Dutch symphonic metal stars EPICA grant a little insight into the making of their forthcoming album, ‘The Holographic Principle‘ with a first trailer from the studio. In this brand new clip, the band explains their songwriting process as well as offering a few musical surprises.
Guitarist Isaac Delahaye explains: “Halfway through 2015, Epica started a new journey: writing and recording the 7th studio album “The Holographic Principle“. “In between touring we spent our time in the Sandlane Recording Facilities with producer Joost van den Broek and here’s the first part of our studio documentary! It gives you a little insight into the creation of what we see as our most complete album ever. You’ll hear rough snippets of new music, and you’ll see how we built things up. Enjoy!”
