Dutch symphonic metal stars Epica announced the release of their forthcoming record 'The Holographic Principle' (September 30th via Nuclear Blast), two weeks ago. Now the artwork has been revealed it is time for the band to announce the track-listing of this highly-awaited album. It racks up as follows:
The band commented:
"The Holographic Principle deals with the near future wherein virtual reality has taken off and allows people to create their own virtual worlds which can't be distinguished from "reality as we know it". This raises the question whether our current reality is a kind of virtual reality on itself, a hologram. This implies the existence of a higher reality which we currently do not have access to. The lyrics challenge you to think out of the box, to reconsider everything you thought to know for sure and to be open-minded towards recent revolutions in science. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for a ride as nothing appears to be what it seems in our holographic universe."
