Within Temptation is record- and genre-breaking since the release of their new album The Unforgiving. This cross-media concept album is based on the storyline of a comic book series written by Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne/Dark 48) and illustrated by Romano Molenaar (Witchblade/The Darkness/X-Men).

The Characters from “The Unforgiving” even hit the movie screen in 3 short films as extended version of the band’s video clips and give further insight into the concept.

“We didn’t want to make a traditional concept album where you just make up a story and write lyrics to tell the tale,” explains guitarist Robert Westerholt. “Books we read or movies we saw inspired us to write lyrics or a song, and that’s how we wanted to approach this.”

This October 22/23 the F.A.C.T.S. convention welcomes Romano Molenaar as an official guest. Romano is the artist and designer of the Unforgiving comic book series and of the album artwork as well.

"Romano and Within Temptation... the best of both worlds", said Emmanuel van Melkebeke, F.A.C.T.S. Convention Director. "I cannot wait to hear what the fans think of this new concept."

F.A.C.T.S Comicon is the signature pop culture event of the Benelux, presenting guests and programming to cater for the top segments of the comics, anime, sci-fi, film, TV, and gaming industries.

Entering its 21st edition, F.A.C.T.S. is expected to draw over 16,000+ attendees to its October 22-23, 2011 convention held at the Gent Flanders Expo Convention Center located in Gent, Belgium.

The show will again sport 12,000 square meters and will host over a mile of dealers of toys, comics, movie merchandise, fantasy merchandise, manga and will see 1000+ cosplayers and a cosplay competition, life size props, Star Wars diorama, LEGO sets, model kit exhibitions, an entire fan-village, huge game zone with dozens of consoles, as well as loads of surprises, to brighten up the already amazing venue!
