I know for some this is "oh crap - Babe-Metal, who cares?"; and for others it is "Yes, more, please." For whatever reason, these two bands are the bigger of the female-fronted metal bands who have played ProgPower, so I am just curious who has preferences, and why? For the record, I love listening to both bands, for completely different reasons. Epica has that huge TSO kind of sound with pretty awesome skyward vocals and Jansen's death gutturals reaching out thorugh the woofers. Plus - any live act that gives you the Spiderman theme and Pirates of the Caribbean theme... well, that is just Metal as Hell. Delain is more "kick back, listen to some cool music while I grill steaks." No dragons riding motorcycles, just some catchy lyrics - they sort of have a Cranberries/Blind Melon vibe for me... but with double kicks and good guitar (I mean that in a good way). So now that I've bared my soul with my love for these two acts, share your thoughts.
