Epica - "Rivers" (video)

Become one with imagination
No more fairytales
(No more fairytales)
Our souls will unite together
We will lift the veil
(Lift the veil)

Your touch has turned to stone
No fire in your bones
It's time to leave the past behind
The road is neverending
All dreams will start ascending
Beyond the boundaries of the mind

Break loose from the chains
Rise above the waves
Fighting in the darkness
Dancing in the light
Break out of your cage
Turn another page
Drowning in the river
Swim against the tide of life

Holding tight to the ever after
Living for a sign (Living for a sign)
To survive raging storms together
Through the eye of time (Through the eye of time)

The eye shows no reflection
No dreams without inception
Exists within oceans of time

Break loose from the chains
Rise above the waves
Fighting in the darkness
Dancing in the light
Break out of your cage
Turn another page
Drowning in the river
Swim against the tide of life

The coil in which we're living
Is more than another prison
The scheme of life became deranged
Dark clouds with silver linings
Attain the mysteries of shadow and shine

Break loose from the chains
Rise above the waves
Fighting in the darkness
Dancing in the light
Break out of your cage
Turn another page
Drowning in the river
Swim against the tide of life


Το Ελληνικό γράμμα ωμέγα αποτελεί τον τίτλο του νέου δισκογραφικού πονήματος των Epica ("Ωmega"). Ο δέκατος "ολοκληρωμένος" στουντιακός δίσκος των Ολλανδών συμφωνικών metallers αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει τον επόμενο μήνα, στα τελειώματα του χειμώνα.

Οι Epica "υπάρχουν" στο μουσικό σύμπαν από τις αρχές της χιλιετίας. Σχηματίσθηκαν από τον Mark Jansen το 2002 όταν αποχώρησε After Forever. Αρχικά (για έναν χρόνο) ως Sahara Dust (με την Helena Iren Michaelsen στα φωνητικά) και στην συνέχεια ως Epica. Το όνομα της μπάντας είναι εμπνευσμένο από τον σχετικό δίσκο των Kamelot ("Epica", Ιανουάριος 2003)...

Epica: «We’re excited to launch the ballad, “Rivers” - the third single from our upcoming album, ΩMEGA. Our friend, Jens de Vos from Panda Productions created a beautiful visualizer to accompany this release.»

Simone Simons: «Our third single has arrived! ‘Rivers’ symbolizes the calmness and, at the same time, the uncertainty in life – the ebb and flow. The calm water represents peace, and a strong river stream means that you have to face challenges and swim against the tide of life.»
