Gods of orchestral extreme metal, Septicflesh, will release the unrelenting new opus “Codex Omega” on September 1st in North America via Prosthetic Records. As a follow up to the release of the first single, “Dante’s Inferno,” the band dropped the colossal new track “3rd Testament (Codex Omega).” Grab ahold of your seat and listen via the new lyric video in the player towards the bottom.
The video was created by Cloud Music Typography. Guitarist Sotiris V. comments on the track, “As the release date of our new album is getting closer, it is appropriate to introduce you to the song that revolves around the main theme, “3rd Testament (Codex Omega)”. So, behold the anti-bible. Listen to the sutras of the 3rd and final book in the divine drama series…”
“Codex Omega” will be available as a 2-CD set, on purple wax vinyl as well as a U.S. indie retail store exclusive on white wax vinyl, and on all digital outlets. Preorders are up now and available at this location.
“Codex Omega” was produced by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Dimmu Borgir) and features 10 tracks of that 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 list is:
1. Dante’s Inferno (see 360 degree video clip here)
2. 3rd Testament (Codex Omega)
3. Portrait of a Headless Man
5. Enemy of Truth
6. Dark Art
7. Our Church, Below the Sea
