Epica´s first single off their seventh studio album 'The Holographic Principle' is named 'Universal Death Squad' and it was released earlier today. More than six minutes long song stars off with a gentle piano melody going along with soothing strings.
However, soon after that the single evolves into a heavy track with killer guitar riffs, furious drums, epic orchestrations and choirs characteristic for Dutch symphonic metallers´ sound. These are followed by Simone Simons´ spectacular vocals and a catchy chorus, accompanied by Mark Jansen´s uncompromising growling in the second half of the song. There´s even a guitar solo at the end and yes, everything is just massive and huge.
'The Holographic Principle' will be released on September 30. Pre-order it in various formats here:
