Within Temptation are gearing up to release their new album, ‘Hydra,’ on Jan. 31, and a new trailer has surfaced teasing the record. The video, seen above, features a portion of their new song ‘Dangerous,’ which boasts a guest appearance by former Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones.
Frontwoman Sharon den Adel says, “I always loved Howard’s voice. He makes the song even heavier than it already is. That song is one of the fastest we’ve ever written, and one of our favorite songs on the record. It has the most bass drums we’ve ever used, too, and a very fast riff which we doubled with synths. It’s not a typical synthesizer though — it’s distorted like a guitar and it’s very aggressive.”
Fans who pre-order ‘Hydra’ via iTunes will immediately receive ‘Dangerous’ along with the previously previewed track ‘Paradise (What About Us?),’ which features a guest appearance by Tarja Turunen. Fans can also look forward to the ‘Dangerous’ video on Dec. 20.
Other guests on the upcoming album include rapper Xzibit and Soul Asylum’s Dave Pirner. The band also covers songs from Imagine Dragons, Lana Del Rey, Passenger and Enrique Iglesias on the deluxe edition of the disc.
