On March 23 2013, Dutch symphonic metal band EPICA celebrated its 10th anniversary with a special concert dubbed »Retrospect«. During this evening the band was accompanied by the seventy piece Extended Reményi Ede Chamber Orchestra and the Miskolc National Theatre Choir, playing an unforgettable 3-hours best-of set.
Ten high-definition cameras captured this very special sold-out show. EPICA played in front of nearly five thousand ecstatic fans and performed the biggest hits from across the spectrum of their entire catalog.
Metal Hammer UK has launched the second song taken from the upcoming EPICA »Retrospect« release is now available to watch: http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/uncategorized/exclusive-epica-stream-retrospect-live-dvd-clip/
EPICA’s keyboard player Coen Janssen comments: “Retrospect is EPICA’s magnum opus! A show capturing the essence of the band, the music and our passion, shared with the best fans in the world! I can’t believe it has already been over ten years since we recorded ‘The Phantom Agony’ but the song still stands out as one of our favorites. Watching the show and remembering that night still gives me goosebumps!”
»Retrospect« will be released as a deluxe hardcover book with 36 pages, both as a 2DVD/3CD and 2Blu-ray/3CD version, on the 8th of November in Europe, Australia and South America and 26th November in North America through Nuclear Blast.
