Thrilling new EPICA album

23 Oct

Soaring vocals! Orchestral mayhem! Thunderous rhythm section! Thrilling video! It must be gothic & metal brilliance, this time from EPICA. Just listen to Unleashed from their new album, Design Your Universe (on Nuclear Blast) for a Must-Buy-That-Album-Now moment:


Epica and Lacuna Coil to play at Graspop in June

7 Feb
Graspop Metal Festival

Graspop Metal Festival

Epica and and Lacuna Coil are being listed to play at the 14th edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting, set to take place June 26-28 on the festival grounds of the Boeretang in Dessel, Belgium

Epica have been described as “epic, grand and majestic”, which suits their name and also the fantastic vocals of Simone Simons with all the power and clarity of her mezzo-soprano range

in other Epica news, they have announced that Isaac Delahaye will be their new fulltime guitarist to replace Ad :: you can see the new lineup at the Paaspop festival at Schijndel in the Netherlands on April 12th

Lacuna Coil are down in Australia for February, followed by March, April and May in the States :: having seen them recently in the UK, when they were quite awesome, all this extra touring may see an even better band on their return to Europe
