WE WILL TAKE YOU WITH US
Symphonic metal maestros Epica’s grandiose offering WE WILL TAKE YOU WITH US sounds like the merging of Lacuna Coil, Opeth, and Evanescence, as this collective of Holland’s finest have re-released their debut with a few added bonus tracks here. On the nine-track offering, a smattering of hard rock nuances and orchestral devices collide head to head, creating a huge sound capable of overtaking Broadway at any given moment. Hell, Epica even throws in a cover of “Memory” from the famous play CATS for good measure. If you’d like some female fronted heavy metal with a penchant for melody and laden with symphonic glory, Epica is your dream disc.
