Epica feat. Kamelot "The Haunting"

This is the song, "The Haunting (Somewhere in Time)" from Kamelot's seventh album, The Black Halo (2005).

The singers are Simone Simons of Epica and Roy Khan of Kamelot. They are both Dutch and Norwegian, respectively, trained in opera and sing in gothic/symphonic metal rock bands. In the song, Roy is a prominent young alchemist who is disappointed with the inadequacy of science and religion to answer his questions. He searches for the ultimate truth that can only make his life worthwhile. There is much more to the story, but this narrative album is worth exploring.

I simply love this song. Khan's voice is simply amazing and powerful. It has a very gothic theme as if I am traveling through time in different parts of Europe.

Enjoy the video!
