Today, Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA will release their 6th studio effort »The Quantum Enigma« (May 5th, UK and May 13th, USA) through Nuclear Blast. Where the 2013 »Retrospect« performance reflected on a decade as one of the leading bands in the symphonic metal scene »The Quantum Enigma« marks the beginning of a new EPICA: modern, heavy, and without compromises. "More than any of our previous albums, this album is a group effort. The only goal we had in mind: creating the album that could lift EPICA up to the next level." Together with upcoming producer Joost van den Broek, the sextet worked on »The Quantum Enigma« at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in the Netherlands.
