EPICA RELEASE MUSIC VIDEO SECOND SINGLE + MUSIC VIDEO ‘FREEDOM – THE WOLVES WITHIN’! PLUS SET CHALLENGE FOR THE ADOPTION OF SIX GREY WOLVES FROM WORLD WILDLIFE FUND

Dutch symphonic metal giants EPICA recently announced the release of their new album Omega, out on February 26th 2021 via Nuclear Blast. Omega is the band’s first studio album in five years.

Last month, EPICA also revealed the first single and video clip from the album, titled ‘Abyss Of Time’, which was viewed on YouTube over a million times within its first week. Now EPICA release a music video for their second single ‘Freedom – The Wolves Within’.

Guitarist Mark Jansen comments: “This song is based on an old story of a fight between two wolves. A wise Cherokee is discussing life with his grandson: He tells the boy “There is a fight going on inside of me between two wolves.” One wolf is evil, he embodies anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other wolf is good, joyful, peaceful, and embodies love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. We all have the same fight going on inside of us and the outcome of this battle will reflect on the outer world. The boy gets curious and asks his grandfather which wolf will win? The old Cherokee simply answers “The one you feed the most.” What we want to be and what we want to reflect on the world around us depends on which wolf we feed and also the degree of control we have over our inner wolves. Will we manage to control them or will they control us?”

With this new single, the band and their label want to support a good cause and start a little challenge with the fans. Head over to this page to learn more and how you can take part: http://nblast.de/EpicaWolves

Three goals have been set on streaming platforms, and with each goal reached, Nuclear Blast will sponsor the symbolic adoption of 2 endangered grey wolves through the World Wildlife Fund, so that at the end of the game, each band member of EPICA will have adopted one animal. Not only do gray wolves suffer from steady habitat loss, they also have to endure revenge killings for attacks on wild stock, and the World Wildlife Fund depends on sponsorships and adoptions to conserve the natural habitat of these precious animals.
