Septicflesh Releases New Lyric Video

Symphonic death metal maestros Septicflesh has revealed a striking lyric video, accompanying their magnificent new single "A Desert Throne." Depicting a desolate, desert wasteland, completely void of humanity as we know it - one hopes that the end of times are a farfetched, distant future...

The band commented:
"This is a more epic song with dominant dramatic melodies. Will mankind be leaving behind a barren Earth as its legacy? A desert planet like Mars? For the visualization of the song, a small animation sequence was created by Cloud Factory and was “dressed” appropriately with the lyrics of the song. Enjoy!"

Septicflesh's forthcoming studio record "Modern Primitive" will be released on 20th May 2022. More...

Septicflesh Shares "Neuromancer" Video

Symphonic death metal masters Septicflesh have revealed a new video for their magnificent new single "Neuromancer". The track thunders along with a fierce groove whilst allowing for flourishes of otherworldly atmosphere to permeate the seemingly impenetrable wall of sound. You can watch the video below.

Guitarist, vocalist and lyricist Sotiris Anunnaki V. comments "A technologically advanced society, where morals decline and crime thrives, is the “stage” of this song. The main character is suffering from severe neural damage. In order to receive a cure, and be able to physically reconnect to the global network, he accepts an obscure hacking mission. After all, the virtual reality data space, to him, is more like home.

"The skeleton of the song was structured upon the 12 string guitar. The main melody and the various emotional tones of the song, were crafted upon this more organic-sounding instrument. Then, after arrangement decisions were taken, the song turned out the way you hear it. Besides the strings, brass, and other standard orchestra sections used, a mandolin takes a lead role preparing for the climax of the addictive chorus and the ultra-heavy main riff. Also, there is a more theatrical interaction with the various vocal styles within our arsenal in this song." More...

Septicflesh Reveals New Album Details

Symphonic death metal architects Septicflesh have announced details of their upcoming eleventh studio album "Modern Primitive". To coincide with the announcement, the band have revealed the conceptual new video for the album's first single "Hierophant". You can watch the video below. The album is scheduled to be released through Nuclear Blast on May 20th.

"Hierophant" tells the first part of story written by guitarist and clean vocalist Sotiris Anunnaki V titled "Salvation". It depicts the experience of a high priest, acting as a human conduit between Heaven and Earth. Having never heard a single word from the mouth of god, he grows tired of preaching the preordained words of the clergy. He turns to performing primitive and powerful rituals that have been long forbidden, as he seeks the guidance of a chaotic elemental consciousness. The second part of the tale will be revealed with the track "Self-Eater".

Vocalist and bassist Seth Siro Anton comments "Hierophant is the result of an experiment with ideas that have been haunting our minds for quite a long time. Eventually they matured, leading us to create one of our darkest compositions ever. It is a rhythmical song with profane heavy riffing, layered with melodies that bring to mind chants from mystical ancient civilizations like the Egyptians."

Guitarist and orchestrator Christos Antoniou states "We found it appropriate to add an imposing ritualistic element to the song. So, from the first second until the end, the orchestration is focused 100% on its grim task, to create an awe-inspiring atmosphere and put the listener at the center of this forbidden ceremony."

Septicflesh Records Children's Choir For New Album

Fantastic news from Greek's most promising symphonic death metal export: Septicflesh took another huge step in completing the recordings of their upcoming studio album. The children choir recordings for the new record are done - adding an unique vibe to the album as the band states:

"The children choir recordings for the new Septicflesh album have been completed with the very good collaboration of the Libro Coro. So you can expect some realy emotional parts on the songs, that thrive on the contrast of the angelic voices with the musical pandemonium surrounding them."

The as yet untitled new album has been in progress since August of this year and is set to be the band's first album in four years, marking the longest gap in between albums since reforming, as well as the band's first album since signing with Nuclear Blast.

The full concert was taped in February 2019 during a sold out show at the Metropolitan Theater in Mexico City (MX).

Septicflesh Films Mexican Show For DVD

Last Saturday, Greek symphonic death metal outfit, Septicflesh, delivered a historic sold out performance at the Metropolitan Theater in Mexico City. The unforgettable night, entitled Infernus Sinfonica MMXIX, was the largest production of its kind at the venue which included the band and over 130 musicians from the Symphonic Orchestra and National University Of Mexico Children's and Youth Choir. If you weren't one of the 3, 200 attendees, rest assured that you will be able to witness the achievement as live footage of the event was captured for a future DVD release.

Septicflesh's unique blend of symphonic arrangements, avantgarde elements, atmosphere 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.

Septicflesh's latest album "Codex Omega" is the first to feature former Decapitated drummer Kerim "Krimh" Lechner. Months of hard work and experimentation crafted the album, and resulted in 10 compositions of dark sonic bliss. Lyrically and musically, "Codex Omega" is by far the most infernal release of Septicflesh to date. The album was produced by highly acclaimed metal producer, Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amom Amarth, Kreator). Besides the orchestral side represented once again by the Filmharmonic Orchestra of Prague, the band utilized traditional instruments such as Oud and Duduk and also a 12 string electro-acoustic guitar, enhancing the mystical atmosphere of the compositions. Of course as always, Codex Omega is dominated by the relentless death guitar riffing and the pale melodies that are the trademark of Septicflesh.
