Last December, Dutch symphonic metal giants EPICA surprised their fans with a very special covers EP release entitled »EPICA vs. Attack On Titan Songs«. The release, which was only available in Japan, featured metal versions of the theme songs from the highly successful manga series with 70 million copies in print turned worldwide aired anime "Attack On Titan". On July 20th, the EP will be available outside of Japan worldwide via Nuclear Blast Records.
EPICA keyboardist Coen Janssen comments: “The »Attack on Titan Songs« EP is a project very close to my heart. More than ever I was involved in arranging and producing and I am very proud of the result! Very cool to see how these Japanese anime-songs turned into EPICA songs more and more every step of the way!!! I’m very excited that our »Attack on Titan Songs« EP will be available outside of Japan!"
»EPICA vs. Attack On Titan Songs« was recorded during the summer of 2017 at Sandlane Recording Facilities by Joost van den Broek. The original songs, which were influenced by the music of EPICA, were composed by Revo of popular Japanese band LINKED HORIZON. For the EP, the tracks were adapted by EPICA and produced by Joost van den Broek. The choir arrangements and scoring were completed by keyboardist Coen Janssen who also handled the orchestral arrangements with Joost van den Broek.
