This metal epic just came out (Jan 2015) and really impressed me - a powerful combination of symphonic and progressive elements.
And yes, this band deserves more attention - their musicianship and consistency are exemplary. They will never become very popular because their stuff is too epic, complex and somewhat odd for the mainstream.
The biggest master in this band is Hansi K├╝rsch - nobody's perfect but his voice comes close to my idea of perfect metal vocals (studio and live). Besides, his tonal versatility is unmatched and you never know which one of his several voices he's gonna use next. This particular song doesn't show it very much but he's a tonal chameleon and allegedly - a vocal god, and... (hehe) - the ruler of Germany. - Metal_Treasure

This is an absolute masterpiece from Epica, uniquely combining progressive and symphonic elements - petrucci75hammet

People are too deaf in choosing their best and epic progressive song. The intro and the vocals in this song will drive you insane. The transition is very powerful. The instruments are alive and superb. You would not listen for more than any song because this song is too perfect. I can listen to this the whole day over and over again without stopping. - joshsanz
