Editor’s Note: Sundays are no longer for church; in 2019 they’re reserved for Dutch symphonic metal. Veteran torchbearers Within Temptation roared into Boston’s House of Blues on March 3 on the strength of last month’s Resist. “With this record, we’ve taken inspiration from modern music and gave it a face — a very dark one,” says Within Temptation singer Sharon den Adel in a statement. “Sometimes, it feels that today’s pop music lacks a rebellious edge. Our main goal was to collect pieces from sounds we did like and roughen it up as much as we could, resulting in a surprisingly new musical world that is heavier, dirtier and more futuristic than we’ve ever created before. Resist is our take on metal in a new way: To give modern music its rebellious edge.” That was on full display Sunday nigh, and Vanyaland’s María Alejandra Mata was on Lansdowne capturing visuals of it all, including shots of openers In Flames and Smash Into Pieces. The whole thing was quite the visual, and you can scan through Mata’s full gallery below.
