Within Temptation nominated for 3 Loudwire Music Awards

The Rock band Within Temptation has been nominated for three 2011 Loudwire Music Awards.

Artist of the Year

Within Temptation is competing with bands such as the Foo Fighters, Evanescence, Machine Head and Avenged Sevenfold to become Artist of the Year 2011.

“Within Temptation made 2011 a big year with their latest album ‘The Unforgiving’, which was accompanied by a comic book and short series of films. Lead singer Sharon den Adel is up for Loudwire’s Rock Goddess of the Year. What more could their fans ask for?”

Rock Album of the Year

The band’s latest album, “The Unforgiving” has been nominated for the title Rock Album of the Year. Other bands who are trying to get their hands in this award are the Red Hot Chili Peppers with their “I’m With You”, the Foo Fighters with “Wasting Light” and Evanescence with “Evanescence”.

“Dutch rock band Within Temptation gave fans a treat with the release of their fifth studio album, ‘The Unforgiving’. The disc was accompanied by a series of short films and a comic book. So far, Within Temptation has released three up tempo songs from the disc, ‘Faster’, ‘Sinéad’ (which will get you dancing) and ‘Shot in the Dark’. ‘The Unforgiving’ is the band’s first album in five years and it was certainly worth the long wait.”

Rock Goddess of the Year

Frontwoman Sharon den Adel has been nominated for the title Rock Goddess of the Year. 2011’s biggest women in rock are in the running to receive this title.

“Sharon den Adel has made a serious comeback this year with her band Within Temptation. Their new album ‘The Unforgiving’ is their first in four years and had gotten rave reviews. Did we mention this phenomenal frontwoman is also mom of three?”

The awards will be presented in January, 2012.
