In the latest interview on the Metal Pilgrim channel Simone Simons, the frontwoman the Dutch Symphonic Metal band Epica spoke about the band’s latest album Omega, and, among other things, shared a story of how she accidentally almost killed herself.
According to Simone she had an accident in a hotel room which led to her laptop falling on her throat. The full story can be heard in the video below, in the “Crazy Touring Story” section.
Epica released Omega on February 26, 2021. The album received favourable reviews from most music critics, magazines and band’s fan base. The album’s name is taken from The Omega Point theory, which assumes that humanity is moving towards a unification in divine unity with the Creator.
