Septicflesh Signs With Nuclear Blast

Nuclear Blast is pleased to announce the worldwide signing of Greek symphonic death metal outfit, Septicflesh! The group's unique blend of symphonic arrangements, avant garde elements, atomosphere and eviscerating extreme metal has been converting legions into fans since the 90s. Now, with a streak of modern classic albums under their belt such as "Sumerian Daemons" (2002), "Communion" (2008), "The Great Mass" (2011), "Titan" (2014), and now "Codex Omega" (2017) there seems to be no stopping this creative juggernaut.

“We are honored to have signed with one of the worlds leading record labels, Nuclear Blast records," commented the band. "Septicflesh has always been a hard working band looking, to the future while keeping traditional elements and utilizing a modern and dark feel to our music.

We will keep touring in support of it and prepare for the conquests set before us!” More...

Bloodstock 2018: Day Two

Following a highly entertaining opening day which featured standout performances from Judas Priest, Suicidal Tendencies and Doro, Bloodstock Open Air had much to offer for the middle of the weekend, from death metal legends to up and comers to elaborate stage shows.

Having missed out on main stage openers, Nailed To Obscurity, my Saturday began at the Ronnie James Dio stage with one of the most talked about young bands going today, Texan thrashers, Power Trip. Thrash metal, being comprised in part by hardcore punk, can often be a gamble when translated to a large, outdoor stage during the day, with some bands not always able to make it work. It's safe to say however, that Power Trip don't have this problem.

Promoting their latest album, "Nightmare Logic," which was released last year, the group tore apart the main stage and attacked the waking audience with a tenacity that couldn't have been more confrontational unless they continuously shouted, "WAKE UP DICKHEADS, IT'S TIME FOR POWER TRIP!" It may have been morning but the energy that the band transferred to the crowd already resulted in mosh pits and crowd surfing, as vocalist Riley Gale spurred on the madness with his performance alone. A great way to start the day thanks to a band who will only get bigger and badder with time. More...

70000 Tons Of Metal: Day Two

After a superb first day aboard the Independence Of The Seas, it was time for another long day of seeing and meeting some of the most revered bands in metal. There's worse ways of spending a long weekend I suppose...

A late night and jet lag meant sleeping in longer than expected and missing out on the first few bands, though I was up and fed in time to head to the pool deck for the first time and check out one of the greatest names in British death metal, Benediction. While some may onky recognise them as the group Barney Greenway fronted before joining Napalm Death, the Birmingham based bruisers have had a long career with some outstanding music under their belts and it's fair to say that a live setting is the best place to sample it. There's no frills and no pretentiousness about Benediction, they're working class English guys who play old school, thrash inspired death metal and they do it wonderfully. I imagine Benediction to thrive in a small venue, which makes an outdoor venue with thousands of potential crowd members something of a risk, as not all bands used to intimate stages can work on a bigger setting. I'm pleased to report however, that Benediction don't have this problem. Those in attendance were treated to a blistering performance, which no doubt won over those who are put off by the poor production of their earlier work and delighted fans and curious parties. A great way to kick off the day. More...

Septicflesh Posts New Video Online

Greek symphonic death metal veterans Septicflesh has posted a new music video online for the song, "Martyr." You can check it out below. The song comes from the band's latest album, "Codex Omega," which was released last year through Season Of Mist Records and is the second song to receive the music video treatment after, "Portrait Of A Headless Man," which was also directed by Jon Simvonis. Speaking about the video and it's kendo theme, the band stated:

"We are welcoming the new year by releasing a second video from our latest album, 'Codex Omega' – this time for the song, 'Martyr'. Once again the clip is directed by Jon Simvonis, blending the music of Septicflesh with Kendo, which literally means 'the way of the sword'. It is a battle of sword and spirit. The ultimate goal of the fighter is to become superior to his own previous self."

Director Jon Simvonis adds: "We really had an awesome time filming Septicflesh while they were delivering an explosive performance for the 'Martyr' video! No wonder, why this band nails it on every stage that they set foot on." More...
