“During the quarantine of 2020 I spent long, lonely days with my hand down my pants, hiding out in a fortress made entirely of rolls of toilet paper, drinking hand sanitizer and watching ‘1000-Lb Sisters’… which is business as usual for me. So I was relieved when I got the call to lay down some vocals on ‘The Disc With No Name.’ We recorded this record over the telephone, which was fine with me, because I can’t stand to be in the same room as the other members of GWAR.”

“It’s always a lot of fun to work on acoustic versions of new songs. For this one, I stripped down the title song of our upcoming album and wanted to give it an uplifting country vibe. Also, it’s the first time we are releasing an acoustic version before the actual album version. I absolutely can’t wait for you to discover the original. Hang on, the 26th is coming!”

Epica have premiered a new video for a new acoustic version of “Abyss Of Time,” which they are calling “Abyss O’Time.” The original version of the song, which can be found HERE, will appear on the band’s new album “Omega,” which is set to be released on February 26. Coen Janssen commented:
“For the Omega release we rewrote 4 songs into acoustic versions. This is our way of relaxing after a period of working hard and intense on heavy music. Being able to wind down and see if the songs still ‘work’ without all the bombast feels like coming home. It also enables us to explore other musical styles than metal and challenges us to be creative in a different way than we are used to. Enjoy our first single ‘Abyss of Time’ as if it was played in an Irish Pub while enjoying a nice pint with all your friends!!”

We bring you the “The Colors of Grace” an acoustic session with Hendyamps Studio.”
