EPICA: New Video Interview With MARK JANSEN Available

May 14, 2008

Radio DJ Sheila Doki conducted an interview with EPICA guitarist Mark Jansen on April 27, 2008 in Ft. Worth, Texas prior to the band's show with SYMPHONY X. Among other things, Mark discusses his favorite songs to do live, his thoughts about MTV and the "music" played on it, what he feels makes EPICA different from other female-fronted metal bands, and how EPICA plans to continually get heavier.

The two-part video interview can be viewed below.

EPICA utilized the services of singer-songwriter and vocal coach Amanda Somerville as the stand-in vocalist for the band's North American tour with SYMPHONY X after the group's regular singer, Simone Simons, was infected with Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA),also known as the hospital bacteria.

EPICA will take part in a special concert dubbed "Classical Conspiracy" on June 14 at the Miskolc International Opera Festival in Hungary. The band will perform classical pieces from Mozart, Dvorak, Verdi, Orff, Prokofiev, Grieg, Vivaldi as well as symphonic versions of its own songs.
