Last month, Dutch symphonic metal titans Epica celebrated their 1000th show Anniversary at 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands on April 14th. The event sold out and 3000 fans were in attendance. For those who were unable to join the party, Epica have premiered a music video for “Universal Love Squad,” which is the acoustic version of “Universal Death Squad,” taken from 2016’s The Holographic Principle.
The group’s founder/guitarist Mark Jansen commented:
“At the 1000th show we performed for the first time ever the acoustic version of ‘Universal Death Squad’ which became ‘Universal Love Squad’.
As many fans kept asking us to play something acoustic live, we couldn’t resist any longer. We want to thank our fans from all over the world for all these fantastic shows and hopefully there will be a 1000 more to come! :)”
