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”. 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 re-release the complete album comes enhanced with previously unreleased orchestral versions of all songs. On Consign to Oblivion Epica show themselves as an imposing and tightly-knit rock 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 16 bonus tracks, like the singles Solitary Ground and Quietus.
