Epysode Unveils New Album "Fantasmagoria"

After months of announcements revealing guest appearances and teasers, Belgian based band Epysode has announced that the sophomore LP will be entitled "Fantasmagoria." The album drops on October 11th via AFM Records.

The successor to “Obsessions” was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen studio in Denmark. Beside band leader Samuel Arkan, the following vocalists and musicians have contributed to “Fantasmagoria”:

Tom S. Englund (Evergrey)
Henning Basse (Melium, Uli Jon Roth)
Ida Haukland (Triosphere)
Matt Marinelli (Borealis)
Tezzi Persson (Between The Silence)
Mike LePond (Symphony X)
Léo Margarit (Pain Of Salvation)
Julien Spreutels (Ethernity)
Simone Mularoni (DGM)

The unusual thing is that all these guests personally came to Noise Factory studio (Belgium) to record and track their own parts. As with many other projects, no one recorded his/her parts at home.

Arkan expalins: "I wanted the whole thing to get a real 'band' feeling, therefore having all vocalists and musicians here was very important to me. We got to know each other better and better while spending time together. The new material sounds very fresh, dark, heavy, modern and 'true' with 'straight in the face' guitar riffs, intense voices and melodies, massive work on progressive atmospheres and orchestral parts. All the artists who participated in this album gave their soul to it, gave their best, they travelled deeper into sensitivity and sincerity. That's probably the best words which define 'Fantasmagoria'... sincerity & spontaneity ! This album comes from the heart of each musician and vocalist who worked on it, and you can feel it when you listen to this new EPYSODE album.” More...
