Its really hard to pick one song from this band, it has a lot of good songs, by the way this an amazing song, you feel so good when you play it on the guitar.
The most complete Epica song so far, perfect balance between all instruments and choir and many amazing guitar riffs
Epica's Masterpiece, everything from growling/angelic vocals to heavy/symphonic music creates a perfect blend for the most epic song
It is a really hard struggle between Design Your Universe and this songV3 Comments
Again really catchy vocals, and a nice rhythmic section with the guitar & drums in the middle - petrucci75hammet
One of the most epic ballads ever, with Simone's vocal talents on full display. Lovely piano riff and an awesome guitar solo! - petrucci75hammet
Hard to imagine how one person could come up with such a beautiful piece to play on the piano. Indeed one of the best ballads ever. I can't help but feel that the song is not long enough, and that it deserves to be the intro to 20 minute epic.
Perfect voice, perfect melody, perfect lyrics, perfect alternation between "hard" and "soft".V1 Comment
This a pretty much perfectly constructed song, with catchy the piano lead-in, the beautiful vocals and the short but sweet guitar solo. - petrucci75hammet
The whole song is really a Masterpiece!
After the rhytmic part the calm part in the end makes me cry...
Apparently there was one more slot.
Just YouTube the songs. You will not be disappointed.
My favorite Epica song. The riff is so awesomeV1 Comment
This is not only symphonic but also a 13-minute PROGRESSIVE metal masterpiece, rivalling the likes of Dream Theater! - petrucci75hammet
If you could name just 1 song that defines Epica as one of the most EPIC music groups ever, Then look no further than Kingdom of Heaven. One of my favorite songs of any Band!
Doesn't let up for a second. Lyrics are an incredible masterpiece.
This is an addictive masterpiece that gives you chills. Deserves to be on top, for sure.V4 Comments
I accept that not everyone is into long songs (this one is nine minutes long) but if you listen to it completely, you'll understand this is the most beautiful song of epica. It is complete and it can be used to introduce someone who has never listened to epica. Because this is epica. The lyrical style, the melody... Okay, for me this is the masterpiece of epica
One of the band's early songs, with a nice mixture of driving vocals in the 'metal' sections and also orchestral elements - petrucci75hammet
Nah, I think this is the most underrated epica's song, how come this epic song is so low? Should be at least Top 10
Underrated, one of the best songs of Epica. Must be at least at Top 5.V1 Comment
This is the song the got me interested in Epica and my favorite song lyrics wise.
Beautiful song. Not my favourite, but my favourites aren't on here. Not just is it unique for it's proggresion from powerful and soft ballad into high metal tune, but it's beautiful message
First song I heard by them so it will always be my favoutite. Beautiful lyrics and vocals (of course) and awesome progressionV2 Comments
Legendary, can't be ignored, perfect song!
I think this is awesome. Simone and mark too.
Above all, its orchestral version beats the normal version by far, I'm just addicted to it and can't stop listening!
Simone's voice is epic, so does mark's. I really like the heavy rhythm part where mark is growlingV9 Comments
One of the band's ultimate masterpieces, the intro is perfect, with the sudden transition into a brutal rhythmic section before Simone's calm vocals come in. It sounded really amazing live in Sydney! - petrucci75hammetV3 Comments
This is a really original piece of music, almost an instrumental but not quite. - petrucci75hammetV1 Comment
This is one the songs which originally got me into the band, the lead-in from the prologue "Indigo" is perfect, with the killer orchestral riff combined with the 'thrash-esque' metal beat! - petrucci75hammet
This song is one of the times where you just love Mark's grunts and Simone's vocals together. Not to forget, it's catchy!V3 Comments
Beautiful piano ballad, which then builds up into a nice guitar solo - nice lyrics, too. - petrucci75hammetV3 Comments
1st song I heard of Epica... Instantly hooked... A banshee kind of voice...V1 Comment
This is a brutal yet melodic blend of thrash metal, of course with the characteristic contrast between Simone and Mark Jansen's vocals. - petrucci75hammetV1 Comment
I like how the 1st verse begins with a groovy bassline, then builds up into the chorus, which of course has Simone's signature vocals, full of emotion. - petrucci75hammet
I'd place this higher up, but apparently there can be only 5 songs in the first 5 slots.V1 Comment
One of most energetic songs of epica. Awesome intro and the guitar at the end gives a great final blow.V1 Comment
Best song by Epica, it's made to be more mainstream, but it still conveys the band's best qualities.
I love this song, the ending is epic!
I think this is the best epica song everV4 Comments
