Dutch symphonic giants EPICA recently announced the release of their new alum Omega, out on February 26th, 2021 via Nuclear Blast. Omega is the band’s first studio album in five years. This past Friday, the band released a music video for their mesmerising third single, the ballad Rivers.

“Our third single has arrived! ‘Rivers’ symbolizes the calmness and at the same time the uncertainty in life, the ebb and flow. The calm water represents peace, and a strong river stream means that you have to face challenges and swim against the tide of life”comments Simone Simons.
