Epica - 'Kingdom of Heaven, Part 3' (Omega Alive)

[I. Ātman]

Oceani nos guttulae
Spiritus omnium viventium
Miscere cum universo

[II. Sri Yantra]

Rise and shine with all your light
Awake the force within you
Wade in waters filled with joy
Try to find the place that hides
The treasure in the palace
All the stars are by your side

This bright light
Does shine from within you
Inside
Life does thrive
And those that ridicule never know

Just as water turns to snow
What is above so is below
In time we learn to heal the cells
We can cure ourselves
Use this healing energy
Form a holy trinity
This is the knowledge that we have been searching for

The barriers will fall

Rise to heights
Those who seek will know
All shadows will flee
Go with the flow of life
Those who seek will see
Endlessly

Balance and harmony
As above so below

Wise do search as fools emerge
Don't fear the ones that judge you
All you find they will deny
Trust your heart as it's the way
Refine the finest diamond
Look inside you are divine

This bright light
Does shine from within you
Inside
Life does thrive
And those that ridicule never know

Just as water turns to snow
What is above so is below
In time we learn to heal the cells
We can cure ourselves
Use this healing energy
Form a holy trinity
This is the knowledge that we have been searching for

The barriers will fallω
[III. Halls of Amenti]

Deep within the heart of Earth lie
Veiled for men, the Halls of Amenti

[IV. Duality]

We all are divided by space-time
Our duality
We all fall apart in this lifetime
Together we stand strong
Together we are one

Wherever we will go
Energy does flow

We all are united by nature
Our coherency
We all are a part of each other
Together we stand strong
Together we are one

[V. The Chikhai Bardo - Navigating the Afterlife Realms]

As we linger towards our final breath
Forge yourself, be ready for the moment of your death

I
Collide

Darkness dies in light
Embrace your final breath
Navigate beyond your death

[VI. The Flower of Life - The Cosmic Spiral]

Rise, perceive and do believe
That wisdom lies within you
All what's lost can be retrieved

This bright light
Does shine from within you
Inside
Life does thrive
And those that ridicule never know

Just as water turns to snow
What is above so is below
In time we learn to heal the cells
We can cure ourselves
Use this healing energy
Form a holy trinity
This is the knowledge that we have been searching for

Just as water turns to snow
What is above so is below
In time we learn to heal the cells
Use this healing energy
Form a holy trinity
This is the knowledge that we have been searching for

The barriers will fall

May thy kingdom come


Ο δίσκος των Epica 'Omega Alive'
Άκρως ενεργοί δισκογραφικά μέσα στο 2021 οι Epica. Ένας "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος ("Ωmega"), ένα live album, τρία EPs και ισάριθμα singles ο απολογισμός των Ολλανδών symphonic metallers, ο οποίοι αποχαιρετούν την χρονιά με το "Omega Alive" που κυκλοφόρησε προ ημερών. 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)...

Simone Simons: «Here it is! Our latest and greatest Epica show in the history of the band: ‘ΩMEGA ALIVE’. We are beyond excited about this release, in which we can all relive our most special performance to date. We wish you a lot of musical moments and we hope that you don’t wake up with a headbang hangover after checking it out. ;)»

Coen Janssen: «The whole third act was built around the “Kingdom of Heaven” songs. The third part (from the ‘ΩMEGA’ album) just had to be played, so we came up with ‘Elysia’ - the kingdom somewhere in the sky. A new decor resembling a throne room and a massive chandelier with acrobats in it set the tone for this song. For the ‘piano-solo’ we had an extra surprise up our sleeve… playing it while it was on fire! A stunt we could not rehearse since the piano would be destroyed afterwards! Under great guidance from our pyro-crew, we managed to pull it off. Luckily, the part only lasts about 30 seconds since it was extremely hot, as you can imagine! Since this looked so cool on stage, we also lit up the gong at the end of the act, with Ariën hitting it with a flaming torch. These images turned out way cooler than we expected - too bad we can’t do this live!

➜ What we wanted to do was the ultimate Epica show where we could fulfill every dream we ever had, where there was room for all the ideas, effects and props that are just too big to be taken on tour. Far from your usual streaming concert, the band developed a trademark feature called a living backdrop. We built another stage right behind our stage where lots of things were going on the whole time. And we meant that very literally. Every song got something extra, something unique that was fitting its world.

➜ After releasing our new album, ‘ΩMEGA’ earlier this year, we found ourselves with great new songs, aching to be played live, but without a stage to perform them on. We still wanted to give our fans the best possible release-show like we always do, so together with Jens de Vos from Panda Productions we came up with a way to bring the Epica experience into the homes of our fans all over the world. ‘ΩMEGA Alive’ will be Epica’s biggest show ever! We will go all out on everything we have to offer and I can tell you - it’ll be one massive audio-visual spectacle!!! Immerse yourself in the world of Epica and join us during ‘ΩMEGA Alive’.»
