As from today, Epica has entered the studio to begin the recordings of their follow up for “Requiem for the Indifferent”. After an extensive pre-production, Arien will begin tracking drums together with producer Joost van de Broek at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in the Netherlands.
Comments Mark: “We wrote about 18 new tracks for the album which we all will be recording. This puts us in a luxury position since we will be able to choose the best of these tracks for the album! So far the songs contain all known Epica elements, it is a balanced mix between old and new influences. We are extremely happy with all the material and can’t wait to put it out there!!”
This 6th, yet untitled, studio effort will be released by Nuclear Blast in spring next year. A special release show has already been announced to take place in 013, Tilburg (NL) on the 30th of April 2014.
