New Album "Codex Omega" Announced By Septicflesh, 360° Video "Dante's Inferno" Available

Primordial, menacing and majestic; Septicflesh - the gods of orchestral extreme metal - return with the new album "Codex Omega." The first single "Dante's Inferno" can be seen as 360° video below.

Available September 1st in North America via Prosthetic Records, the album will be available as a 2-CD set, on purple wax vinyl as well as a US indie retail store exclusive on white wax vinyl and through all digital outlets. Pre-orders are up now and available at this location.

"Codex Omega" was produced by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir) and features 10 tracks of their trademark blend of mystical atmosphere, relentless death guitar riffing and pale melodies. Lyrically and musically, Codex Omega is by far the most infernal release from Septicflesh to date. As a bonus, the CD and vinyl LP will come with an extra disc comprised of three orchestral tracks, once again featuring the Filmharmonic Orchestra of Prague.

The track listing is as follows:

CD 1:

1. Dante's Inferno
2. 3rd Testament (Codex Omega)
3. Portrait of a Headless Man
4. Martyr
5. Enemy of Truth
6. Dark Art
7. Our Church, Below the Sea
8. Faceless Queen
9. The Gospels of Fear
10. Trinity

CD 2:

1. Martyr of Truth
2. Dark Testament
3. Portrait of a Headless Man (Orchestral Version)

The video was created by Tommy Jones at Videohammer studios. Guitarist Sotiris V. comments on the track, "We are proud to present the first track from the upcoming album, Codex Omega. The song is appropriately entitled "Dante's Inferno", acting as a gateway to hell... as it was inscribed on the top of the Hellgate in the famous poem by Dante Alighieri, 'Through me you pass into the city of woe; Through me you pass into eternal pain; Through me among the people lost for aye'. This is just the first glimpse - the entrance to our new album. Stay tuned as more will gradually be revealed with the release date of our new album getting closer..."
