“After all those years, Design Your Universe remains one of my all-time favorite Epica albums. I know that the message behind the title song also resonates with a lot our fans because there are so many Design Your Universe related tattoos. The title track and Unleashed are songs that I hold very dear and the memories we made in that time of our career. I am looking forward to go back in time with you all while we play more songs from our Design Your Universe album.

Today, I fixed the press section to remove broken links and add new ones. There are now 108 interviews you can read, watch or listen to, from 2003 to 2018. I will of course add more soon, but it should be enough to keep you busy for a few hours !

My goal for October was to revamp our media center to add new functionalities (like and share videos, see related files, browse by popular tag etc.), add more videos and check all the old ones to remove broken links. There are almost 150 videos now and of course more are coming soon ! It took all my free time but I’m very proud of what the media center looks like, and I hope you will like it too.

As you can see, I also changed the layout for something darker, because dark layouts are perfect for fall/winter !

(The only problem is that a lot of the permalinks in the media center were changed in the process, so I need some time to fix the press and career section now… and the style section is coming soon ! Thank you for your patience !)
