I actually heard about Epica almost by accident when I first heard their music and have been a staunch supporter since that time. When the band did their first ever US headlining tour we made sure to document the gig and also sit down and talk about their music, life in the band and dramatic membership changes with lead guitarist/founder Mark Jansen. We found some space right off the West Side Highway on the warm summer day and started chatting. To see the entire transcribed conversation just click their logo below to be taken to our item on the main PiercingMetal.com site.
Coverage of this particular show can be found on the main PiercingMetal.com site as well, and the amazing photos of Unexpect, The Agonist, Visions Of Atlantis and Epica were all done by Peter Parrella. Make sure you check that out as well, we’d love you to do so.
