If you like metal music but not to the extend of hardcore, then you might like Epica. Epica, also known as Sahara Dust is a Dutch symphonic metal band formed in year 2002.
The band members includes Simone Simons (vocal), Mark Jensen (electric guitar and distinguishable screaming), Isaac Delahaye (guitars), Coen Janssen (synthesizer, keyboard and piano), Yves Huts (bass guita) and Arien van Weesenbeek (drums).
The unique part about Epica is that many of its music are performed in the style of symphonic metal involving classical strings orchestra that make their music more soothing to listen to compared to other metal music.
