Dutch symphonic metal act Epica has been uploading teasers of the new song “Monopoly On Truth” over the past weeks, adding a new layer of music with each upload. Now the final layer has been added and the complete song can be heard in the video below. “Monopoly On Truth” comes off Epica’s new effort Requiem for the Indifferent, to be released on March 9th in Europe and March 13th in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band posted the following message on their website: “For the past seven weeks we’ve tried to tease you to death with our unique layer-by-layer teaser concept. But this has come to an end now… next week you will all have a copy of Requiem For The Indifferent in your hands or will be playing it continuously in your CD-player! So to live through another week we’ll give you the whole opening song “Monopoly On Truth”. You already heard drums, bass, guitars, keys, choirs and vocals but still there is something more we have to offer and that is the great guitar-solo of Isaac Delahaye! Enjoy!”
