Epica (ft. Charlotte Wessels & Myrkur): 'Sirens - Of Blood And Water'

Epica - 'The Alchemy Project'
Είκοσι χρόνια μουσικής ύπαρξης (αν συνυπολογίσουμε και τα πρώτα βήματα της μπάντας ως Sahara Dust) συμπλήρωσαν φέτος οι Epica και το γιορτάζουν με ep επτά νεών τραγουδιών υπό τον τίτλο "The Alchemy Project". Συμμετέχει (πέραν των μελών της μπάντας) μία πλειάδα εκλεκτών καλεσμένων τραγουδιστών.

Οι Epica "υπάρχουν" στο μουσικό σύμπαν από τις αρχές της χιλιετίας. Σχηματίσθηκαν από τον Mark Jansen το 2002 όταν αποχώρησε από τους After Forever. Αρχικά (για έναν χρόνο) ως Sahara Dust (με την Helena Iren Michaelsen στα φωνητικά) και στην συνέχεια ως Epica. Το όνομα της μπάντας είναι εμπνευσμένο από τον σχετικό δίσκο των Kamelot ("Epica", Ιανουάριος 2003)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The cat is finally out of the bag: On November 11, we’re releasing seven brand new songs to conclude our 20th Anniversary year! This mini-album named, ‘The Alchemy Project’ is a very diverse release, with each track taking on the flavour of the internationally renowned guest musician(s) with whom each was written and recorded.

This resulted in a release that challenges and expands on what Epica is, while maintaining our trademark sound. Beyond the symphonic hymns you’re used to, you’ll also find progressive melodic death moments, saxophone solos, haunting lullabies with a trio of female voices - and even the heaviest death metal track we’ve ever recorded!»
