Hi from Turkey

We talked with Mark Jansen, Arien van Weesenbeek and Simone Simons from Epica before Istanbul concert.


Maybe this question was never ask to Simone:

- Turk Gitar: This question is for Simone Simons. I want to mention something taht is the most populer event recently. As you know, after Arch Enemy's vocal Angela had been a mother, she left the group in order to spend more time with her family. So, after Simone had been a mom, how did it influence Simoneís reliationship with the group? Did you have any problems during you made the new album?

- Simone: For me that won't be the case, I will stay with Epica. It's my work, the work that I love so I would never give it up. As a group we became even more tight. Everybody reacted very positive about me being pregnant and having a child. This trust and love from all the other guys were very important to me. During the last stage of the pre production for the new album The Quantum Enigma I could not move too much anymore so producer Joost van den Broek, Sascha Paeth and Mark came to my house to work on the vocal lines with me. We didn't see it as a difficulty we used all possibilities we had to create the best possible album and I believe that the extra time we got to work on this album had a very positive outcome on the quality of the songs and the album itself.
