Epitaph is an album by Vancouver industrial band Front Line Assembly, released in 2001. With the release, Metropolis also issued a Digipak version that contains a hidden bonus track and was limited to 25.000 copies.[11] Even though the bonus track was originally announced as untitled,[11] its title was later revealed as "Submerged".[12]

The track "Existence" is featured in the 2002 horror film Resident Evil but not on the accompanying soundtrack.[13]

Single[edit]

Everything Must Perish is the only single taken from Epitaph. Along with the original version the title track is featured as radio edit. Non-album track "Providence" is sung by Jenifer McLaren, also guest vocalist on Delerium's Poem. Johan Carlsson from Release Magazine wrote that the band has taken "a more mature and melodic route"[14] with the single. Noting the Delerium influence on "Providence", he described the song as "beefed up, speeded up and dancified Delerium track".[14]
