EPICA‘s Coen Janssen (keys) comments: "It has been a great pleasure working with the talented Davide Cilloni on this unique video trilogy. In this final part we finally find out what will happen to our dimension and if the Universal Death Squad will conquer our planet... let‘s hope for the best!! I hope you enjoy this last part as much as I have enjoyed seeing myself as a cartoon haha!"
This Thursday, EPICA will kick off The Ultimate Principle Tour - Latin America in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Italian metal maestros LACUNA COIL, Danish metal sensation MYRKUR, Holland‘s prog-death outfit MaYaN, USA‘s progressive metallers OCEANS OF SLUMBER and French metal outfit NIGHTMARE are completing the bill!
Simone Simons (vocalist): "Back in 2002, we could have never imagined that one day we'd be playing our 1,000th live show! This couldn't have happened without the support of our dearest and most loyal EPICA legion, so in order to make this an unforgettable night, we've invited some very cool guests to perform with us!"
