Epica Walk the “Edge of the Blade”

epica - the holographic principle

Epica have just released another single from their new album, The Holographic Principle; it’s called “Edge of the Blade,” and I think I like it even more than I did the record’s first single, “Universal Death Squad,” which was released in July. It’s just so catchy and… well… epic(a)! And keep in mind, I usually give zero, half a fuck tops about power metal, so the fact that these cats are two for two so far suggests that The Holographic Principle may be special. Special to Epica fans or special only to those of us who do not usually consider ourselves Epica fans, I dunno.

We’ll find out when The Holographic Principle materializes September 30 on Nuclear Blast! You can pre-order it here or here. ‘Til then, peep the “Edge of the Blade” video below, and then go to the comments section to discuss it. Do you dig it? Hate it? How do you feel it compares to other power metal? I’m curious to know what my fellow headbangers think!
