Epica Has Eleven New Tracks For An Unnamed New LP

Hot on the heels of its March 2012 release of "Requiem for the Indifferent" (see Metal Underground.com's review here), Dutch symphonic metal band Epica is currently writing new material as the band prepares to invade North America this fall, including a headline performance at ProgPower USA on Friday, September 14, 2012.

In a post on its Facebook Page, the band added: "Already about 11 new tracks have been written for the next album. We don't know yet when we'll record it (somewhere in 2013) but this material sounds killer so far! Wouldn't be surprised if many people gonna like those songs."
