Hellenic symphonic death metal titans SEPTICFLESH have begun working on new material for the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2014 release “Titan.” Later this year, the band — who say they are currently “in the middle of the writing process” — will join renowned producer Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Opeth) at Sweden’s Fascination Street Studios with their newly enlisted drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Decapitated, Behemoth), who made his live debut on their 2015 North American tour, “Conquerors of the World III.” “Expect a grandiose album,” proclaimed the band. “The new dark opus will feature new dimensions to SEPTICFLESH’s sound!”
A 2017 release is expected via PROSTHETIC RECORDS throughout North America and Season of Mist in the rest of the world.
SEPTICFLESH has earned extensive international acclaim for their nine albums to date, as well as their performances on tour alongside the likes of Cradle of Filth, Amon Amarth, Gorgoroth, Satyricon, Deicide, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Children of Bodom in addition to lauded appearances at Graspop (Belgium), Inferno Fest (Norway), 70000 Tons of Metal and more.
“Titan” — the group’s Prosthetic debut — has been praised as “the music of a Biblical apocalypse” (About.com/HeavyMetal) while scoring a near-perfect rating from Outburn, who praised its “grand symphonic orchestration and thunderous percussion.” Described by the band as “the ultimate death metal soundtrack for your darkest dreams”, “Titan” can be streamed on Spotify (http://sptfy.com/30Yx) and is also available on both CD and double-LP from store.prostheticrecords.com/
