Then I went to High School and the music teacher told me I had a good voice.

So I got lessons, but that part was more like POP singing lessons, but I felt that was not really for me, so I switch to classical singing when I was 15, and there I was open to any kind of music style, not only rock, so I started to listen to some more alternative styles, so I got into metal and I was blind by that music, for the first time I was blind!
And speaking about that…Did you ever imagine becoming so popular and traveling the world with a band? What can you tell us about the process of the album?
Did you guys try to move in another direction or try new things to make it different from previous releases? Well it definitely has different elements than our previous album Design Your Universe.
For example, I think is a bit more dirty and darker touches and a lot of extremity, so compared with Design Your Universe it is not as very, how I can say…bombastic, but still very symphonic, but a bit more complicated, a little more darker, a little more heavier. And speaking about your fans. How did they react to the new album? How was the feedback? When I started to listen to metal music, I ran into an album of Amorphis.
I was listening to it and as soon as the guy started singing: We were also looking for a background singer. Floor Jansen came to do an audition. We heard, instantly, this is not a background singer. This is somebody who has to be the front.
Then we decided to do some of the grunts ourselves in After Forever. I kept doing it with Epica ever since. Now I love them again!Epica interview - Mark Jansen (part 1)
That is already so much work. It would take me twice as long as Isaac to record it, so I prefer him doing it, rather than me working my ass off doing all these riffs.
In the studio, if I have to work on the lyrics and to study these licks and to record them, I would go nuts! What did you write? Let me listen to it. Let us work on it. Because in the beginning we like to work on our own. There are a lot of opinions in Epica, a lot of strong opinions.

When you feel like you cannot bring it any further, then we start working on it together. Then it is also easier to accept criticism. Stefan Nilsson, Roppongi Rocks With a firmly established signature sound, is the Epica sound still evolving? But it is too early yet to know what direction will evolve.
I know that some other guys have recorded some ideas. So, everybody is already doing something, but it is too early to know where it will go to.
