“Excellence. Power. Intelligence. Creativity. Ambition.” Epica certainly encompasses all of these qualities, and this self-proclaimed acronym is once again proven to be true with the release of their seventh and latest studio album, ‘The Holographic Principle’. Heavy, delicate, and triumphant, Epica have once again created their trademark sound with ‘The Holographic Principle’, but with a historical battleground film score feel. To discuss the upcoming album, Metal Wani’s Editor In Chief Owais ‘Vitek’ Nabi had a chat with Epica vocalist Simone Simons.
She discusses upcoming new album “The Holographic Principle”, writing the ‘boldest’ Epica album till date, continuation of “The Quantum Enigma” story and pushing the boundaries by reinventing their distinctive style. She also talks about the vocals on the album, using various ethnic instruments live instead of samples, her take on fans using cellphones at concerts and upcoming North America tour. She throws light on second edition of Epic Metal Festival slated to happen in Tilburg, NL and Sao Paulo, Brazil in October.
