EPICA drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek shares the following about the single and the new album: “’The Essence Of Silence’ is a little taste of what’s yet to come, but this song raises the bar of EPICA’s music once again. Get ready to bang your head on some pounding heavy riffs. grooving drums, and a chorus that will stick in your head for a long time!”
EPICA recorded »The Quantum Enigma« with producer Joost van den Broek (REVAMP, AFTER FOREVER) at the Sandlane Recording Facilities in The Netherlands. The album has been mixed by Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, HATESPHERE). The artwork for »The Quantum Enigma« and ‘The Essence Of Silence’ single features the talents of longtime collaborator Stefan Heilemann.
