Epica, Moonspell, Starkill

When: Mon., Feb. 1, 6:30 p.m. 2016

During the last decade, the Dutch metal powerhouse Epica has refined a complicated and theatric formula that has made its music popular if predictable: Summon the force of death metal and the grandiosity of power metal with the music, and let a mix of arching operatic choruses and burly, grunted verses do the same. It’s much more gripping than, say, the bastardized American radio counterparts of Evanescence but not nearly as open-ended and adventurous as the breadth of the band’s obvious influences. At the very least, Epica rivets until dragging you into the rut, too. —Grayson Haver Currin
