EPICA Guitarist Mark Jansen in a recent conversation told about the process of working on new material:

"At the moment we're still collecting ideas, and the decision about going or not going to be on the album, will be taken in November/December. So we will have time to think and decide".

Such a long time period is explained simply:

"this week will mark three years since the release of "The Holographic Principle", so that when the next album will come, will be four years. It's more than usual, but it is worth considering that we already released one EP, then another, and jubilee release, plus be more book — we are almost to the end of the year it needs to go. So between the discs we have released enough of everything. But if you only look at the albums, then Yes — pause more than usual. So I think the fans have been waiting for new material. Exactly like we have missed work.

When I started writing, I had an incredible sense of motivation. And this is exactly what you need. We don't want to start to write an album when we really only have the feeling that we have to write and release a new record. We just want the writing began and when we are hungry for this work. So, options or not: either on full blast or nothing. No intermediate stage. I'm not happy with the album, which will be a few good songs and the rest will be empty. I would be ashamed of that record. Nobody would be happy with this disc. So it needs to be as good as what we usually do." #Epica #GothicMetal #Gothic_Metal #PowerMetal #Power_Metal #SymphonicMetal #Symphonic_Metal
