EPICA launch 'Beyond The Matrix' music video!


Dutch symphonic metal band EPICA have launched the new music video for 'Beyond The Matrix' taken from the band’s latest album The Holographic Principle.

Frontwoman Simone Simons comments: 
“The energy that lives within 'Beyond the Matrix' is extremely contagious. It will sweep you off your feet when the melodies enter your mind. The video embodies the spirit and liveliness of EPICA. Transcend together with us and shine past the sky”

EPICA’s guitar player Mark Jansen continues
 “Beyond the Matrix is one of my favourite tracks to play live from our new album, as it makes the crowd go wild, so I'm happy we are releasing a video of it. We have managed to catch the energy of the song and translate it into images (& words). The song is dealing about us humans, being caught in a matrix (an illusion) because of our excessive thinking. We have lost control over our lives and accept the illusion as 'the one reality'. But if we manage to free ourselves from those shackles and become masters of our thoughts again, we can make a huge step forward in collective consciousness and will be able to look beyond the borders of our matrix. Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride!!!”

The video can be viewed on EPICA's official YouTube page: 

The video was produced by Jens de Vos and his team at Panda Productions.
