Within Temptation - Live in Concert
September 13, 2011 - Electric Factory Philadelphia
Within Temptation

For nearly three years, I’ve envisioned attending a Within Temptation concert ever since first listening to and thoroughly enjoying "Our Solemn Hour." Initially, I was taken aback by their bombastic sound and the power of Sharon’s voice in either her soprano vibrato or her glorious belted notes. While, Evanescence seems to be the first band that people commonly find to be comparable to Within Temptation in sound. For me, Within Temptation bolstered the symphonic elements that are muter in Evanescence’s music and made the sound more sophisticated overall.

The Flight of The Valkyries V

The Flight of The Valkyries Festival
November 19, 2011 - Sonar Club Baltimore
Flight of The Valkyries

I can’t possibly be the only one who gets a little depressed every year in mid-October, when I know that 5000 miles away, in Wieze, Belgium, the concert of my dreams is taking place. Thankfully, this year, something smaller, but similar, took place a mere hour from where I was. I’ve been looking forward to the Baltimore edition of Flight of the Valkyries ever since I couldn’t attend last year. But this year was my year. I could finally go to a concert dedicated entirely to female-fronted metal, so I quickly bought my VIP ticket and headed down to Baltimore for the show.

Within Temptation - Live in Concert
September 12, 2011 - Rams Head Live Baltimore
Within Temptation

As the whole east coast was swept up in a frenzy at the news of Within Temptation’s first North American tour in four years, I decided I would actually go to two shows. I had bought my tickets to the New York show already, thinking it’d be a one-off thing, but when the band announced additional dates, I figured I’d go to Baltimore too, because, you know, it’s Within Temptation.
