Dutch symphonic rockers WITHIN TEMPTATION will release their sixth studio album, Hydra, on January 31, 2014. The album will be available in several formats. The cover artwork was created by by Romano Molenaar (X-Men, Batman, The Unforgiving).

If you Pre-order Hydra via iTunes now, you will instantly receive the first two singles: "Dangerous", featuring a guest appearance by former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Howard Jones, and "Paradise (What About Us?)", featuring ex-NIGHTWISH singer Tarja Turunen.

"Dangerous" will be available on iTunes Europe starting December 20. Check out the song's official video right HERE.

The Hydra, a mythological serpent creature from ancient Greece, couldn't be killed. When one of its many heads was cut off, two more grew in its place…

"It's like us – undefinable!" laughs WITHIN TEMPTATION guitarist and songwriter Robert Westerholt. "What's more, Hydra is a perfect title for our new album, because like the monster itself, the record represents the many different sides of our music."

WITHIN TEMPTATION collaborated with several other special guests on Hydra, including Dave Pirner of SOUL ASYLUM and U.S. hip-hop icon Xzibit.

One of the album's heaviest tracks, "Dangerous", was recorded with the former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Howard Jones, whose epic vocals are a perfect fit for Sharon's.

"I always loved Howard's voice," she says. "He makes the song even heavier than it already is. That song is one of my favorite songs on the record and one of the fastest we've ever written. It has the most bass drums we've ever used, too, and a very fast riff which we doubled with synths. It's not a typical synthesizer, though — it's distorted like a guitar, and it's very aggressive."

Hydra goes from strength to strength with "Whole World Is Watching", featuring SOUL ASYLUM singer Dave Pirner.

"When we wrote "Whole World Is Watching", Dave was at the very top of our list. He has such a captivating voice: it made the song exactly how it needed to be."

Right now, Hydra can be pre-ordered in two luxury formats: the digital premium version and a deluxe box set including extra Hydra products.

The digital premium album, complete with digi-booklet, will be available on iTunes and includes 18 audio tracks and a music video. The digital premium album features bonus "Evolution Versions" of four new songs, which contain audio commentary from Robert and Sharon and give you unique access to the development of the songs, their lyrical inspiration and the sound of the initial demos and vocals.
