Tonight I was stoned by the sound of this band: Epica. Is this a gothic metal band? No! I'd rather say it is a gothic metal orchestra! An orchestra with a powerful sound, an original message within the lyrics, and voices from heaven and hell. Yes, heaven and hell, because this is the best way to mix the sounds and the lyrics!
How did I missed them by now? Nevermind! From now on they are not only on my favourite list, but in my heart and mind!
