Within Temptation - Let Us Burn (Live 2CD+DVD/Blu-Ray)


Recommended Posts



Dutch symphonic rock band WITHIN TEMPTATION are thrilled to unveil a new live DVD/Blu-ray/2CD. ‘Let Us Burn – Elements & Hydra Live In Concert’ is set for release on November 14 and features two of WITHIN TEMPTATION’s most talked about arena shows ever. The two dates are 2012’s resplendent 15th birthday ‘Elements’ concert and the final night of the ‘Hydra’ European arena tour at Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall in May 2014. When it comes to the live experience, Within Temptation’s status is of a league extraordinaire. These two performances showcase every nuance of their fierce reputation plus stunning imagery and special FX, including even giant fire-breathing dragons!

In November 2012, WITHIN TEMPTATION challenged themselves to create one of their most impressive arena shows ever, to celebrate the band’s 15th birthday. The result was the one-off symphonic ‘Elements’ show, held at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. A dazzling event with 15,000 fans, the band’s dream came to life. Newly inspired, the group went forth to write their critically acclaimed sixth studio album ‘Hydra’.


In early 2014, WITHIN TEMPTATION unleashed ‘Hydra’. This monster record claimed more than 10 European Top-10 chart positions, a #2 position in the iTunes World Charts, and the band’s highest US Billboard Top-20 chart position to date. The album success was followed by a 33-date European arena tour, selling out noted venues like Wembley Arena in London, Le Zenith in Paris, and the legendary Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam (twice).


Over 15,000 fans joined the ‘Elements’ show celebrations and more than 120,000 fans witnessed the ‘Hydra’ beast on stage in Europe, but WITHIN TEMPTATION is far from done. The ‘Hydra’ world tour is currently in full swing in North America. With South America and Japan still to come, more than half a million fans will have seen WITHIN TEMPTATION by the end of this year.


WITHIN TEMPTATION is renowned for releasing impressive live DVDs. Previous release, the best-selling ‘Black Symphony’ DVD, helped make them one of the most popular bands in their genre. At their recent Awards show in Berlin, Metal Hammer Germany presented WITHIN TEMPTATION with the prestigious Best Live Band Award. The new DVD underlines this title.


‘Let Us Burn – Elements & Hydra Live In Concert’ will be released in four formats – DVD + 2CD, Blu-ray + 2CD, 2CD, and digital album. The DVD and Blu-ray contain 34 live audio visual tracks in HD, mixed in 5.1 Dolby Surround. The 2CD and digital album comprise 32 live audio tracks. The two shows have a running time total of approximately 170 minutes. ‘Let Us Burn – Elements & Hydra Live In Concert’ is a treat for rock fans all over the world.

Dan's comments: The pricing of the 2CD + Blu-Ray pack looks quite promising. The WT shop has it at $24.99 + S&H and Nuclear Blast has it for $22.99 + S&H. My guess is that once listed on Amazon it will be at a very decent shipped price for a Blu-Ray release.

New full-length trailer in the form of a music video for "Covered By Roses".


Who says that spectacle is gone from concert performances? They've come a LONG way from just doing short sets at music festivals.

I guess I'm the only one who's watched the Blu-Ray thus far. Just another masterpiece of concert footage. My only complaint is some of the songs that were omitted from each concert.


I can't imagine how much it cost to tour with that Elements group (full orchestra, choir, and effects). The stage setup is massive.

The Black Symphony Blu-Ray still is #1, but this is a decent #2. It's great hearing all the hits from The Unforgiving (Elements concert) and Hydra (Hydra, duh.). There's some duplication of "the classics" which is to be expected.


The Hydra is a more basic band-only concert, as opposed to the full blown orchestra + choir + video + dancers production that Elements is.


While Black Symphony was a fairly large venue and crowd, Elements appears to be even more impressive. Some of the crowd shots are massive.


(The only clips I could find on Youtube are from DVD, and so are a bit fuzzy, not HD).
