HILLS OF ROCK continues to add new names to its first edition. The new addition is EPICA, known for its symphonic metal sound. They will play on the first day of the festival. On the three scenes around the Rowing Canal in Plovdiv on 30.06 and 1.07. the fans of rock music will see the Evanescence and Guano Apes and 30 other artists and groups from Bulgaria and abroad.
Along with their biggest hits EPICA will present their new album “The Holographic Principle”, which according to music criticism is “their best work so far”. Coen Janssen shares, “We wanted this album to be filled with the best music we can do. We spent a lot of time preparing it and combining different instruments that we had never used before in our songs. We have incorporated brass, string, brass, ethno instruments and percussion to make the sound more lively and to achieve the effect we in the group call the ultimate EPICA sound. ”
The band was created in 2002 by vocalist and guitarist of After Forever Mark Jansen and includes: Simone Simons (vocal), Coen Janssen (synthesizer and piano), Arien Van Weesenbeek (drums), Isaac Delahaye (guitar), Rob Van Der Loo (bass guitar).
