WITHIN TEMPTATION's 'The Silent Force' Tops Dutch Album Chart

WITHIN TEMPTATION's "The Silent Force" has entered the Dutch album chart at position No. 1. The first single off the album, "Stand My Ground" (video: Windows Media, Real Media), currently occupies position No. 13 on the Dutch single chart.

"The Silent Force" was mixed at Toytown Studios in Sweden and was produced by Daniel Gibson, who co-wrote four songs with the band, including "Stand My Ground". Additional songwriting credit on "Stand My Ground" comes from Han'some, who, like Gibson, is represented by EMI Music Publishing.

WITHIN TEMPTATION's "Mother Earth" album, which was originally released in 2000 and then re-issued in 2002 to rave reviews, reportedly sold 350,000 copies in Europe and reached triple platinum status in Holland.
