Nice song, but I have heard better ones from the band. Let us hope that the rest of "The Quantum Enigma" is of higher quality

I love it , the riffs sounds like "Design Your Universe" indeed ... heavy and catchy. but I don't like Simone's voice on the chorus , when she sounds like she did on the song "Guilty Demeanor".

Pretty good

Awesome single! I'm impatiently awaiting the moment I get to hear Simone completely bomb it live on a shitty youtube camera video.

Not bad, but not great. Usually the choruses on Epica's singles are bit more addicting, but this one is kind of so-so. The music is great, though.

Pretty damn good! Finally operatic vox are back! Only thing wrong is its a little "schizophrenic" with the abrupt tech death-y riffs and not as catchy as previous album singles but overall pretty good and I think at the least this album will be much better than Reqium.

After the clips and now the single, things are sounding very good. Back to the quality of DYU.

I love it. The band seems in top form.
In regards to Simone's live performances; I personally enjoy her imperfections live, and it's all the more better, then, when she does hit the high notes. Where's the fun in perfection?

The song sounds great, though Simone's vocals seem to turn me off in the chorus part.
HellriderRising - 15.03.2014 at 21:10  
So and so.

I don't really like the guitar work other than the chorus but the vocals are incredible. Very much influenced by Within Temptation.

Overall great song 7.5/10
