EPICA Release Performance Clip of “Unleashed” From “Retrospect DVD”

Friday, 11th October 2013

Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA celebrated their 10th anniversary on March 23 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands at a single night event, titled “Retrospect”. Accompanied by the seventy-piece Reményi Ede Chamber Orchestra and the Miskolc National Theatre Choir, the band played an unforgettable three-hour set. EPICA have released a clip taken from Retrospect which boasts the performance of “Unleashed”, the fourth fan favourite from the live DVD and can be viewed below.

Ten high-definition cameras captured the sold-out show while EPICA played in front of roughly five thousand fans. In addition to a collection of the band’s biggest hits from across the spectrum of their entire catalog, this once-in-a-lifetime spectacular also featured the live debut of “Twin Flames” and the previously unreleased Retrospect, covers of classics by Vivaldi, Pergolesi, and Oscar-winning film composer John Williams, two guest collaborations with the venerable Floor Jansen (NIGHTWISH, REVAMP), and a very special performance of their breakthrough single “Quietus” with founding members Jeroen Simons, Ad Sluijter and Yves Huts.

Nuclear Blast will release Retrospect on November 8 as a deluxe hardcover book with 48 pages, both as a 2DVD/3CD and 2Blu-ray/3CD version.
