Simone Simons comments:
We are excited to present “Crimson Bow and Arrow”, the first song from our upcoming EP “Epica vs. Attack On Titan”. We hope you enjoy the unique track just as much as we did creating it!
“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.
