The dark progressive/power metal project EPYSODE returns with its sophomore album Fantasmagoria on October 11th.

The successor to “Obsessions” (2011) was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen at Hansen studio in Denmark (Volbeat, Pretty Maids, Amaranthe a.m.m.)

Beside band leader Samuel Arkan, the following vocalists and musicians contributed to “Fantasmagoria”:

Tom S. Englund (Evergrey)

Henning Basse (Melium, Uli Jon Roth)

Ida Haukland (Triosphere)

Matt Marinelli (Borealis)

Tezzi Persson (Between The Silence)

Mike LePond (Symphony X)

Léo Margarit (Pain Of Salvation)

Julien Spreutels (Ethernity)

Simone Mularoni (DGM)

The quite unusual thing is that all these guests came to the Noise Factory studio (Belgium) to track down their parts. Nobody recorded his/her parts at home, like with some many other projects.

“I wanted the whole thing to get a real “band” feeling”, Arkan says. “Therefore having all vocalists and musicians here was very important to me. We got to know each other better and better while spending time together. The new material sounds very fresh, dark, heavy, modern and “true” with “straight in the face” guitar riffs, intense voices and melodies, massive work on progressive atmospheres and orchestral parts. All the artists who participated in this album gave their soul to it, gave their best, they travelled deeper into sensitivity and sincerity. That’s probably the best words which define “Fantasmagoria”… sincerity & spontaneity ! This album comes from the heart of each musician and vocalist who worked on it, and you can feel it when you listen to this new EPYSODE album.”
