I found it quite impossible with all the elements they have
So far i have spotted atleast

Power
Symphonic
Death
Black
Progressive
Melodic

You cant put them to just one category haha

Of course you can't Razz That's why they are one of the most complex metal bands ever Smile But I think Symphonic is the one they used the most thought.

Of course you can't put them into one category. Epica is a sophistiacted band, and all the elements they use in their music make them perfect to me.

Symphonic:Kinda everyting xD.But TPA and CTO are the most symphonic ones(in melodic terms,that meaning less heavy)
Progressive:Most from TDC and DYU
Black:Chasing The Dragon(blastbeats),Death Of A Dream,and some elemnts on the TDC title-track.
Death:Mostly from DYU:Martyr Of The Free Word,Kingdom Of Heaven(certain parts),Semblance Of Liberty etc.
Melodic:The ballads,but that was obvious

But I kinda suck at recognizing genres so I might be wrong

well nice one,but i don't find it that simple Laughing

it would rather be "symphonic" than "classical",althought a lot of people find those two just the same.
But there also are some black metal elements...and some gothic atmosphere Very Happy

Yeah well true, there isn't that big difference between symphonic and classical, we're talking about the same thing which is important!
As I've understood, symphonic can be like only synthesizer rolling on when again on classical they include the orchestra instruments aswell.

What goes to black metal elements, I wouldn't exactly include it myself Cool Black metal is pretty much very dark with very dark lyrics. As far as I know, the lyrics makes it
black. Epica has in my opinion decently neutral lyrics even when they're often criticizing religions. They could make it a lot more straight so it'd be easier to interpret them
as insults. They don't which is nice. I really like their style, it's just criticizing. I'm an atheist myself and I try to be as tolerant as possible when talking about religions. I could
write a lot about the idea of religions. I've been talking with many of friends of mine who couldn't understand them at all, but after chatting for a while they really got it
and agreed my points. Of course some religions push their "members" to war etc. and it's just wrong.

Like Mark once said (something like this): "Believe to it or don't believe, but if you do something for the religion and you have no clue what for, you're an idiot. Don't be blind!"
I can't actually say if it was an interpretation by me, though. Ok pretty much offtopic, but I just like to write when I do, sorry Very Happy Very Happy

Black metal means pretty much the style of drumming and guitar sound and way of playing, not lyrics, i have seen black metal with satanic lyrics and fantasy lyrics Wink

Hm, at the moment many ppl would say "what does it matter??", but I don't know why it's always interesting to analyse genres Very Happy
Are you sure about it? I've heard black metal gospel which is basically white metal, not black anymore. It sounds exactly the same as black metal, because the music is the same, but lyrics are different. Obviously can't usually divide the words.

Genres are such bitch, i love the analyzing too but normally in the end i piss somebody off badly Laughing
Wikipedia thinks the same as i do:
''Black metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal. It often employs fast tempos, shrieked vocals, highly distorted guitars played with tremolo picking, double-kick drumming, and unconventional song structure''
They just explained it much better Razz

Do we need topic for only finnish speaking?
I need some twist for my shit english skills haha.

+ 1 xD

But i don't find symphonic as just the synth rolling on...cuz symphonic pretty much reminds of the word symphony xD which is a very complexed orchestral composition.Containing the whole orchestra xD
But,yeah,pretty similar meaning between classicall and symphonic,so it's okay.
