As you know, we had the chance to see Epica live just over a week ago at the onset of their North American tour in support of their new album The Holographic Principle. And with this album they have something to truly be proud of. It’s an evolutionary step for the band as it’s heavier and somehow more melodic and musical, if you can imagine, than previous works.

We were lucky enough to sit down and talk about such things as the band’s evolution with frontwoman Simone Simons, who was ever so gracious with us. And her natural beauty and gentle, almost shy way, was a stark contrast to the catacombs, aka, dressing rooms, under the venue.
Among the other topics were Rob van der Loo’s contribution since joining the band, the significance of The Holographic Principle’s cover art, the theme of the album, the cinematic vibe, influences, and more.
