Epica Reveal “The Holographic Principle” Track Listing

Epica have revealed the track listing for their new album, “The Holographic Principle.” The effort will be released on September 30.


“The Holographic Principle” track listing:

01. “Eidola”
02. “Edge Of The Blade”
03. “A Phantasmic Parade”
04. “Universal Death Squad”
05. “Divide And Conquer”
06. “Beyond The Matrix”
07. “Once Upon A Nightmare”
08. “The Cosmic Algorithm”
09. “Ascension – Dream State Armageddon”
10. “Dancing In A Hurricane”
11. “Tear Down Your Walls”
12. “The Holographic Principle – A Profound Understanding Of Reality”

The band also commented on the album:

“‘The Holographic Principle’ deals with the near future wherein virtual reality has taken off and allows people to create their own virtual worlds which can’t be distinguished from ‘reality as we know it.’ This raises the question whether our current reality is a kind of virtual reality on itself, a hologram. This implies the existence of a higher reality which we currently do not have access to. The lyrics challenge you to think out of the box, to reconsider everything you thought to know for sure and to be open-minded towards recent revolutions in science. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for a ride as nothing appears to be what it seems in our holographic universe.”
