It is much better than Design Your Universe which is the other Epica album that I own. The musicianship on Quantum is amazing and Simone's singing hits a real high. Slowly over the course of the album a whole operatic story unfolds. The lyrics add a lot to the whole feel of the album and are really quite philosophical. You can see the band dug deep to draw this amazing music from within.
Symphonic Metal does not come better. The emphasis in this album is probably more on symphony rather than metal, but I don't mind that. I love the title too..... ;-) Excellent album.
If you liked the other Epica albums you will love this album too.
The album is just under 70 minutes of pure symphonic metal brilliance and I defy any fan of Nightwish, Within Temptation, Delain & Xandria not be blown away by this album.
My initial misgiving was that despite repeated listens, the materiel on offer here didn't come across as varied or as accesable as their previous album. But that was then and this is now, as they say - if I want "Requiem for the Indifferent", it's still there, just as good as ever. This is a different beast, I feel. It has all of the standard Epica trademarks (as you'd expect) but they have moved on a bit, which is probably a good thing.
As I said, I can't fault this album. As you'd expect, all the performances are flawless. Simone's voice is just beautiful. Isaac's solos are outstanding - not self indulgent or over long but just right to enhance the songs - he's the best thing to happen to Epica in a good while!
If you like Epica - you won't be disappointed. If you like symphonic metal in general - again you won't go far wrong with this one.
All in all, it deserves it's 5 stars.
Well done Epica!!

Epica are one of my favouite female-fronted symphonic metal bands. Their music always move me. The LP just gives a much warmer sound and is a very good quality.Published 10 months ago by PhilMet
