PostSubject: Re: Interview Topic   Thu Oct 02, 2008 8:31 am

I can't remember whether or not this has already been posted. I don't think so though.

Metal-Ways: How do you feel about the soon to come release of the Black Symphony DVD?

Robert: Iím very proud of it, and it doesnít happen very often. I know that, at least for fans, it will be amazing. I think they will enjoy it a lot. I think that the special thing with this DVD is the concert because itís recorded in such a high quality and it was such an experience! Besides, there is quite a nice interview with the band, from a Dutch television channel. We never had it on a DVD before, so itís really nice.

M-W: In which way were you involved in the editing and the producing process?

Robert:They make the first mix and then we go through the whole thing and we say: ďCan you take a shot from this, can you take a shot from thatÖĒ This is how it works. The better the people are, the less you have to do.

M-W: In a previous interview, you said that the band really likes acoustic performances, and that it is one of the reasons for the Theater Tour. Are there other reasons?


You know, we got the offer to do it. Then, I also checked with another band that was playing in a theater. Whatís so nice about the theater is that itís very intimate, much more than a club show, even if itís a club show for 300 people. If everybody sits, everybody sees everything perfectly. Itís very much about the music. Thatís a very exciting thing.

M-W: But do you really think that people are going to remain seated? Because WT fans are clearly not used to stay still!

Yes, I think they will. Well, I hope that in the end they will stand up. That would be cool. You know, itís a different show. I mean we are also going to play electric. Itís not going to be full acoustic. Weíre going to play songs differently.

M-W: Are there going to be surprises on this tour? For instance special guests or very old songs?


Yes, there are going to be some songs we havenít played a lot, and also some songs which you wouldnít expect so much to be played acoustically. And show wise, I think there will be a few surprises.

M-W: Could you give me a hint?


Weíre going to try to make it a very magical showÖ

M-W: In a French interview, I read that you were going to use this acoustic concept to make another DVD. Can you tell me more about it?


No, we wonít. Thereís no plan for that. At this point, weíre just going to record it for ourselves.

M-W: This year, you supported Iron Maiden on a few gigs. Their tour was called Somewhere Back In Time, and they performed very old songs. Is it a thing that you would like to do with Within Temptation somewhere along the line?


I think we need at least five more albums to do something like that.

M-W: You said many times that the French audience was really nice. So do you think that one day there will be a Live in Paris DVD?

Live in Paris sounds very nice. Thatís great, thatís like Live in Tokyo. Absolutely, maybe if we do more Black Symphony concerts with the orchestra in other countriesÖ

M-W: Is this something youíre working on?


Yes, we are working on it. We donít know if itís possible but weíre going to try to do it [still talking about Black Symphony concerts in other countries].

M-W: In Rock en France, you did an interview where you said that you hadnít any new material yet. But do you know in which direction you want to work?

Yes, itís probably going to be kind of a concept, but itís so early still that nothing is really sure yet. But weíre trying to look in that direction.

M-W: Will it still be less metal than before?

We never felt that we sounded less metal. I even think that the last album is the heaviest record we made. So for us, thatís never a discussion. It has to do with the music which comes out of you. We are always experimenting more to ourselves, although I donít think we make such big changes. We have to surprise ourselves (in a good way of course). Thatís for us the most important thing.

M-W: In Rock en France, you opened for Metallica. The French Mets fans were not that respectful to you. How did you manage to keep smiling and trying?


To be honest, I hardly see them. Iím so into the showÖ I don't really have problems with it. And itís also the other way around: if there are people supporting us, among them there will be people looking completely bored at the other bands. That happens as well. Itís fineÖ

M-W: Over the past eight years, you only missed two editions of the Appelpop. Whatís so special about this festival?


I donít know. It also surprises me that we played here so much and I think that itís also because our schedule is often free at the beginning of September because we have no tour and the festival period is over. So itís again the last festival weíre going to play this year. Another strange thing is that itís always great. Every year you think that maybe Appelpop is going to be boring, but it never is.

M-W: What would be for you the best thing about being a part of Within Temptation?

The best thing is that you can make your music. The creative part of the whole thing is, for me, absolutely the best thing.

How can it be possible to like something as CRAP as Nu-Metallica and not like something as wonderful as WT? The world is crap.

Neutral Cant believe they were disrespectful to WT. You'd think the male metalheads would aleast like Sharon even if they dont like the music. Even if you dont like the support band theres no need to be disrespectful. Neutral They didnt get bottled did they? Sad

I wish I could read it. xD If it were spoken word, I'd be able to. *pouts*

::EDIT::
Translation by Puk2 on the Official Forum:

Quote :
During gigs all the brakes are released by Sharon den Adel (34) from the band Within Temptation. But this podium beast has another life besides the band. With a Ďbonus cardí (itís a card you can get from a Dutch super market) on her bunch of keys, two cats, a boyfriend and a child.

On stage
Sharon: ďFriends sometimes call it a transformation when they see me during a performance. I can understand people being amazed, cause privately I tend not to be too much in the light, I keep myself more in the background. But on stage I show another side of me. A side that I really need to express. On stage Iím an extreme version of myself. I dress differently and feelings wise I can let myself go a lot more. But I still stay the same person. I donít do anything to get the adrenaline going, it just happens when I go on stage. All the locks open and all the brakes release! I have different faces. Everybody has, but sometimes you donít get to see them. I remember that we played at Lowlands in 2000. My former boss Ė I was still working in the fashion Ė was watching us and he was totally shocked. That I was so different, he just couldnít get over it.

Iíve never been a real entertainer, and I think Iíll never really be. Shooting videoclips: a disaster! I donít like it to be pretty in front of the camera and do these dance moves. But Iím always happy with the result. Donít get me wrong, I think my job is the most beautiful thing there is, but the attention is not really my thing. When I havenít played for a while, Iím not really looking forward to it. I can still be so nervous before a show. I can hardly eat. But itís actually a double standard, because on the other hand Iím really looking forward to going back on stage. I like the interaction with the audience. I like to look at people in front of me, because it gets me more into the music. Itís especially the feeling before a show Iím not looking forward to. All the eyes are focused on me. The band, especially my boyfriend Robert (guitar player Within Temptation, red.) supports me, and after the first song Iím not nervous anymore. But people have great expectations, and these expectations become bigger now more people get to know us. And that sometimes scares me. ĎCan I give everybody what I want?í is what I think. Thatís why I found it refreshing going to America, where only a small group knew us. I had the feeling that the Americans were more overwhelmed than the people in Europe.

Iím a real perfectionist. After a gig, if something went wrong, I can be really pissed off, and go on about it for hours. On the other hand, when the show went well, you can compare me to a bouncing ball. Then Iím so full of it, that in order to calm down I really need some wine.

Until recently we never went partying till the early hours of the morning. I was always very conscience about my voice, it is after all my instrument, but I'm getting more relaxed about that now. I still make sure we don't go on stage the next day with a hangover, but nowadays we go on for a bit after the show. Weíre actually getting more rock-Ďn-roll!Ē

Home
Sharon: Sometimes old acquaintances come up to me and go really surprised ďDo you have a child?Ē. I never really was a typical mother. But Luna is 2 and an half now, and an huge enrichment in my life. A life that has changed 100% when she was born. Now itís not all about me, thereís somebody depending on me. A beautiful idea. Itís no problem for me to combine a life as an artist and motherhood. Yes, I have to go out early to take her to the crŤche, but if it was very late that evening, Iíll just go back to bed after that. I cook, I do the shopping, I have two cats: I have a normal life at home.

I really can enjoy spending an evening on the couch, watching National Geographic, or cuddling down somewhere with a good book. Bourgeois sounds so negative, but yes, we do everything what other families do as well. Iím happy that we have these normal things in our lives, like bringing your child to the crŤche. It keeps your feet on the ground.

Robert and I tour a lot, sometimes Luna stays with our family, but sometimes she comes along. Because of that sheís becoming a real rock-Ďn-roll baby. Recently she made this little Ďmetal-handí, with her fingers in the air, you know? Robert showed her that for fun.

When weíre not on stage I wear casual clothes and almost no make-up. People tell me that I look different in Ďreal lifeí. Or, what is really funny, people ask me if Iím Anniko van Santen! (Dutch presenter) ĎYou have a familiar face, are you Anniko van Santen? No? Family then?í I already heard that since I was 18.

Robert and I are already 15 years together and we also work that long together. Thatís not always easy to combine. We have our relationship and our work and we want to keep that separate. But thatís not possible. So when we have free time, we donít spend that together. I meet up with friends or go away alone. Thatís something I can really enjoy. This year I started playing tennis, which I really enjoy. Itís also good for your relationship. If you see each other too much, youíve got nothing to tell. We both live the same things. If I went out for a dinner with friends, or he, then we have something to talk about. And then it strikes me again how good he is in telling things. We didnít do that for a long time, but at a certain moment we noticed how important that is. PremiŤres or other red-carpet parties is not really our thing, then youíre in these spotlights again. I donít feel the need to be in the spotlights. In our free time we donít go that much to the other band members either. I know them all so well and I know that theyíll always be there for me. But itís the same as with your family: you love them, but you donít have to see them all the time. I spend so much time with them, that Iím happy when weíre done with Ďworkingí. Iíll only take Robert home!"

So she CAN cook! xD
