EPICA – release second studio clip for ... - 2014-03-07

2014-03-07 - Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA have released the second episode of their behind-the-scenes look at the recording process for the band’s sixth studio album, »The Quantum Enigma«. The video also includes clips of music from the new album, which will be released in Europe on May 2nd, in the U.K. on May 5th, and one May 13th in North America through Nuclear Blast.

Watch the footage on the Nuclear Blast YouTube Channel:


EPICA recorded »The Quantum Enigma« with producer Joost van den Broek (REVAMP, AFTER FOREVER) at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in The Netherlands. The album has been mixed by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HATESPHERE) and features artwork by longtime collaborator Stephan Heilemann.

Whereas 2013’s massive »Retrospect« performance captured EPICA’s past decade as one of the leading bands in the symphonic metal scene, »The Quantum Enigma« marks the beginning of a new era for the band: modern, heavy, and without compromises.

EPICA keyboard player Coen Janssen shares the following about the new album:

"We believe that »The Quantum Enigma« is the album that will take us to the next level! The reactions from the fans on the first part of this documentary strengthens this belief even more!”

EPICA will return to the stage for their album release show on April 30th in The Netherlands and various festival appearances this summer.
