At the time of the demo's release, Epica was still known as Sahara Dust and its female vocalist was Helena Iren Michaelsen. But the Sahara Dust demo has been sung in by Simone Simons and not Helena Iren Michaelsen what thinks many people. There are of the demo but 200 copy's of and by the band himself have been spent. The two songs on this demo ('Cry For The Moon' and 'Illusive Consensus') were re-recorded and released later on The Phantom Agony.
Just remembering how Simone's a good songwriter. She wrote ''Illusive consensus'' when she was seventeen. One of their best songs ever. :-) And her voice live is just awsome. Tides of time was perfect @ São Paulo last April. Anyway, Epica's of the greatest things on Earth ever! haha
