To coincide with Epica’s 10th anniversary Retrospect show, taking place on the 23rd of March in the Netherlands, Epica’s former record label Transmission Records will release an expanded edition of Epica’s debut album The Phantom Agony.
This expanded edition comes in a deluxe digipack and contains 15 bonus tracks, including 7 previously unreleased versions and 1 previously unreleased song. The 20 pages thick booklet will provide unique photos and memorabilia, plus liner notes by founder Mark Jansen.
“We have put aside our differences ‘cause at the end of the day, both parties want to have the debut album available to the Epica fans as it has been out of print for more than five years!”
For the first time ever the album will also be released on double vinyl! It will be pressed on high quality 180 gram audiophile vinyl and put in a 350 gram cardboard gatefold sleeve including all lyrics. Besides the regular album, this release contains 6 bonus tracks.
You can pre-order the double CD, double Vinyl and exclusive bundles with a limited edition T-shirt.
