Dutch symphonic metal giant EPICA recently entered Sandlane Recording Facilities to record their eighth album.
 
In March, keyboard player Coen Janssen and bass player Rob van der Loo, together with producer Joost van den Broek, travelled to Prague to record with the renowned “City of Prague Symphonic Orchestra”.
 
In the fifth Studio Vlog episode, you will get a behind-the-scenes look at these recording sessions. VLOG #5 is here.
 
Coen Janssen comments: “Yes! It finally happened!! We recorded our new album with a full symphonic orchestra!!!  Of course this has been a life-long dream of ours and this time it was the next logical step to take to enhance our sound. So we spend 3 awesome days in the beautiful city of Prague to record with the well-known City of Prague Symphonic Orchestra, and boy are you in for a treat!!! I am sure the orchestra adds a new layer and depth to our sound and I am beyond excited for everyone to hear it!!’”
 
EPICA new album is scheduled for release this fall through Nuclear Blast Records.  In support of this album the band will comprehensively tour Europe during the “Epic Apocalypse” co-headline tour with APOCALYPTICA and support-act WHEEL.
