"Dangerous" is the second single from Dutch symphonic metal/rock band Within Temptation from their sixth studio album "Hydra". It was released exclusively to iTunes on December 20 with an accompanying music video. The song features guest vocals from ex-Killswitch Engage's lead singer Howard Jones.
During den Adel's promotional travelings throughout Europe, gave critics and radio stations was given access to the new material, and the first public impression from came through German radio station Rock Antenne, alongside with the first preview of Dangerous, which was considered "fast" and "agressive". The song is one of the band's heaviest to date, as den Adel stated that "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."
