I like Amanda's voice as well! She's talented. Her collaborations are great, but I'm not really fond of her solo music.

He's Floor's ex. Laughing I hope they're all cool with this situation.

Man... the only good version of Chasing The Dragon ever played was the one with Amanda in the vocals. Simone always amazes me with her ability to make their awesome ballads sound lame live. lol!

Well, I´ve never listened to Epica so I can´t really compare, but after seeing and hearing Simone at Masters of Rock... Isn´t she sometimes a bit... tone deaf? silent
