Performer : After Forever
Album : Exordium EP, 2003
This is After Forever EP released in 2003, contained version of The Evil That Men Do, sung by Floor Jansen, now hired by Nightwish. She gives a very good cover on that, a slightly heavier than what usual in After Forever. The middle intro break which replaced by string attack is memorable. The power metal berserk drum attack near the end is good climax.
Very good rendition in a style of European Symphonic Power Metal.
