Epica - 'Unchain Utopia' (Omega Alive)

We're in a time where all enterprises fall
We should beware of the wolves that haunt us
They are not all the same, cannot take the blame
Await the time to unchain utopia

Am I the only one who sees the troubled lines?
Reading illusive writings on the mirror
Is there a way that we can all erase mistakes and start anew?
Don't mislead us and stop stabbing with blunt knives

Liberty unchained

We're in a time where all enterprises fall
We should beware of the wolves that haunt us
They are not all the same, cannot take the blame
Await the time to unchain utopia

What is a reason to wreck hopes and all our dreams?
You're leaving endless riddles for the masses
Does it make sense to mend the cracks that you hide behind our backs?
It's afflicted by a virus of the brain

Liberty unchained
Recite the insane

We're in a time where all enterprises fall
We should beware of the wolves that haunt us
They are not all the same, cannot take the blame
We should beware of the lives that are at stake
Before it's all too late

Can we believe it all?
Should we all take the fall?
Our backs against the wall
United we stand tall

Why should we all believe you?
Carry your own burden
We won't succumb to
Your delusion now

We're in a time where all enterprises fall
We should beware of the wolves that haunt us
They are not all the same, cannot take the blame
Await the time to unchain utopia

Why should we all believe you?
Carry your own burden
We won't succumb to
Your deceiving games
Conquer the insane
United we stand tall
Time to free ourselves once more from the ball and chain


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’.»
