Divine Conspiracy songs Product Information
Divine Conspiracy album for sale by Epica was released Aug 28, 2007 on the Nuclear Blast (USA) label. After two albums of generally finely crafted symphonic metal, Dutch ensemble Epica decided to indulge their orchestral kinks to the fullest with 2005's metal-free The Score: An Epic Journey, but they are back to their usual, genre-meshing stomping grounds with 2007's The Divine Conspiracy, which many fans will likely consider their proper third opus. Whatever the case may be, the album gets under way with the entirely symphonic "Indigo" prologue, before slamming into the metallic portion of the program with "The Obsessive Devotion." This, in typical Epica fashion, showcases not only the angelic soprano of Simone Simons, but also a manly baritone choir and ever more demonic death grunts from bandleader Mark Jansen -- all of them juggling lyrics in English and Latin! As with all of The Divine Conspiracy's -- and indeed Epica's -- best tracks (here including "Fools of Damnation" and "Sonata Terra"), the attraction ultimately hinges on exploring the sonic contrasts of light and dark; the punishing intensity of those elephantine guitar riffs and hyperactive drumming cast against the soaring, layered sweetness of the orchestrated strings and keyboards. Divine Conspiracy CD music contains a single disc with 13 songs. ...See Full Description

||Darker, faster & heavier|
The Divine Conspiracy brings in a way the Dutch band Epica back to its Death Metal roots and, in another way, propels these young musicians to a new dimension of complexity and craftsmanship. This concept album is much heavier and darker than its predecessors, showing more resemblance to recent Dimmu Borgir works than to those of other female fronted Dutch bands such as Within Temptation or After Forever.

||Epica's best yet!|
This is a very good release by Epica, and some might say that it is their best yet. I would actually like to have given this CD is 3.5 rating, but since that is not a option, I gave it a 4. Highlights of this release is deffinatley Simone's amazing vocal talents, the strong songwriting and song structures, and the overall flow of the album.

||!!brilliant epic album!!|
I had seen some pictures of the band, and got my attention caught by their pretty readheaded female singer thinking of some kinda evanescence-like band.
By Jim Osmond (Vancouver, BC, Canada)
This is the worst album of Epica. They ruin this cd with the silly grunts,what sound like mentally retarded drunks on Holloween night.
