More On Dio
Even by the lofty standards of ambitious Dutch symphonic metallers Epica, their seventh record The Holographic Principle is something special. From the defiance of "Universal Death Squads" melodic and complicated heart to the new "Beyond The Matrix" video , the band are inspiring you to "be the master of your own energy." Simone Simons remains a near ideal for this style with her graceful mastery of the genre and powerful range, while even without Mark Jansen in a big role the group soldier on. Not held back by trends, the group reach for the stratosphere with complex but stirring arrangements and have a great track record that ensures new fans will have hours of material to dive into. Rather than just mere escapism, even the weirdest forays into, excuse the term, 'epic' magniloquence and showy musical moments reward rather than school the listener with a heavy hand. Surely one of the more confident and important acts out there, Epica have earned deep respect.
