I think I prefer Nightwish, but I also like Epica. Any thoughts?

I find Simone Simons a lot more palatable than Tarja, and even if I don't particularly like either, Epica is at least more interesting than many of these female fronted symph metal bands (Within Temptation and After Forever are other such).

I'd take Epica over Nightwish any day, though I do like Nightwish.  But Epica is more interesting to me.

I like both, but since I don't like growling so much (I like Epica's non-growl songs), I go with Nightwish. I like Tarja's era very much, and the latest album (without Tarja) was really great for me.

I think both are OK, not my favorite music, but I enjoy them on occasion.

But honest to God, Epica have an early DVD that did blow me away.  I loved this.  Live in the studio, with intimate discussion and some killer music.  If you like Epica even a little, get this.

Seen them both live - prefer Nightwish by quite a wide margin.
