Dutch Symphonic Metal band Within Temptation have released the single ‘The Purge’, which finds vocalist Sharon den Adel on her lyrical quest for atonement.
den Adel told us: “‘The Purge’ revolves around self-reflection and a search for redemption.
“No one gets through life without scars or without inflicting them on others and there will always be moments in your life you start questioning your choices. You start realising you have made mistakes, causing harm to not only others but also to yourself.
“To confess, to acknowledge and to accept these mistakes, can be a very painful process, however, unescapable when the burden becomes too heavy.”
‘The Purge’ follows ‘Entertain You’, which was the first of a series of digital single releases.
