Within Temptation – Let Us Burn

The latest entry in my music DVD collection is the latest Within Temptation live concert DVD and CD set Let Us Burn. It features two concerts on one DVD and is pretty good value for money. The music is great, the Elements concert has the band backed by a wonderful orchestra, the sound is rich and lush. The second half of the DVD is a concert of new material from the Hydra album, one of my favourites from last year. There is a slim booklet with the disks as well, all in all this is a great package for the fans and will also be likely to turn on new listeners to the Within Temptation sound. The lead vocalist Sharon den Adel has a wonderful voice that soars into the sky in one second and dives in another. Her vocal style is clean, so you won’t hear female growling on the Within Temptation records. At least not so far anyway. I can’t imagine Sharon doing the growling thing but it has been proved by artists such as Floor Jansen that it can be mixed with clean vocals very well.
