Epica unveil “Abyss of TIme” music video, new album arriving in February

Posted by on October 9, 2020


Today is an excellent day for Epica fans as these Dutch symphonic metal titans have finally announced their new album, Omega, will be released on February 26th, 2021. The record was initially scheduled for a fall release date, but they were forced to push the date to early next year due to the ongoing pandemic. The follow-up to 2016’s The Holographic Principle is a continuation with their massive orchestration style, which you can hear in the video for the first single from the album with “Abyss Of Time.”


Vocalist Simone Simons comments on the new track:

“Finally we can show you the video for our newest single ‘Abyss Of Time’! We flew all the way to Poland to work with Grupa 13 for the first time. Shooting videos is one of my favorite parts of creating the visual side to our music. The costumes were insanely beautiful. It was so much fun and I hope that you like the video.” 


The group’s mastermind Mark Jansen adds:

“I am very proud of this album, as I am convinced we have written a very refreshing and well-balanced album even after so many years of existence. Our strength is that we have many great songwriters in one band. We have managed to combine each other’s strongest qualities and select the best songs. It was a fruitful period of spending time together to work as one team on those tracks. I think this has made the biggest difference compared to our previous albums. Still using the advantages of comfortably sending files by the internet to each other but combining that with coming physically together again to work on all the tracks. I think I have listened to ‘Omega about 50 times already and still can’t get enough of it!”
