Epica Checks In From The Studio, Begins Vocal Recordings

Mark Jansen, the guitarist and co-vocalist of Dutch symphonic metal outfit Epica, has posted a message online in which he discusses the progress the band have made on their new studio album. His post reads as follows:

"The vocal recordings have started! Tonight I have recorded the grunts of the opening song of the upcoming album. After a travel of 4.5 hours Arien and I arrived in the studio at 22:00. We were still full of energy and decided to start recording already. Tomorrow, Simone will arrive as well so we'll continue with the vocal recordings.

"The recordings in general are going very well and the result sounds like we were hoping for. We know the pressure is quite high after Design Your Universe but we're confident that the new album will pay off the expectations."

"The new album will be released by Nuclear Blast on the March 9th, 2012. If you want to be the first to hear the new stuff be sure to get tickets to the release party in 013 (NL) on March 16th here."
