Epica - 'Retrospect' Release Detailed

Dutch symphonic metal band Epica celebrated their 10th anniversary with a one-night-only event dubbed Retrospect. The band was accompanied by the seventy piece Extended Reményi Ede Chamber Orchestra and the Choir of Miskolc National Theatre, playing a 3-hours best-of set in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, this past March. Today, the band has unveiled the cover, tracklist and release date of Retrospect. On November 8th, Nuclear Blast will release it as a deluxe hardcover book with 48 pages both as a 2DVD/3CD and 2Blu-ray/3CD version.

Ten high definition cameras captured this very special sold-out show while Epica played in front of nearly five thousand fans. In addition to a collection of the band's hits from across the spectrum of their entire catalog, it also features the live debut of "Twin Flames" and the previously unreleased "Retrospect", covers of classics by Vivaldi, Pergolesi, and Oscar-winning film composer John Williams, two guest collaborations with Floor Jansen (Nightwish, ReVamp), and a very special performance of their single "Quietus", with founding members Jeroen Simons, Ad Sluijter, and Yves Huts.

Retrospect features this performance in its entirety, as well as exclusive interviews with all band members and behind-the-scenes footage from the show.

Want it. Seen them live a couple of times, always excellent.
Just because you believe in your strong morals it doesn't mean they are correct

I would have liked to see them do The Embrace That Smothers or A New Age Dawns in it's entirety. Small complaint though. This is still a very good set-list and I'm sure a great sounding performance.
