I’m curious as to how many people on here are fans of the Symphonic Metal band EPICA? o.o
What do you guys think about their music?
She has a great voice, and I’m curious as to why the song Feint was in a Church with a statue of Mary and a Crucifix, and this other song that talked about Mary agonizing by Jesus on the cross…I wonder if Simon is Catholic?:shrug:
The only album I have of theirs so far is The Classical Conspiracy. I’m a sucker for classical/metal hybrid songs. How can anyone not like a metal version of the Imperial March from Star Wars? I love that album.
I’ve kind of held off on their other stuff because they tend to utilize the death growls a little more frequently than I generally care for. I can deal with the male vocals from Nightwish a lot better because Marco also sings. They’re on my list of CDs to get eventually, though.
I haven’t really paid attention to the lyrics or looked at the videos, so I can’t really say what it means in this particular case. Generally, though, a lot of bands use religious imagery without necessarily understanding what they’re doing with it.
