EPICA To Release ‘Omega’ Album In February

EPICA will release their new album, “Omega”, on February 26, 2021 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2016’s “The Holographic Principle” was once again produced by Joost Van Den Broek (POWERWOLFAYREON) in part at Sandlane Recording Facilities in Rijen, Netherlands. EPICA has also released the first single from the album, titled “Abyss Of Time”, with an accompanying video that was made in collaboration with Grupa 13.

Watch Abyss Of Time” below.

Vocalist Simone Simons comments: “Finally we can show you the video for our newest single ‘Abyss Of Time’!

“We flew all the way to Poland to work with Grupa 13 for the first time.

“Shooting videos is one of my favorite parts of creating the visual side to our music. The costumes were insanely beautiful. It was so much fun and I hope that you like the video.”

About the new album, guitarist/vocalist Mark Jansen comments: “I am very proud of this album, as I am convinced we have written a very refreshing and well-balanced album even after so many years of existence.

“Our strength is that we have many great songwriters in one band. We have managed to combine each other’s strongest qualities and select the best songs. It was a fruitful period of spending time together to work as one team on those tracks. I think this has made the biggest difference compared to our previous albums. Still using the advantages of comfortably sending files by the Internet to each other but combining that with coming physically together again to work on all the tracks.

“I think I have listened to ‘Omega’ about 50 times already and still can’t get enough of it!”
