EPICA – release video for acoustic version of their single ‘Abyss Of Time’!

Dutch symphonic metal giants EPICA recently announced the release of their new album “Omega”, out on February 26th 2021 via Nuclear Blast“Omega” is the band’s first studio album in five years. Last month, EPICA also revealed the first single and video clip from the album, titled ‘Abyss Of Time’, which was viewed on YouTube over a million times within its first week. Today, the band reveal a video for an acoustic version of that single.

Watch the clip here: https://youtu.be/tpy-KdtLsZY

Keyboarder Coen Janssen comments: “For the Omega release we rewrote 4 songs into acoustic versions. This is our way of relaxing after a period of working hard and intense on heavy music. Being able to wind down and see if the songs still ‘work’ without all the bombast feels like coming home. It also enables us to explore other musical styles than metal and challenges us to be creative in a different way than we are used to. Enjoy our first single “Abyss of Time” as if it was played in an Irish Pub while enjoying a nice pint with all your friends!!” 


‘Freedom – The Wolves Within’ OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO: https://youtu.be/nWNdykQY6yQ

With the new single ‘Freedom – The Wolves Within’, the band and their label want to support a good cause and started a little challenge with the fans.

Three goals have been reached on streaming platforms, and with each goal, Nuclear Blast sponsored the symbolic adoption of 2 endangered grey wolves through the World Wildlife Fund, so that at the end of the game, each band member of EPICA has adopted one animal. Not only do gray wolves suffer from steady habitat loss, they also have to endure revenge killings for attacks on wild stock, and the World Wildlife Fund depends on sponsorships and adoptions to conserve the natural habitat of these precious animals.
