Epica - The Phantom Agony [2003]

El album debut de esta tremenda banda holandesa de Metal Gótico / Sinfónico. Un tremendo trabajo nada mas salir Mark Jansen de After Forever y armar su propia banda, logrando una exitosa combinacion de elementos poderosos del metal con sinfonias y coros al estilo clásico, gran influencia de música árabe, la voz mezosoprano de Simone Simons y la voz gutural de Mark Jansen, haciendo una música muy rica.

En este album, Mark Jansen continua con la recopilacion de canciones que componen "The Embrace That Smothers". Las tres primeras partes se encuentran en el album debut "Prison of Desire" (2000) de After Forever y las tres partes que siguen se encuentran en The Divine Conspiracy (2007), tercer album de Epica. Estas canciones tratan sobre los peligros de la religión organizada.

Las canciones de este album tratan sobre acontecimientos actuales ocurridos en el período de escritura del mismo:
  • "Cry For The Moon" trata sobre el abuso de niños por sacerdotes católicos. Fue lanzada como single en el 2004.
  • "Feint" fue escrita despues de la muerte de Pim Fortuyn.
  • "Façade Of Reality" esta basada en los ataques terroristas del 11 de Septiembre del 2001. La canción incluye dos fragmentos del discurso dado por Tony Blair.
  • "Run For A Fall" donde Mark describe la salida de su ex banda After Forever.
  • "Seif Al Din" habla sobre el fundamentalismo islámico.
