Septicflesh Recruits New Drummer

Following the departure of long-time percussionist Fotis Benardo, Septicflesh now welcomes drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Decapitated, Behemoth ) to its ranks and the band is excited to start this new chapter with Kerim and look forward to get back on the road.

Krimh comments: "I feel very honored to join such a great band which has been one of my favorites since years. Septicflesh’s music is outstanding and unique. It is melodic and heavy but with groove. Exactly how I like it! I can't wait to start a new chapter with SF and see you on the road."

Marduk Will Not Be Joining Deicide On Tour

Yesterday it was announced that Marduk would be joining Deicide on tour with Carach Angren and Septicflesh, and a tour poster (available below) was released showing Marduk's name.

However Marduk has now stated the band was never confirmed for the tour and will not be appearing. The group's Facebook page was updated with this announcement:

Greek symphonic death metal band Septicflesh recently completed work on an upcoming new album, which will follow the 2011 album "The Great Mass" (reviewed here).

Now the band has posted a trailer online teasing the album and the band's new logo, which can be seen below and was created by Constantinos Kilaris and Corn Studio. The album is due out this summer, and the band comments:

"We are really exhausted from the work on this record, but also very proud of the results. We worked very hard with producer Logan Mader to bring you the ultimate death metal soundtrack for your darkest dreams. The compositions are progressive with a lot of emotional peaks, while at the same time the songs sound very aggressive and powerful. We also had the chance to work for the first time with a full children choir beside the regular adult choir, and that helped us dive deeper into darker cinematic atmospheres. We have achieved a new level of extreme emotions.” More...
