Metalnews Power of Metal.dk


Dutch Symphonic Metal band EPICA has another milestone to their career. The band received the Music Export Award at this year’s edition of the Buma Rocks! The award is given to the Dutch metal act with the most international success in the past year.

Mark Jansen had the following to say about winning the awards:
We are honoured with this prestigious award, it's a big achievement after all those years of investing countless hours and much energy into EPICA. It shows that everything you do by following your heart will eventually pay off and will get acknowledged. Thanks to all our fans from all over the world!”

EPICA recently announced the first edition of their very own festival, EPIC METAL FEST.
The festival will take place on 22nd November at Klokgebouw in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.  The first edition of the festival will see EPICA headline and joined by our friends in ELUVEITIE, FEAR FACTORY (20th Anniversary Demanufacture Show), MOONSPELL, DELAIN and PERIPHERY, with more bands to be announced.

Tickets are on sale from Ticketmaster.

This fall, EPICA will tour North America and Europe in support of their current album »The Quantum Enigma«, which was released by Nuclear Blast in May 2014.
