Epica - The Phantom Agony

Posted on Tuesday, February 22, 2011

This is the standard Goth Metal formula with the chick singer and all, but it’s certainly better than average and even contains some heaviness and aggression. I’m a little reminded of Darkwell, with just a touch of latter day Therion, although Epica isn’t quite as good as those comparisons would imply. Still, this is a worthwhile album, but it does have a few missteps. And I don’t really understand the need to have both the album and “single” (edited) versions of the title track on here. More is better, I guess. The Phantom Agony was a pleasant surprise.
