Epica @ Scout Bar : Houston Concert Photography
Epica is an amazing force to be reckoned with because you get this beast of an operatic sound, amazing guitar playing, sick rhythm section, and a gorgeous voice. The show was a b•tch to shoot because there was no really for us(the photographers) shoot but the lighting made it kinda fun. Difficult but pretty cool and different. Everyone seems to be going to these LED lights which can be horrible but also creates great lighting scenarios at times as well. Always that push and shove... Here's some info on the band themselves.
Epica is a dutch metal band founded by guitarist and vocalist Mark Jansen after his departure from After Forever. They are known for their symphonic sound and the use of female vocals and male growls. All six members write the music, but Mark Jansen and Simone Simons write most of the lyrics, which largely deal with philosophical topics, including science, religion, and world events. To date, Epica has released five studio albums (not including their instrumental album The Score – An Epic Journey), with their most recent studio album,Requiem for the Indifferent, released on March 9, 2012.
