Article description

Comes in a Digipak.

The symphonic metal legends EPICA are releasing a unique project that they have written and recorded together with 16 famous guest musicians.

Always pushing forward, always reaching higher: In the 20 years of their existence, EPICA has never shied away from challenges, has weathered every storm, and has elevated the symphonic metal genre to heights that no one would have ever believed. Since 2002, the band, led by metal world star Simone Simons and her long-time musical partner Mark Jansen, has released eight highly innovative and cinematic albums, has Toured the world multiple times, and has forever left its mark as one of the most productive and admired success stories in the world of Heavy Metal .

With whimsical and surprisingly humorous artwork by Heilemania, EPICA embarks on a journey through seven extraordinary new songs. Together with various selected guests – from extremists like Fleshgod Apocalypse, Niilo Sevänen (Insomnium), and Björn 'Speed' Strid (Soilwork), to melodic masters like Tommy Karevik (Kamelot), keyboard legend Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep), or Roel van Helden (Powerwolf), to a unique song with Simone Simons, Charlotte Wessels, and Myrkur – EPICA once again surpasses themselves.

The result is a stunning release that exceeds even the usual range of an EPICA record: 'The Great Tribulation' becomes even more intense and massive with the addition of Fleshgod Apocalypse, the Rainbow-like epic 'Wake The World' stands out with Phil Lanzon's virtuoso keyboard playing and Tommy Karevik's sublime voice, while 'Sirens - Of Blood And Water' brings together the outstanding otherworldly vocal talent of Simone Simons, Charlotte Wessels, and Myrkur for the first time. A new classic of the symphonic metal genre is born.
