This time however we’re doing it like no one has done before, by weekly releasing an extra layer of music, giving our fans a little more insight in the complexity and the different aspects of Epica’s music.

As this is the first video in the series, you’ll only hear Arien’s drums. However, the next 7 weeks we will add layer by layer, and make the sample longer and longer.

The band explains the album title:

This title refers to the end of an era. Mankind can no longer stick their head in the sand for the things that are happening around us. We are facing many challenges. There is an enormous tension between different religions and cultures, wars, natural disasters and a huge financial crisis, which is getting out of control. More than ever we will need each other to overcome these problems. As we are all connected; the universe, earth, nature, animals and human beings, this period in time will be the prelude to the end for those who still don’t want to, or simply won’t see it. A Requiem For The Indifferent but also a possibility for a new beginning with great new chances!

The new album will be released March  16th, 2012 Nuclear Blast.
