2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Symphonic Metal titans Epica. After nearly 1 million albums sold worldwide and over 300 million combined streams on all digital platforms, the Dutch combo has manifested their talent to combine metal with unique operatic vocals and has gained a huge international fanbase after performing over 1.000 shows in more than 60 countries on all continents. With their latest musical output “Omega”, the band reached the Album Top 5 charts of several countries such as Germany and Switzerland, but now they take a big step into their past.

Now, Epicare-issue their first three albums “The Phantom Agony”, “Consign To Oblivion” and “The Score”, which have become milestones of the genre and rarities on the physical market. Now they come with previously unreleased bonus tracks on each album. As special surprise, the band dug up some spectacular hidden gems from their early career that will be available as bonus material on some of the formats.

“Live At Paradiso” - Initially recorded in 2006 at the beautiful “Paradiso” in Amsterdam, the concert not only revives the memories from a young band who had just freshly released their two first albums including some evergreen hits like ‘Cry For The Moon’ or ‘Solitary Ground’, but has even become shrouded in legends. Often scheduled for release, this DVD and audio recording somehow never managed to see the light of day and has almost become the ‘holy grail’ for some of EPICA’s old school fans.

“We Will Take You With Us”

Recorded at the ‘Twe Meter Sessies’ on public Dutch TV, most hardcore fans will be familiar with this release that was the band’s first major performance on television and first DVD release that has long been sold out. As very special rarity, you can also discover two demo recordings from SAHARA DUST – the band that should later become EPICA (and can actually be seen live for the very first time at EPICA’s already sold out anniversary show in Tilburg!).
