EPICA vs METROPOLE ORKEST | Launch teaser for ‘Beyond The Matrix – The Battle’ 03/10/2018 15 EPICA VS METROPOLE ORKEST | LAUNCH TEASER FOR ‘BEYOND THE MATRIX – THE BATTLE’ Metal giants EPICA have launched a short teaser from their upcoming release ‘Beyond The Matrix – The Battle’ – a unique collaboration with the Dutch Grammy-award winning METROPOLE ORKEST. In the summer of 2017, with the help from their massive fan base, EPICA won a high-profile competition organized by the METROPOLE ORKEST. First prize was a recording of a song of their choice with the orchestra. In between EPICA‘s heavy touring schedule, the band was able to conjure up a unique, never-before-seen ‘Big Band meets Symphonic Metal’ rendition of ‘Beyond the Matrix’. As a bonus to all voters, runner-up in the competition and friend of the band, Arjen Lucassen (AYREON) contributed a beautiful guest-solo to the song. Simone Simons comments: “The short teaser of ‘Beyond The Matrix – The Battle’ gives you a small preview of our upcoming release. Never before did we have such a unique collaboration as with the METROPOLE ORKEST. Expect to be blown away, literally and figuratively!” Watch the teaser here: https://youtu.be/R8DjQ8bOdLg EPICA vs METROPOLE ORKEST – ‘Beyond The Matrix – The Battle’ will be released as a limited-edition vinyl and digital download on October 26th through Nuclear Blast.
