Next week, Dutch symphonic metal giants EPICA will release a cover EP for the highly successful “Attack On Titan” theme songs. With their legion of fans, ’Attack On Titan‘ have conquered both the print world with over 70 million copies, and anime sector with an adaption that is currently airing worldwide. The EP entitled EPICA VS. Attack On Titan features metal covers of the anime‘s theme songs and will be released worldwide – outside of Japan – on July 20th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Watch as guitarist Isaac Delahaye and keyboardist Coen Janssen discuss the challenges that went into adapting the music from the series
»EPICA vs. Attack On Titan« was recorded during the summer of 2017 at Sandlane Recording Facilities by Joost van den Broek. The original songs, which were influenced by the music of EPICA, were composed by Revo of popular Japanese band LINKED HORIZON. For the EP, the tracks were adapted by EPICA and produced by Joost van den Broek. The choir arrangements and scoring were completed by keyboardist Coen Janssen who also handled the orchestral arrangements with Joost van den Broek.
