|Top 10 Epica Songs|
Because I honestly have nothing better to do. Seriously.
Fools of Damnation
Truly, the gem of The Divine Conspiracy. Yeah, it has some serious Kamelot influece, but it's not a rip-off. Not only the best song of The Divine Conspiracy, but their best overall. I might be overrating it because I saw it live, though. I wouldn't put it past myself.
|2||Kingdom of Heaven|
This is another awesome song, it even has an Opeth-ish passage! Damnit, so awesome. That "you have to go back!" part is kinda silly, but other than that, it's awesome overall. Also seeing this live got the rating up by a lot, like it did with Fools of Damnation.
|3||Mother of Light|
Consign to Oblivion also has some seriously good stuff. One of their most memorable songs. Awesome, awesome stuff.
|4||Martyr of the Free Word|
Yeah, Design Your Universe will have the most songs in this top 10. Kinda different from the rest of the album, Simone's vocals are less operatic here, but they work.
|5||The Obsessive Devotion|
This is overall awesome. Great combination of about everything. Powerful intro for a pretty good album.
The first song by them I ever listened. One of the most operatic songs of Consign to Oblivion, a personal favorite of mine. Slow paced, but I like that.
|7||Cry For The Moon|
I would shot myself if I didn't add this. One of their first epics, and it is pretty damn awesome. Shame for the grunts, they ain't that good, but that doesn't stop it from being awesome.
|8||Tides of Time|
Beautiful, beautiful song. Powerful lyrics. Simone's voice is perfect. That sums it up.
|9||Death of a Dream|
Last song of The Divine Conspiracy in this list, and it manages to make it here mainly for the badass factor alone. One of their heaviest songs, and they make it work. The parts where Simone takes over are just breathtaking.
|10||Resign to Surrender|
I was torn between Unleashed and this, but this made it. Such an epic intro for their best album... I love this.
