Epica announce a book release

Following Lacuna Coil and their upcoming book “Nothing Stands In Our Way”, symphonic metallers Epica have announced a release of their own publication. “The Essence Of Epica” is the name of the band’s first official book in which they will look back at their 15 years long career.

The unique book tells the story of the remarkable musical journey of Epica in their own words. It’s illustrated with rare, candid and classic photographs. “The Essence of Epica” contains first-person testimony from Simone, Mark, Coen, Ariën, Isaac and Rob along with that of former members, friends and colleagues of the band. The story of Epica’s rise from Dutch newcomers to international symphonic metal giants is described in majestic and mesmerising style in this official, exclusive book.
