3 stars In my opinion, Epica released two of their first albums that are solid but not too memorable for fan searching for distinctive metal music. Although they have had solid symphonic traces and music execution at the time already, there isn't the appetite for experimentation and development that started in 2007. Epica is capable of writing accessible melodic pieces like "Solitary Ground" or "Quietus" no wonder these became Epica live anthems. My favourites as a prog metal fan are the two tracks with the longest names such as the Consign To Oblivion ('A New Age Dawns' #3) that has pretty versatile music surroundings ranging from extreme vocals (Death/Black) to elegant classical feel. A promising album.
