C'ETAIT DONC VRAI !!!!!
"Dans une récente interview donnée au magazine polonais HardRocker, Sharon parle d'un album solo."
D'apres latraduction de l'officiel anglais...
"We want to play everywhere, where is possible."
Is really few bands so characteristic, that we can recognize them after a few sounds.
One of this bands without a doubt is Within Temptation. Their untypical blend of symphonic music, magical and solemn epic clime and strong guitars with so great charisma of vicalist allowed them to attain zenith of rock stage.
Not much bands have so big respect at fans of metal, gothic and rock music.
HR: You are very popular in our country – last days was your concert in Warsaw. What do you think about it?
Sharon: It was ver, very good audience, it was a bit suprised us, because in fact we never played in your country and we didn’t know too much, what we can to expect.
You know.. often writing to us people, or when we meet them at our concerts in other countries they talk – “pleace come to play in our country”, but sometimes it is not easy.
But generally people in Poland like our music
HR: What do you think: music of Within Temptation is better to small clubs – as at your concert in Poland, or more for big festivals, at open air?
Sharon: You know.. I think this two cases are totally different. In small club we have exemplary 1000 people, but it is only our public. At big festival we play for several thousands of people, but also play there more bands than you, so in audience are also fans of other bands – so atmosphere is totally different, but it is nice, because may meet us people whose never listened our music.
HR: Soon you will play again at Masters Of Rock in Czech Republic. I don’t know you know, but are there a lot of fans from Poland. How you mention your first performance at this festival two years ago?
Sharon: It was really amazing. People really well-received us. You know – we always want to play everywhere, where is possible. We are always happy, that we can play in new place
HR: In november last year you played acoustic concert in radio – I listened this material, and I have to tell, that it sound really interesting. Are you planning to issue it official?
Sharon: You know.. It’s very possible, we going to make some CD with acoustic songs and is possible, that we issue this material.
Maybe we add it as bonus to some reedition, or to special edition of some album... We’ll see
HR: Soon you will play as support for Iron Maiden. As far as I know you are fans of this band. And I so contemplate... maybe you will record some Iron Maiden cover?
Sharon: Yes, we like very much Iron Maiden. I’m not sure you know, but our guitarist – Ruud play in coverband Iron Maiden!
HR: I didn’t knew!
Sharon: (laugh) oh yes... he know probably all their songs, last time he was at international gathering of Iron Maiden’s fans, and played there with his band.
HR: So what with thic cover?
Sharon: (laugh) No... I don;t thin so.. but maybe sometime.. Now we want to make our music, write our new songs.
HR: Look, Iron Maiden have two computer games, about history of band... Can you imagine game about Within Temptation?
Sharon: (laugh) OMG, you are really suprised me. I think one of our guys should tell you about it, they are interesting with games. I really don’t know.. It’s hard to imagine it (laugh).
HR: I change a bit topic.. Apart from Within Temptation you recrded songs for much other CD’s - inter alia for After Forever, Ayreon, Avantasia and much more. How you can find time fot it everything?
Sharon: You know... it is not as, that I making it everything in one time... Sometimes I have a few free weeks or something like this, so I can do it. Of course sometimes I have to refuce for someone, but for example sometimes bands are sending me their songs, and I recording this songs here – in studio in Holland, and later I refer them this audio recording.HR: Do you thought abou you solo CD?
Sharon: Eee.. about solo album?
Sharon: Yes, I thought about it. Well… I don’t really know if it would be exactly a solo album, maybe just other album, with other kinds of music and other people. Although as for now I don’t have time for this, due
to the work with Within Temptation.
HR: Accurately I wanted to ask about it: Within Temptation is very active band.. you started already write new songs for nwe album?
Sharon: Yes... very slow, but we are doing something... that’s are really initial ideas, but generally I can tell you – Yes, we making new material (laugh).
HR: And again set off on a different tack... I’ve read somewhere, that you projecting your dress yourself, and that generally you like projecting clothes... And I want to ask – Are you planning make clothing line “Within Temptation”?
Sharon: (laugh) It’s strange you ask about it, because we are planning it.. (laugh).
But I don’t know how it will be look, but we are working through this idea
HR: You know... before I started to work for Hard Rocker I was fairy.. Your daughter is now 3 years old, right?
Sharon: Yyy.. yes... ?
HR: So how you find the time for reconcile concerting with your family day-to-day life?
Sharon: You know.. my daughter has very nice grandpa and grandma! (laugh).
We of course spending with her a lot of time, She is the most important. I think will be more dificult when She will be older, and when She will be really miss us.. then we’ll have to choose who will stay at home.
HR: What choose... Robert won’t go (laugh).
Do you think your daughter sometime say: “I want to be rockstar as my mom” ?
Sharon: (laugh) I hope so...
HR: Ok.. Unfortunately we have not too much time, so we have to ending...
Have you seen advert of Loreal shampoo, made by one of your fans?
Sharon: (laugh) yes, I saw it
HR: I’m sure, poeple from Loreal didn’t pay you yet for this?
Sharon: (laugh) Unfortunately not.
HR: Thank you so much for this interview, Kisses
Sharon: Thanks a bunch, bye!"
