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.

Thousand Below Premiere New Music Video “Vein”

Thousand Below premiere a video for “Vein” taken from their latest album, “The Love You Let Too Close“. Comments vocalist James DeBerg of the personal meaning to him behind the track:

“The track ‘Vein‘ is the one song on the record that focuses mainly on the coping mechanism of drug abuse in my own life as well as how it affected and even defeated many people close to me. Ketamine drug abuse is ultimately what led to the suicide of my best friend. Not only did drug abuse lead to the loss of my friend and harm my own life to a certain degree, but my girlfriend who was living with me at the exact time of the loss relapsed on heroin as a reaction to the suicide. She immediately fell out of my life that very month, which only led to the weight on my shoulders that was drug abuse affecting my loved ones.”

Thousand Below will soon be out on the road with Blessthefall, The Word Alive, Ded and more on this tour: More...
