Ariën van Weesenbeek features on next Epica album

We are very happy to announce that Ariën van Weesenbeek will be the drummer on the next Epica album. For those who aren’t familiar with him yet, Ariën is the drummer of the Dutch death metal band God Dethroned (who btw have just released their new album The Toxic Touch, if you haven’t bought it yet you should do so tomorrow!)

Ariën is no stranger to Epica since he already worked together with Coen and Yves in Project Sic as well as with Ad on Delain’s debut album Lucidity.

For more info on Ariën, please check out God Dethroned’s website at:

Just for the record: Ariën’s contribution will only be limited to the cd, so we are still in search of a drummer of our own, for more info mail to
