4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Inspired power metal, 31 May 2007
This review is from: Epica (Audio CD)
Ahhh Kamelot, where do I start? These Floridian power masters are yet to release a bad album, and Epica counts as one of their best.

Based on Goethe's "Faust", this album depicts the first half of the story in which the main character (Ariel) leaves all he knew and sells his soul to Mephisto, and the consequences that ensue. Musically, this album is very well made and well produced, with the foreshadowings of their symphonic and progressive touches that would later reach their full potential on "The Black Halo" The album starts well with the memorable "Center of the Universe" and moves onto the solid-sounding "Farewell" as well as other great tracks such as "The Edge of Paradise" and "Descent of the Archangel". A particular highlight for me is "Lost and Damned", using an unusual keyboard part and spectacular rhythm and melodies. One should purchase this along with "The Black Halo" not only because they form two halves of the story but also because they go so damn well together. However, this album gets a 4* from me as "The Black Halo" is even more amazing in comparison.
