The band launch the second Studio Video Vlog which gives a behind the scene look at the of the drum recordings with Arien van Weesenbeek. VLOG: https://youtu.be/P8tbDNzOLSQ Arien comments: "In this episode, we’ll give you an insight in the drum recordings for our new album, and a little taste of what’s to come. I had a very good time during the recordings, had a good preperation for the drum parts, and played with a lot of power, energy, and conviction. I feel it’s a good and powerful foundation for the rest of the music, and I have a very good feeling that this album is gonna rock!!!" EPICA new album is scheduled for release this fall through Nuclear Blast Records. In support of this album the band will comprehensively tour Europe during the ‘Epic Apocalypse’ co-headline tour with APOCALYPTICA and support-act WHEEL.
