The Hague, The Netherlands, February 8, 2006 – Dutch rock sensation Within Temptation and game developer Spellborn NV announced a groundbreaking new partnership today.

Within Temptation will be providing exclusive songs to be featured in the worldwide in-game introduction events surrounding the release of the upcoming online PC game The Chronicles of Spellborn. This is the first time in history a platinum-selling rock band and the developers of a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game have announced such collaboration, marking a new era in the fusion of the arts of music and making games.

Within Temptation’s guitarist Robert Westerholt says: “Almost all of the band members are fanatic gamers. At home and on tour we play fantasy-orientated games to relax and sometimes even to get new inspiration. When we heard about The Chronicles of Spellborn and the fact that it was developed in The Netherlands, we were eager to contribute and write some exclusive tracks. Further collaboration beyond these tracks will be announced soon.”

Spellborn NV Marketing Manager Barry Hoffman adds: “Many of our game developers listen to Within Temptation’s music. Their music has added a whole new immersive dimension to our fantasy world. When the chance came to collaborate to this extent, we were extremely enthusiastic. Gamers have always listened to a lot of atmospheric music while playing whatever type of game. It was an obvious choice to want to work with a band that is capable of providing such a haunting and beautiful feel. This kind of collaboration is an example of true synergy between the music and game development industries.”
