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 the UK on May 5th via Nuclear Blast.
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!”
