Septicflesh Posts Video Teaser

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...
