Album: Requiem For The Indifferent
Label: Nuclear Blast
Release: March 09, 2012
Last weekend we had the pleasure to receive the new work of the mega-band EPICA, we refer to “Requiem For The Indifferent”, their fifth full-length.
Before it, the month of January we get an interview with “Coen Janssen”, keyboard of the band (see this link HERE) and he leave us with the honey in the lips, because he revealed us the apocalyptic concept of this work and from there we make a terrible anxiety to listen to Requiem For The Indifferent.
Now already in our hands, we can give faith of it, an exquisite work that alone these masters of the symphonic metal could offer. The passages for the progressive metal, are a constant in this album. Full with epic orchestrations, significant lyrics, powerful guitar riffing alternated with cinematic interludes, Simone Simons’ angelic voice, in short we can continue enumerating more details, with such talents gathered to achieve this production.
Requiem For The Indifferent is the sample that this sextet is in constant renovation search.
The album title refers to the end of an era. Mankind can no longer stick their head in the sand for the things that are happening around us: tensions between different religions and cultures, wars, natural disasters, a huge financial crisis. As we are all connected; the universe, the earth, nature, animals and human beings, this period in time will be the prelude to the end for those who still don’t want to, or simply won’t see it. A requiem for the indifferent but also a possibility for a new beginning with great new chances.
