Epica vs Attack on Titan Songs
Band / Release Notes
Epica vs Attack on Titan Songs is the second EP by the Dutch symphonic metal band Epica, featuring covers of songs based off the anime Attack on Titan. The EP arranges selected songs originally written and composed by Revo of the Japanese band Linked Horizon.
Another impressive offering from the leaders of symphonic metal
For those of you familiar with symphonic giants Epica, you know that when they put out an album it's going to be top notch. "Attack on Titan" is another quality release with a bit of a twist. All of the songs from the album are from the anime of the same name. For those of you metal heads that enjoy anime, I expect that you will be rather impressed with the work Epica has done in their interpretations of these songs. The original tracks were a really crazy mix of musical styles ranging from classical, metal, and J-pop to name a few. The fact that Epica was able to take these songs and rework them with such quality and panache while still keeping the integrity of the tracks true to the originals is damned impressive. Simone Simons shines again on lead vocals and her voice is stronger than ever, particularly on "Dedicate Your Heart". I am impressed as always by the production quality and the musical arrangements by the band and cannot wait for another full-length album of original material. But this is definitely something that will hold me over until that time arrives.
