Last Tuesday morning, my radio alarm went off at 6.20am as it always does, stationed on Radio 2. I woke up to the most amazing piece of music which really moved me. It was a mix of orchestra with a ethnic/arabic sound. Wow what a start to my day. I couldn't move out of bed until I had heard it all and hoped Sarah Kennedy would announce who it was. She did, it was Globus and the track was Spritus Khayyam. So up I got, made a cuppa went on line and did a bit of research and placed my order.

In the meantime thanks to some free downloads I was able to listen to the snippet of Prelude (On Earth as in Heaven) which was equally as good.

My CD arrived today and all I can say is THANK YOU to all who made this. It is wonderful. It is a mixture of classical, orchestral, choiral and the different styles take you on many different journeys. Love the "French" track at the end which is very apt as we are off to France in 3 weeks. I can just imagine sitting in a cosy French cafe with "Porque Te Vas" playing in the background.Bliss.

Some of the tracks remind me of other songs/artists. In particular Enigma who I absolutely love and own every one of their CDs. I am also reminded of Consumo Percifio by Enya. The track On Earth as In Heaven reminds me of the recent single by Jem.

I would have LOVED to have gone to this concert. Hopefully they will do a tour and please please come to Aberdeen!!! I bet that concert would have been absolutely mind blowing.

To summarise - a fantastic album which takes you through your emotions, a mixture of different world musics and a blend of eroticism in this music. Enjoy.

WOW! I've listend to the whole album several times already. The music takes you on a journey of epic proportions. Its a phantastic mix of great rock, choir and orchstral tracks, an instant classic. A must have for anyone who loves film music, big operatic rock and classical music.

I saw the premiere of this album at Wembley and it was breathtaking. The combination of orchestra, choir and rock band

worked perfectly. Awesome !!

this is easily one of the best albums I have heard in a very long while - and my father and sisters all agree with me on this one. Diem ex Dei truly blows you away, as does orchard of mines, prelude and mighty rivers flow, although I have to say there isnt a bad song on the whole album. has a gorgeous orchestral sound, with modern beats and great vocals. well worth buying!

I love most trailer music, Epic Score, Audiomachine, Future World Music out of all the purchases I have made this has been the only one that has disappointed in places. The music is as always of a high standard but there is a major fly in the ointment on this album.
The music is big and epic, sadly the male singer has a really weak voice relative to the music and some of the lyrics are unbelievably naff. It really ruined some of the tracks me. The female vocalist isn't quite as bad.
If you are getting into epic/trailer/soundtrack music this would not be a recommended place to start.

I really bought this because of the "Preliator" track - now I feel that I ought to have bought the single because the first two tracks have been ruined by the new lyrics and vocals. Epic music should allow the listener to interpret the music as it leads him or her, not to have an arbitrary singer and lyricist ro it for them. If people want this, then they can listen to rap or Robbie Williams doing covers on R1 or Ocean FM,or whatever. I don't want to delete Epicon from off my KFHD, especially as I don't know Amazon's return policy on downloaded material, but I wish I'd been a bit more careful in the first place. Oh, well, comme ci, comme ca...

This album is a miracle of musical mastery. For anyone who loves the infinite variety that movie soundtracks provide, this is a must!
A small word of warning, though, if you already own TrailerHead. You will recognise many of the tracks from that album, although they have been gifted extra vocals and lead singers, all of which step the works up to a new high and in every case (in my humble opinion) improves the music.
Epicon, like TrailerHead before it, sweeps you across the Earth, takes you into the heavens and beyond to the stars whilst plucking at your hearstrings.
An Epic Journey from Epicon.
Recommended for fans of Amethystium, Magna Canta, Lesiem and Era.

A truly outstanding modern and original 'cinematic' aural work, pivoting on a classical/choral base. Contemporary and lucid without pretence, this work has a 'big sound' not due atleast to the 120 or so musicians who participate in its creation. There are some really outstanding vocalists, who in my mind keep this work 'grounded'. Additionally the work is conceptual in the scope appealing to the dreamer, the thinker and philosopher in us all. Mind breaking. With so many creative talents I look forward to their next 'tour de force'.
