A must-buy for any fans of this band

What can I say but that all the performers (the band, the orchestra, the choir), all these incredible musicians absolutely ROCK this performance. The classical portion of the concert was a wonderful idea; the unique take on all these well-known, popular classical songs and movie themes is superb. After all that, Simone Simons still has a heavenly voice, which has a surprisingly pleasing raw quality to it live, and she uses a chest voice and lower register that is not as present on the albums. Thoroughly impressed by this, it blows most live releases of any band out of the water! Highlights: Pirates of the Caribbean, Spiderman Medley, Living A Lie, Consign to Oblivion...all of it is excellent! :)

iTunes genius recommended I check out Epica since I'm a big fan of Within Temptation. So happy I discovered this album.


Awesome possum!
