The Top Ten
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...
Perfect Symphonic Metal Ever!
Apparently there was one more slot.
Just YouTube the songs. You will not be disappointed.
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!
This is just more than a normal Song. It's everything positive about Epica and similar Bands put together. And that isn't just a little bit, as especially this Band has almost nothing negative. Long story short, this is more than just a mortal Song-being.
This metal masterpiece has a complex structure and is well-composed both musically and lyrical. Epica really know how to express a philosophical and scientific message and connect with their fans.11 Comments
Again really catchy vocals, and a nice rhythmic section with the guitar & drums in the middle - petrucci75hammet
Epica has signed it's name under many masterpieces, however Chasing the Dragon raises above them all. The combination is just too perfect, the amazing music, touching lyrics, Simones voice that's woven in the song, and of course the powerful build up that incorporates Mark's deep grunting.
I'm moved just by talking about the song, but when I listen to it the impact is so intense, I experience an emotional trance. Bravo Epica!
This is the song the got me interested in Epica and my favorite song lyrics wise.
Such a great song. I love it.
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 message3 Comments
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".
A beautiful song, the best of the album.3 Comments
It's perfect in every way possible
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 song6 Comments
My first symphonic metal
This song single handedly got me to symphonic metal
Legendary, can't be ignored, perfect song!
I think this is awesome. Simone and mark too.12 Comments
This song is truly a masterpiece. Even though the album just came out I think this song will become a classic.
This song will become a classic of the band.
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.
My opinion : best song of epica
The lyrics, the instruments, the vocals...it´s just perfection!
One of the most (or, simply the most) energy songs by epica, is awesome too!
What WITH THIS LIST?!
THEY CHANGE IT OVER AND OVER, WHERE IS ''SERENADE OF SELF-DESTRUCTION'' AND ''FOOLS OF DAMNATION''? - juan101
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
Among the first songs I heard from EPICA all the way through, and it quickly managed to grab hold of me with its mesmerising orchestral composition along with the purest of voices
Nah, I think this is the most underrated epica's song, how come this epic song is so low? Should be at least Top 104 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! - petrucci75hammet
Number 1 in my book! This is my all time Epica favorite!
My favorite. Wonderful in lives.
Best Epica song ever1 Comment
Best song from Consing to Oblivion.
This is a musical composition which perfectly demonstrates the band's ability to create music without having to rely completely on the vocals. Let the music speak with its own voice!
Nice one. Interlude but a master piece.
This is a really original piece of music, almost an instrumental but not quite. - petrucci75hammet
A really good song
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!
One of the best experiences live3 Comments
Beautiful piano ballad, which then builds up into a nice guitar solo - nice lyrics, too. - petrucci75hammet
Just make me start to cry.
First Epica song I heard. Made me buy all their albums.
I cried when I heard this. First Epica song I've encountered!1 Comment
Should be at top 10 at least, this one is so good
1st song I heard of Epica... Instantly hooked... A banshee kind of voice...
This is the best Epica song for me. One of the first and best.
Even better with Floor Jansen
Simone's voice in this song sounds really beautiful with the instrumental. I also like the ending when the deep voices sing the chorus together
It share epic feelings, and I feel like if a where on the Sancta Terra.
This song is epic and eloquent.2 Comments
Best romantic-gothic intro/it's a great sample for mixing the dark and bright music. Great work
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!
Woahh... The best song ever from Epica. I started listen to Epica because of this song. Well balanced music, powerful lyrics and the drums... made this song awesome.
I'm in love with this song, I think is one of the top by Epica.9 Comments
One of the bests songs of Epica with difference.
How is this at 20? This is Epica through and through, it's the first song that comes up when you search their name on YouTube, and it's a beautiful song
My first Epica song, it's so awesome! It's got such a great melody and Simone's voice is perfect!
This was my first Epica song and it's incredible
Perfect, has everything.
Why isn't this on the top 10?!
I just love this song!1 Comment
Just gonna leave this like this.
Just an amazing song
Classic Epica. Best song on their best album.
Haha I'm here until you take this to top the top 20 at least. I'm a poltergeist now POLTERGEIST OF TheTopTens
Still not in the top ten... AND descended to number 26... YOU WILL NEVER LEARN -poltergeist
Listen to this with the intro song 'karma' and it becomes epic. One of the major works (well I don't know what that means now lol) of Epica and it needs to be ranked higher.
This is my third comment on this masterpiece and I'm strarting to get really depressed.4 Comments
For me this is #1 Epica song
This song epitomizes the name of the band. It is truly epic.
Amazing track, perfect in every aspect, I would introduce someone to Epica with this one. Should be way higher in the list.
Epic orchestration and Simone's voice so beautiful. This should be the best of this band too. - InfinityZCraft3 Comments
This is a brutal yet melodic blend of thrash metal, of course with the characteristic contrast between Simone and Mark Jansen's vocals. - petrucci75hammet
Legendary & inspiring one
Best way to end the album. The ending gives me the chills every time.
Masterpiece! This song has everything, the lead vocals, the chorus, the guitar, the changes between phrases... since I hear it, I put this song on my top! every minute and second delight my ears and senses. A incredibly made song.
This is a true masterpiece of the genre! A superb blend of epic choirs and vocals, fast heavier riffs, high Simone vocals... A perfect mix between symphonic and progressive metal. The lyrics are very deep and philosophic as always. I can't stop listening to this song, even if it's 11+ minutes. I enjoy every drop of it!
Epic intro and outro! This masterpiece makes me shiver. The whole song is a pleasure to listen to! Every second of it! What an amazing composition. I need to hear this live with a full orchestra and choir. It needs more votes!1 Comment
Such a beautiful song. Deserves to be in the top 10!
I listened to a few of their songs. This by far ruled my world
Just one word to describe this masterpiece "ORGASM"
I really love the choir parts in the song. I find them so catchy to sing a along to.
This song has such a beautiful chorus!
Not my favorite, but my second favorite. My first favorite isn't on here for whatever reason. Ascension - Dream State Armageddon is my favorite.
Simply waaaw the high pitched vocals are beyond anything words can describe
Maybe the best performance of Simone. One of the most beautiful ballads I've ever heard.
Beautiful and very expressive song, I just love it.
Best slow song ever!
You should cry :')2 Comments
Their heaviest song. Mark and Simone do a fabulous job on this. Should be top 5...
Victims of contingency, sence without sanity and omen are the best of the quantum enigma definitely
This is my favorite Epica's song, absolutely perfect!
Best Epica song so far.
Such a perfect song... Can't believe it's number 36!
This good Song. Why on number 28? Its Must be Number 1
The main riff is an orgasm for my ears.
I agree. So many fans don’t even know of this song since it’s just a bonus track. It is everything you would want in an Epica song.
Epic chorus! Should've been part of the album. So many are missing out on this masterpiece.
One of the most emotional songs by Epica.
WHAT! I can't believe I had to add this! Definitely one of my favorite songs of all-time.
My favourite from The Phantom Agony, such a melancholy song.
