Earlier today, EPICA’s Simone Simons and Isaac Delahaye took fans questions love on YouTube. The whole fan chat is available for viewing below:

Epica recently released a lyric video for ‘The Essence Of Silence,’ a track off The Quantum Enigma, due out in Europe on May 2nd, in the UK on May 5th, and on May 6th in North America via Nuclear Blast.

'The Essence Of Silence' is now available via iTunes and Amazon (using the widget at the bottom of the page).

A release show for The Quantum Enigma has been announced for April 30th in Tilburg, The Netherlands at Poppodium. INSOMNIUM are on the bill as special guests.

Tickets and special bundles are available at this location.

Where the 2013 Retrospect performance reflected on a decade as one of the leading bands in the symphonic metal scene, The Quantum Enigma marks the beginning of a new Epica: modern, heavy, and without compromises.

"More than any of our previous albums, this album is a group effort. The only goal we had in mind: creating the album that could lift EPICA up to the next level."

Together with upcoming producer Joost van den Broek, the sextet worked on The Quantum Enigma at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in the Netherlands. The album has been mixed by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HATESHPERE). "Every detail finds its way into a perfectly balanced mix, and makes EPICA sound raw and overwhelming.”

The album will be released in five different configurations:
