EPICA | Reveal Second Trailer Discussing The Writing Process Of "Kingdom Of Heaven" And "Unleashed"


Epica Recently, Dutch metal titans EPICA have launched a lyric video for "Kingdom of Heaven" which is taken from the band’s upcoming re-release of Design Your Universe - Gold Edition. Today, the band have released the second album trailer, in which they once again share memories about the album, focusing on the stories behind the two classic EPICA tracks "Kingdom Of Heaven" and "Unleashed".

Also, watch the lyric video for "Kingdom Of Heaven" on the band’s YouTube channel: youtu.be/hFlgT4dny4k

Mark Jansen comments: “'Kingdom of Heaven' is very dear to me. This song was dedicated to my grandmother after she passed away. The lyrics are dealing with near-death experiences and the bridge between spirituality and science. Up until today it’s the EPICA song I’m most proud of and even though we cannot perform it that often live due to its length, we will perform it soon during the Design Your Universe 10th Anniversary shows. Enjoy this lyric video!”

Design Your Universe - Gold edition contains a remastered and remixed version of the album and a newly recorded acoustic bonus disc and will be released October 4th. The album and exclusive merchandise bundles are now available for pre-order now from: smarturl.it/epica
