Epica werkt momenteel aan het achtste album in de Sandlane Recording Facilities. Geregeld nemen ze ons mee in het opnameproces. Vandaag is te zien hoe toetsenist Coen Janssen en bassist Rob van der Loo, samen met producer Joost van den Broek naar Praag zijn afgereisd om samen met de City of Prague Symphonic Orchestra op te nemen.

Coen Janssen zegt hierover: “Yes! It finally happened!! We recorded our new album with a full symphonic orchestra!!!  Of course this has been a life-long dream of ours and this time it was the next logical step to take to enhance our sound. So we spend 3 awesome days in the beautiful city of Prague to record with the well-known City of Prague Symphonic Orchestra, and boy are you in for a treat!!! I am sure the orchestra adds a new layer and depth to our sound and I am beyond excited for everyone to hear it!!’”
