Quote :
"This Is The Time", the new single from Dutch female-fronted symphonic metallers EPICA, will be released digitally on October 15. A video for the song, which was written for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), was filmed in March was in Hilversum, The Netherlands and can be viewed below.

For more than 45 years, WWF has been protecting the future of nature. The world's leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF's unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.

Commented EPICA: "The awareness that we should be more careful with the earth, increases every day. We should also try to live in closer harmony with nature. EPICA is lyric-wise strongly connected to these themes and would like to devote themselves to this cause for a better world!"

Added WWF's JŲrgen van Beem: "WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of our planet's natural environment, and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. A planet where people and nature can thrive together, in a stable environment, now, and for generations to come. For more than 40 years, WWF has been at the forefront in protecting the Amazon and are therefore enthusiastic that EPICA decided to raise funds for the Brazilian forest programs of WWF, which ensure conservation and sustainable development throughout the world's largest rainforest."

The new issue of Terrorizer magazine features an A3 poster of Simone Very Happy

As far as I know Epica posters are rare - I saw people selling the pic of her from the free Metal Hammer calendar on ebay Razz so I'll definitely be grabbing this one for my collection!

EDIT - More news!
The band will start recording the new album on Wednesday!
They will also be going on a world tour for the album, and you can vote for support bands on their facebook: https://www.facebook.com/epica

I've thought of one that is not a bad title and makes sense, but I can't imagine Epica calling an album that! Hmm :3

Epica and Yves part ways
It is with sadness that we announce that Yves Huts and Epica have decided to part ways. Yves has been with us from the start and has been of great value to the band. We want to thank Yves for his contribution to Epica's success and wish him the very best in his future career, whether musically or in a different way. We will never forget the good times we shared together on the road!!

"Hi everybody,

013 is the venue where we did our first show with Epica and, almost a decade later, also my last. I'm leaving the band because I have another career opportunity that is not combinable with the schedule of a world touring band. I've tried to live these two different lives simultaniously for as long as I could but in the end I just had to make a choice, one of the most difficult ones in my life. I look back to these 10 years in Epica satisfied and enriched with life experience. As a founding member I'm proud of what we've achieved so far and I'm sure the future has a lot more great things in store for the band.
I would like to thank the band, crew, fans and everybody else involved for the good times and I wish my successor good luck.

Those of you that might be interested in any possible future musical plans of mine can visit my artist page on facebook

Kind regards
Yves Huts"

The silver lining to this cloud is that we can already announce an awesome successor. Fulfilling duties on bass from now on will be none other than Rob van der Loo. You might know Rob from his work with MaYaN or Delain. We are sure that Rob will fit perfectly as a musician and as a person, and we are looking forward to share the stage for the first time next week.

"A few days ago I spoke to Yves and he brought back a memory from the time when Epica was still a support band for one of my former bands. At that time he would never have guessed that almost 10 years later I'd be his successor in Epica... Well, neither did I... but I'm damn proud of it!
I've been sharing the stage with the people from Epica for almost ten years now, and becoming a member of MaYaN last year brought us even closer. So making the decision to join Epica feels pretty good. Therefore I want to show my gratitude to the bandmembers (including Yves) and the crew for allowing me in the Epica family!

See you guys on the road! I won't let you down!

Does anyone have any idea what this other career is?

I'm not sure why but I really wasn't surprised at all. He always seemed like he was really angry to me so when I read this I just thought he'd got angry with them and quit! But I don't think that was the case Razz

Guess he has a bit of an "angry-look" over him, yeah. But I've talked to him a couple of times and he never seems to be angry. Just a really nice and relaxed person ^^.

I believe I red somewhere that he composes soundtrack music and works as a sound engineer/producer. Maybe that's the other carreer. Dunno for sure though..

I guess I was also influenced by hearing that he shouted at my friend once, lol. But at least he apologised afterwards.

EPICA Singer Hit In Face By Flying Drumstick

According to Musica Metal, EPICA singer Simone Simons was hit in the face by a flying drumstick that slipped out of drummer AriŽn van Weesenbeek's hands during the opening song of the band's April 17 concert at Alcatraz in Milan, Italy. Simone briefly left the stage to regain her composure before returning a few moments later to finish singing the track "Monopoly On Truth" with no problems and no apparent injuries.


action @ 6:40

Perfect timing from AriŽn Very Happy. It can really hurt though so happy for Simone she's ok.

I saw this! I doesn't look like it hits her,but rather flies across the front of her face.
At least she came back and performed at the end of the song.
