I was lucky enough to be able to conduct an interview with Mark Jansen, the guitar player and growling voice of Epica fame. Epica is on tour supporting their latest EP The Solace System, which is comprised of songs that were needed to be released, but couldn’t be fit into their album The Holographic Principle.
We had a lovely chat about everything from their love of being able to work with Nuclear Blast, their record label, to which Game of Thrones character Mark would like to be. He shares with us that he wishes he was able to be a writer on that Eagles classic, Hotel California.
Enjoy this audio treat, and get to know Mark better.

She loves music, and talks about new releases from bands frequently. She also enjoys going to shows to recap them, and listening to albums by bands that "mainstream" music isn't interested in, because they're often the best music out there.
