The most great feeling is to see one the famous bands when they are in full action and int he pic of their glory.Epica is one from the few bands in the world who have 6 perfect albums.
The live show starts with the band Jaded Star one new form with the most known member the singer Maxi Nil ( ex- Vision of Atlantis and a lot of local collaborations). They played for 45 minutes songs from their debut album.Nothing important when you wait with agony to hear and see Epica.
The worst for us of the live was the 40 minutes dead time to wait for the appearance of Epica.
Finally Epica start their live show with the intro (classic) “Originem”. Like all the time first came in the stage Ariën van Weesenbeek the drummer,after the keyboardist Coen Janssen , next Isaac Delahaye the lead guitarist and Rob van der Loo the bassist and after them the great Mark Jansen and finally when started the first song “The Second Stone” appear on stage the goddess Simone Simons.
Epica played songs from all their albums and of course from the last masterpiece “The Quantum Enigma” .
I will notice that Epica always respect 100% their fans .They asked from the fans to choose between hearing “Sensorium” or The Last Crusade , and the fans decided to hear “Sensorium” .
Epica rocks on and played under the stage near to the fans.I will notice and the excellent solo of the drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek ( over 10 minutes!!).
The headbanging of the band was explosive Issac and Rob were amazing and Simone magic with her perfect voice,with her beautiful appearance and her energy in the stage,also it was great surprise when she spoke in greek language .
The song Design Your Universe was the last but the fans were in ecstasy and screamed ” we want more”
Coen Janssen with his portable keyboard came again on the stage and played his solo until all the band came again for the encore.
Sancta Terra ,Unchain Utopia , and finished with the song Consign to Oblivion , and Mark scream loud ” are you ready for the last rumble ? “.
Finally the live show of Epica was a life -time show! I wonder how to be able to see another live show of other band after this GREAT SHOW!
RATING 10 PLUS!!!!!!!!
