Drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek comments: “Here’s the drum playthrough from the abyss!! During the shooting, I hit and kicked the crap out of my kit for a fat and heavy sound, and I’m very happy to launch the drums-up-close of our opening track from our latest album “Omega“! All you Epicans; enjoy and bang your heads!!”
