EPICA CONSIGN TO OBLIVION – THE
ORCHESTRAL EDITION Limited Purple 180gram Audiophile Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
Two years after the monumentally massive splendour of The Phantom Agony (2003), Epica released their majestic successor Consign to Oblivion. On this album, inspired by the Mayan culture, the group around mezzo-soprano Simone Simons and guitarist Mark Jansen broke new ground. The music was getting more accessible and the variety of the compositions grew, ranging from unadulterated gothic-metal to ballads. “This album marks Epica’s growth into maturity”, Mark Jansen stated. “This is the album I always wanted to make. Now we’ve finally had the opportunity and the capacity to realize a project like this.”

The album offers an overwhelming mix of gothic metal and orchestral arrangements based on epic filmscores: sparkling, glamorous, fierce, compelling and very versatile. Specially for this vinyl release the complete album comes with previously unreleased orchestral versions of all songs. On Consign to Oblivion – The Orchestral Edition Epica show themselves as an imposing and tightly-knit machine with almost Wagnerian power, proving in all aspects why the band is regarded as the vanguard of the international female fronted gothic-metal scene. A glorious album by a great band, including 4 bonus tracks, included orchestral version of Epica classic’s Cry for the Moon and The Phantom Agony.
