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)

COMESS Premiere New Video “Pit Dweller” From Upcoming New Album “Botched & Flailed”

Louisville, Kentucky-based extreme metal unit COMESS will release their annihilating Botched & Flailed full-length next month. Captured by Tom Curtis of Dead Bird Studios in Louisville, Kentucky and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Full of Hell, Vallenfyre) at Audiosiege in Portland, Oregon, the record boasts eleven tracks of noise-strewn, nihilistic, audio bedlam.

Comments the band:”Botched & Flailed, being our first record, was a huge success in our eyes. We captured something many bands with many more resources strive to achieve. We spent countless hours making every second count, making it the best it could be.Through the ease and mastery of tracking and mixing with Tom Curtis, to the final touches by the heavy music god Brad Boatright, we feel we have created one hell of a punishing record.”

Botched & Flailed will be self-released on June 15th on CD and all digital platforms with preorders to be announced soon.
