AMSTERDAM - Epica is a known player in the gothic metal scene. NU.nl spoke with singer Simone Simons on the new album Design Your Universe and the addition of a new guitarist to the band.

Your new album comes out in October. How do you describe the album as a singer?
"This album was more extreme in every sense than all our previous albums, in a good way. All elements are strengthened, the instruments are more forward, it is much more groovy and we have a new guitarist. "

Tell me more about your new guitarist, Isaac Delahaye. Has been added impact on your sound?
Yes. It is very difficult as a band member leaves. The old guitarist (Ad Sluijter, ed) is gone, but we live with. We have no quarrel broke up, seven years together as your lifts go together like family. It is a lifestyle.

The new guitarist Isaac had to be some thought when we asked him, because he is a fulltime job. We asked him to listen to our songs and improve on the points which he thought necessary. That improvement is good to hear on the album. Isaac inspires us because he has a fresh look at things. "

White Waters for the song you have worked with Tony Kakko. Who is he exactly?
"Yes, that's funny. Tony is a friend of mine and he is Finnish. I always laugh at the way people pronounce his name! We have toured together, and we both felt we were entering a collaboration. White Waters on this album was the most appropriate song for him. "

What is your favorite track on the album?
"That's Unleashed, the single.. It is the most catchy song on the album, which I myself wrote the text. It is about an old man who is dissatisfied with his life, but doing nothing and hope for the afterlife. The melodies are ridiculously cool and every time I hear myself sing along to. "

Are there artists that you would like to collaborate?
"It is totally not in our alley, but I think Lady Gaga great. I know all her songs and I really like her so special and eccentric. I would not dare raise her clothes. In the village where I live (in Germany), I'm already cranky enough with my red hair.

Lady Gaga is a good live singer. She was playing with Paul de Leeuw Pokerface on the piano, which sounded really good. She has a great performance, a real stage animal. "

You are internationally known. What action is engraved in your memory?
"That action was in Mexico last year. It was not necessarily a great performance, but I will certainly never forget. The Mexican fans were very sweet and she threw all the time presents on stage. Someone threw a crystal necklace at my face, which ended just below my eye. I had a knock-out and the show was temporarily stopped.

In an open space you can feel unsafe, as there are people that you can do to anything. It occurred to me at that moment: "I only had a bubble around me. I was happy just a thick eye on the action. "

What can we expect from Epica?
We just have a video recorded in Berlin, it is well within two weeks from. It was a great new experience, acting for a camera is different when doing a performance on stage. I am embarrassed when a video camera soon involved in them. You need professional reception and not shoot out laughing, which I find difficult.

In October we start our tour through Europe, we in South America in December and in February we will visit North America. On October 10th we play at Paradiso for the first time the entire plate. This concert is almost sold out.It is for us every time a party to play in Paradiso.
