Watch the clip here: Download the new single 'Universal Death Squad' here: Listen in NB Novelties playlist: "The first song we unleash upon you is "Universal Death Squad"," states guitarist and vocalist Mark Jansen. "This track is representative for "The Holographic Principle", as it's a heavy and melodic album. The lyrics are dealing about advanced robotic legions with a self-determination to kill. We have chosen for a different kind of lyric-video concept in which EPICA plays the track in a rehearsal room. The song is very much fun to play and I expect this one will do very well on stage. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did creating it!" In other news EPICA released their second album trailer.
