Dutch symphonic metal stars EPICA announced the release of their forthcoming record The Holographic Principle (September 30th through Nuclear Blast), two weeks ago. Now that the artwork has been revealed it is time for the band to announce the track list of this highly-awaited album. It racks up as follows:

 

  1. Eidola
  2. Edge Of The Blade
  3. A Phantasmic Parade
  4. Universal Death Squad
  5. Divide And Conquer
  6. Beyond The Matrix
  7. Once Upon A Nightmare
  8. The Cosmic Algorithm
  9. Ascension – Dream State Armageddon
  10. Dancing In A Hurricane
  11. Tear Down Your Walls
  12. The Holographic Principle – A Profound Understanding Of Reality

 

The band commented:

“The Holographic Principle deals with the near future wherein virtual reality has taken off and allows people to create their own virtual worlds which can’t be distinguished from “reality as we know it”. This raises the question whether our current reality is a kind of virtual reality on itself, a hologram. This implies the existence of a higher reality which we currently do not have access to. The lyrics challenge you to think out of the box, to reconsider everything you thought to know for sure and to be open-minded towards recent revolutions in science. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for a ride as nothing appears to be what it seems in our holographic universe.”

Holland’s greatest symphonic metal band, EPICA, have finally put the last touches on their new upcoming studio album entitled The Holographic Principle. Once again it’ll be released worldwide via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was produced with Joost van der Broek at Sandlane Recording Facilities. Mixing was handled by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, DESTRUCTION). The cover artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann (www.heilemania.de).

The band commented:
“Our highly anticipated seventh studio album is a fact. The Holographic Principle feels to us like a true treasure, created by us all with blood, sweat and tears of joy. In the past year we have worked very hard to write and record this special album. We are all very eager to share it with you! Join us on our new musical journey.”
