One of the most overrated bands in the Prog/Power music circle in my opinion.

I wouldn't really consider them to be "in the Prog/Power circle". They draw influence from prog and power no doubt, but moreso Gothic/symphonic and melodic death metal.

Well those styles are still in what I consider the greater Prog/Power circle - especially the gothic/symphonic stuff - but even Melodic Death Metal if we're talking about bands like Mercenary, Scar Symmetry, etc. Epica is headlining a night at Prog/Power USA in 2012, so clearly they're associated with the bigger picture of the genre.

I have never been a fan, but I went in with a fairly open-mind when I saw them open for Symphony X in April... terrible, if you ask me. Seriously, I just don't get what people see in their stuff.

I agree with you here. Epica is to prog/power as Hate is to black/death for me. They have all of the necessary components, and they don't outright do anything completely wrong - the music just isn't great as a whole.

Ok, I see where you're coming from.

As for the quality of their music, they're one of my top 10 favorite bands so I'm not going to debate that :lol:

Studio version of "Storm the Sorrow" is currently available on YT. Not sure how long that will last.
