Epica is a place in the universe where you can find the answers to the questions of life. It fits our lyrical topics very well. Mark and I knew each other already from 2002, back when he was still in After Forever. Mark knew Coen and Ad from working with them in the past. Coen once auditioned for the keyboarder of AF and Ad played in a support band that played with After Forever. Ad is not in the band anymore since 2 years and our very first drummer left the band about 4.5 years ago. Isaac and Arien were on the same music school as Coen. - Simone for Embrance You magazine

U is for UnSun (Aya)

"UnSun is a Polish gothic metal band formed in 2006 by ex-Vader guitarist Mauser and his wife, lead vocalist Anna "Aya" Stefanowicz. Originally named Unseen, they later changed their name to UnSun to reflect their blending of death metal influences and melodic vocals. Mauser and Aya added additional musicians to complete the group. In 2007, the group was signed with Mystic Production."

10337 I can’t speak for everyone, so when I personally make my ‘reasons why I love Symphonic Metal’ I don’t intend to imply that everyone does or should too. I make the confessions for other people who love the genre to enjoy. I hope it doesn’t come off as ‘LOVE SYMPHONIC METAL OR ELSE!!!’ Everyone has different tastes after all. I also make so many Symphonic Metal admiration confessions because I like to focus on appreciating the things I love rather than on hating bands/genres I don’t care for. But again, that’s just me personally.
