Epica Begin Recording New Album

Dutch symphonic metal act Epica have entered the studio at Sandlane Recording Facilities and have now begun recording the follow-up to their previous release, The Holographic Principle. The group will once again be working with producer Joost van den Broek (POWERWOLF, AYREON).

Panda Productions will be filming some behind the scenes footage of the process, and the band has also launched their first blog on their YouTube channel, where you can check that out in the video above.

Singer Simone Simons talked about the process by saying:

Welcome to the behind the scenes of the making of EPICA 8. In this first video, we are working hard on the pre-production of our new album, making sure all details are perfect. As always, it was a pleasure to spend time with the band and Joost. I am so happy with how the songs evolved and can’t wait for you all to hear them!

EPICA new album is scheduled for release this fall through Nuclear Blast Records. In support of this album, the band will comprehensively tour Europe during the “Epic Apocalypse” co-headlining tour with APOCALYPTICA and support-act WHEEL.
