Epica Reveals New Album Title As "Requiem For The Indifferent"

Dutch symphonic metal band Epica announced that the much anticipated follow up to the 2009 release "Design Your Universe" will be entitled "Requiem For The Indifferent." The album will be released on March 9, 2012 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The band explains the album's title: "This title refers to the end of an era. Mankind can no longer stick their head in the sand for the things that are happening around us. We are facing many challenges. There is an enormous tension between different religions and cultures, wars, natural disasters and a huge financial crisis, which is getting out of control. More than ever we will need each other to overcome these problems. As we are all connected; the universe, earth, nature, animals and human beings, this period in time will be the prelude to the end for those who still don't want to, or simply won't see it. A REQUIEM FOR THE INDIFFERENT but also a possibility for a new beginning with great new chances!"

The band's latest studio report post was as follows: "So far 5 songs have been mixed of the upcoming Epica album (RFTI), the remaining songs will be finished during the upcoming 1.5 week! we'll keep you posted!"
