    Sounds good, but more or less classic Epica.

    "The Quantum Enigma - Kingdom Of Heaven Part II" Here's hoping for some leitmotifs.

    For me, Epica have always released either superb, or above average records. I do wish, however, they'd vary their style a little bit, like the performance on Consign To Oblivion, where the bombastic style was toned down; that was a brilliant album.
    Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to this a lot.

    Good thing about this is that it sounds better than Requiem For The Indifferent. I hope the album as a whole is better than their last, for me it was their least entertaining album.

    The start sounds like something from Wintersun Time.

    Sounds promising.

    Oh boy, this got me excited! After quite disappointing Requiem For The Indifferent I truly hope something good out of this one.

    Ugh, at times the album sounds like the new ReVamp, which would be OK except for the fact that we know that Epica is better than that. Other times it sounds a bit "poppy" and not unlike Within Temptation. Much anticipation, they did not deliver for me.

    Why can't they just write Design Your Universe 2.0?
