    It's a supernatural Thriller Metal Concept

    Biography
    With EPYSODE Samuel Arkan (guitarist of the band Virus IV) presents a fascinating new band project. Since years Arkan was working on what will now be released as “Obsessions”, with help from many high class musicians of the progressive- and power metal scene.

    But what exactly makes EPYSODE so outstanding and extraordinary? At first it is of course about the magnitude and quality of the material, which offers melodic and very song-oriented progressive metal at its best. What counts are the songs, and it was secured that these were not watered by endless solo parts or unnecessary playing to the gallery, despite the fact that on the EPYSODE project so many skilled and virtuosic musicians are involved.
    In fact the songs get what they need, what results in material that is not too hard to access to, but on the other hand offers new facets every time of listening because of the complex arrangements.

    The elaborate concept story, penned by Samuel Arkan, gives “Obsessions” a very special touch. “The songs convey dialogue, feelings, thoughts and important clues which will reveal the “story behind the story”, Arkan comments.
    Short overview: a young police profiler investigates a mysterious series of murders. And while he does, he gets in touch with several supernatural phenomena that draw him deeper and deeper, to become a major part of the story…

    With outstanding expressive voices from the likes of Kelly „Sundown“ Carpenter (Beyond Twilight, Darkology), Oddleif Stensland (Communic), Rick Altzi (At Vance, Thunderstone), Magali Luyten (Ayreon, Beautiful Sin, Virus IV) und Liselotte Hegt (Ayreon, Dial, Valentine) “Obsessions” reaches and impressive draft and atmosphere which makes it a must-have for fans of ambitious bands/projects like Ayreon, Evergrey, Avantasia or Star One.

    In addition the musician´s line-up of EPYSODE is peppered with true masters: besides the mastermind, band leader and guitarist Samuel Arkan, bass player Kristoffer Gildenlöw (Pain Of Salvation, Dial), lead guitarist Christophe Godin (Morglbl Trio), drummer Leo Margarit (Pain Of Salvation) and the young keyboard talent Julien Spreutels (Ethernity) are all part of the project.

    Mix and mastering of the album was done by the experienced Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Pagan´s Mind, Jorn).

    „Obsessions” will be released on August 26th, and no doubt: fans of ambitious melodic- and progressive metal will love it.
