Epica: a plea for public awareness


Through their new album, Requiem For The Indifferent, Epica make a plea for public awareness in terms of our planet’s economic and environmental issues. According to vocalist Simone Simons, mankind ignores those issues, voluntarily or not, and people live their lives in a very selfish way. When we broached these subjects during the following interview, we naturally drifted to more current affairs; in other words: the debate on downloading caused by the recent closing down of Megaupload. Simone’s position on the matter is firm: if a nation is economically stable, given how easy it can be to access music legally on the Internet, downloading is a no-no.

On a more musical front, we talked about the impact their previous album, Design Your Universe, had on the band’s music – a subject Mark Jansen already insisted upon a year ago. Simone can only concur: with this record, the band have established a standard that will be used as a foundation for all future productions, including this new album, Requiem For The Indifferent.
