  14. EPICA - »The Quantum Enigma« details revealed

    Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA will release their 6th studio effort »The Quantum Enigma« on May 2nd (Europe), 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 upcoming 6th studio album »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. The album has been mixed by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HATESHPERE). "Every detail finds its way into a perfectly balanced mix, and makes EPICA sound raw and overwhelming.” The album will be released in five different configurations: 01 - regular Jewel Case 02 - 2CD Digipack 03 - 3CD Earbook 04 - double Vinyl 05 - Digital Download Tracklisting »The Quantum Enigma«: 01 - Originem 02 - The Second Stone 03 - The Essence of Silence 04 - Victims of Contingency 05 - Sense Without Sanity [The Impervious Code] 06 - Unchain Utopia 07 - The Fifth Guardian [Interlude] 08 - Chemical Insomnia 09 - Reverence [Living in the Heart] 10 - Omen [The Ghoulish Malady] 11 - Canvas of Life 12 - Natural Corruption 13 - The Quantum Enigma [Kingdom of Heaven part II ] Digipack additional track: In All Conscience Earbook additional track: Dreamscape Vinyl additional track: Memento iTunes additional track: Banish Your Illusion Disc 2 (Digipack and Earbook only): 01 - Canvas of Life [acoustic version] 02 - In All Conscience [acoustic version] 03 - Dreamscape [acoustic version] 04 - Natural Corruption [acoustic version] Disc 3 (Earbook Only): 01 - Originem [instrumental] 02 - The Second Stone [instrumental] 03 - The Essence of Silence [instrumental] 04 - Victims of Contingency [instrumental] 05 - Sense Without Sanity [instrumental] 06 - Unchain Utopia [instrumental] 07 - The Fifth Guardian [instrumental] 08 - Chemical Insomnia [instrumental] 09 - Reverence [instrumental] 10 - Omen [instrumental] 11 - Canvas of Life [instrumental] 12 - Natural Corruption [instrumental] 13 - The Quantum Enigma [instrumental] Longtime collaborator Stephan Heilemann once again created some stunning artwork to accompany the ideas behind the lyrics. Once you'll be able to lay hands on the album artwork, you'll see that the cover is part of a bigger picture. The band will return to the stage after almost a year of absence during which they focussed on recording the career-defining »The Quantum Enigma«.

Ten high-definition cameras captured this very special sold-out show. EPICA played in front of nearly five thousand ecstatic fans and performed the biggest hits from across the spectrum of their entire catalog. The third clip of »Retrospect« is online now. You can view the song ‘Martyr Of The Free Word’ online at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZukHI1v6PY&feature=youtu.be EPICA’s guitar player Isaac Delahaye comments: "This is one of my favorite tracks to play live: starting fast and furious, going into a groovy verse, giving the choir a pole position in the bridge. Awesome. We're very happy that this great show is now officially out on DVD and Blu-ray, and that we can share this with all of our fans. We're already working hard on the new studio album, but this »Retrospect« release reminds us of the great times we've lived so far.
