Last December, Dutch symphonic metal giants EPICA surprised their fans with a very special covers EP release entitled, EPICA VS. Attack On Titan. The release, which was only available in Japan, featured metal versions of the theme songs from the highly successful manga series with 70 Million copies in print turned worldwide aired anime “Attack On Titan”. Today, the band announced the EP will be available outside Japan on July 20th via Nuclear Blast Records.
EPICA keyboardist Coen Janssen comments:
“The Attack on Titan EP is a project very close to my heart. More than ever I was involved in arranging and producing and I am very proud of the result! Very cool to see how these Japanese anime-songs turned into EPICA songs more and more every step of the way!!! I’m very excited that our Attack on Titan EP will be available outside of Japan!”
EPICA VS. Attack On Titan was recorded during the summer of July of 2017 at Sandlane Recording Facilities by Joost van den Broek. The original songs, which were influenced by the music of EPICA, were composed by Revo of popular Japanese band LINKED HORIZON. For the EP, tracks were adapted by EPICA and produced by Joost van den Broek. The choir arrangements and scoring were completed by keyboardist Coen Janssen who also handled the orchestral arrangements with Joost van den Broek.
