Septicflesh Signs Record Deal 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. We needed someone who would understand this and we are happy to have found our new home with Nuclear Blast. In the meantime, our latest album ‘Codex Omega’ continues to gain ground worldwide. We will keep touring in support of it and prepare for the conquests set before us!”

Nuclear Blast comments:
“We at Nuclear Blast are fans huge fans of Septicflesh, and we’re extremely excited to be working with one of the most revolutionary and forward thinking Extreme Metal bands around. We very much look forward working with the band on their upcoming pieces of sonic art!”

Septicflesh plan on releasing their Nuclear Blast debut in 2019. More information to be announced in the near future so stay tuned.

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, Amon 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.

Septicflesh is:
Seth (brutal vocals, bass)
Christos Antoniou (guitars, orchestral)
Sotiris V. (guitars, clean vocals)
Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (drums)

Septicflesh Posts “The Enemy Of Truth” Lyric Video

Today the Greek demons from Septicflesh unveil a lyric video for “The Enemy Of Truth,” taken off impending album “Codex Omega” that will drop September 1st, 2017. The band comments:

“In the past it was much easier for someone in a position of power to silence an ‘irritating’ mouth. In our age, with the evolution of communication and the high speed that information can be spread to the 4 corners of the world, new elaborate methods are being employed.

“And many claim to fight in the name of truth, but essentially they fight against it… Many voices making noise vs few voices speaking clearly. Can this turn the other way around? Listen to ‘Enemy of Truth’ below!

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…”
