Dutch symphonic metal giant EPICA recently have entered Sandlane Recording Facilities to record their new album and follow-up to the successful “The Holographic Principle”. The band will be recording again together with producer Joost van den Broek (POWERWOLF, AYREON). In the studio the band is joined by Panda Productions, who will record behind the scene footage of this recording process. The band just launched their first studio vlog on the band’s YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/JQECj9jbQ_U Simone Simons comments: "Welcome to the behind the scenes of the making of EPICA 8.
