EPICA Seeking Fan Input On Special Edition Of Forthcoming Album


Dutch symphonic metal band, EPICA, posted the following update:


“We have a question to our fans. Nuclear Blast has asked us what we think of the idea to create a special edition of the new album, Requiem For The Indifferent, with a bonus CD containing orchestral versions of the songs. Our labelmates NIGHTWISH have done this as well. If you guys like this idea we’ll make it happen.”

Epica will release their new album, Requiem For The Indifferent, in Europe via Nuclear Blast on March 9th, 2012. The album will be released in North America on March 13th, 2012. Producer Sascha Paeth mixed the album at Gate Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany.


Says the band: “This title refers to the end of an era. Mankind can no longer stick their head in the sand for the things that are happening around us. We are facing many challenges. There is an enormous tension between different religions and cultures, wars, natural disasters and a huge financial crisis, which is getting out of control. More than ever we will need each other to overcome these problems. As we are all connected; the universe, earth, nature, animals and human beings, this period in time will be the prelude to the end for those who still don’t want to, or simply won’t see it. A Requiem For The Indifferent but also a possibility for a new beginning with great new chances!”
