Epica release new music video for ‘Beyond The Matrix’

Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA have released a brand new music video!

With the band still supporting their latest opus, last year’s The Holographic Principle, the band have now released a brand new music video for Beyond The Matrix. Speaking about the track, guitarist Mark Jansen says, Beyond the Matrix is one of my favourite tracks to play live from our new album, as it makes the crowd go wild, so I’m happy we are releasing a video of it. We have managed to catch the energy of the song and translate it into images (& words). The song is dealing about us humans, being caught in a matrix (an illusion) because of our excessive thinking. We have lost control over our lives and accept the illusion as ‘the one reality’. But if we manage to free ourselves from those shackles and become masters of our thoughts again, we can make a huge step forward in collective consciousness and will be able to look beyond the borders of our matrix. Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the ride!!!”
