2 stars There's a lot of metal operas these days. Even the so-called 'gothic' bands, you name it... take some guitars, what keyboards, a grunter (typically a man), a soprano and off we go... In Holland we have the group Epica, who took the title of the last cd of the much- appraised Kamelot as their name. They did a semi-live performance, just in the studio, but better than off the record. They have excellent talent! One of the background vocalists is the brain of this opera. She invented for this a new language, a bit like the LOTR language and made up a story. The first 3 - 4 tracks are fresh and good. Then, to my opinion, there is a major mistake: to take Glenn Hughes as a main vocalist. An old rocker with a childish voice, they could better take a better one. If you leave out the parts of Glenn, the music is majestic.
