** "Hand of Sorrow" from ''The Heart of Everything'' was inspired by Creator/RobinHobb's ''Literature/{{Farseer}}'' trilogy, though the lyrics are just vague enough that it could be applied to any number of stories as well.

After the release of their first album GothicMetal album ''Enter'', the band became prominent in the Dutch underground scene. It was not until 2001 that they became known to the general public, with the single "Ice Queen" from the album ''Mother Earth'', which reached #2 on the Dutch charts. Since then, the band won the Conamus Exportprijs four years in a row. Their next two albums ''The Silent Force'' and ''The Heart of Everything'' debuted at #1 on the Dutch charts. In 2008, they released a live DVD and CD, ''Black Symphony'', recorded with the Metropole Orchestra. This collection was followed in 2009 with ''An Acoustic Night at the Theatre''.

* AbuseTropes; "Frozen" and the short film for "Triplets" has these sort of tropes in spades:
** [[AbusiveParents Abusive Father]]:
*** "Frozen:" The father abuses both his [[DomesticAbuser wife and daughter]] in the "Frozen" video.
*** "Triplets:" The father apparently molests his son, as evidenced by his hopping into the same bed.
** AllAbusersAreMale: Both videos.
** DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale:
*** "Frozen:" The wife [[KickTheSonOfABitch poisons her husband's drink]] after he ends up abusing his daughter. [[spoiler:This ends up averted -- she ends up on death row for her actions and it is [[DownerEnding strongly hinted]] the daughter goes to an [[OrphanageOfFear orphanage]]]].
** {{Patricide}}:
** "Triplets:" A subversion, the son kills his father as revenge for the abuse, but it was with a grenade in his bed so he dies from the explosion as well.
** WouldHurtAChild: Both videos.
