New track/video:



Another great track! I always have high expectations from Epica and judging by the two tracks so far, they'll definitely deliver again!

Yep, great song, although Simone's vocals are a little subdued in places.

And of course it's nice to have an official video.

The new Epica album is excellent. A 72 min. album is a daunting task, but they've managed to keep the album well balanced and even kept some of the best stuff for the second half of the album - a clever move. So far, I feel like this album has more wow moments than the previous one, but only time will tell how it holds up.

The Holographic Principle is pretty damn awesome including the acoustic/alternate bonus tracks. The catchy nature of some of the songs is a plus.

Here's a nice little surprise to look forward to:

EPICA To Release 'The Solace System' EP In September

With their latest masterpiece, Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA set new standards. 2016's "The Holographic Principle" is the most epochal, multi-layered, courageous and successful record of the band, reaching top 10 chart position entries in the German, Dutch and Swiss album charts. Accordingly, all the tracks written for the album process are high quality, but not all songs have been put on the album. "This is only based on the fact that the record should not exceed 76 minutes," explains guitarist/vocalist Mark Jansen. Since the band didn't like the idea of a double CD, they finally decided to release an EP with six brand-new numbers, which were created during the creative phase of "The Holographic Principle".

"The Solace System" EP will be released on September 1 via Nuclear Blast.

The track listing is as follows:

01. The Solace System
02. Fight Your Demons
03. Architect Of Light
04. Wheel Of Destiny
05. Immortal Melancholy
06. Decoded Poetry

The EP title track:


This being Epica and the EP having 6 tracks, I expect this to be a lengthy EP. :bow:

Considering how many tracks were on the HP bonus disc, I'm surprised there were 6 tracks left. Though the acoustic version of Immortal Melancholy was included.

Still, this will be added to my collection as soon as possible. Thanks for posting this news.

Will definitely pick that EP up. I like when EP's are done like that rather than pre-album ones.

I like EP's that have more than one original track, or at least alternate versions of album tracks.

Leaves' Eyes always did good EP's.
