Bio:

Formed in March 1990, SEPTICFLESH released their first Mini Lp "Temple of the Lost Race" in December 1991. Its tracks have been reprinted in June 2002 as a bonus on a digipack re-edition of their first album "Mystic Places of Dawn". A 3 songs promotape including two titles of this Mini Lp and the title “Morpheus (The Dreamlord)” enabled them to sign a contract with Holy records.They recorded their first album "Mystic Places of Dawn" in April 1994 at the Storm studio with Magus Wampyr Daoloth as Co-producer. The song “Return to Carthage” then appeared on the Nuclear Blast compilation "Death Is Only The Beginning III". One year later, in June 1995, they released "Esoptron" which was to be followed by "Ophidian Wheel" in May 1997. To record it, they chose the Praxis studio and Lambros Sfyris as Co-producer."A Fallen Temple" which was released in March 1998, was also recorded there, with L.Sfyris.The recruiting of Natalie Rassoulis and the neo-classical influences gave the band's new songs a more theatrical and technical dimension. SEPTICFLESH then shot its first video for "The Eldest Cosmonaut" which was released in September 1998 in a special packaging including a video tape and a Cd composed of 4 new tracks.The successful "Temple of Humiliations" tour (with Natron and Misanthrope) brought to the band a true popularity. In June 1999 they invested the Fredman studios where they began to record "Revolution DNA" with Fredrik Nordstrom as producer. The album was launched in October 1999 and presented an innovative musical style. Trying to boost its career the band worked with "Harvest management" in order to find a new record company.SEPTICFLESH signs on Hammerheart records at at the end of 2001 and turns over in summer 2002 to the Fredman studios to record Sumerian Daemons which will leave at the end of this same year. This album joins again with the past and is a sumptuous mixture of all the facets of SEPTICFLESH.In April of 2007 Chris , Spiros , Sotiris and Fotis began to work on their 6th,still untitled album for the "Seasons Of Mist" record company.The legend says that a mythical creature named phoenix could reborn from its ashes. It is also said that those who carry the spirit of "burning phoenix" are unstoppable, even by the flames of an "infernal sun", as they possess the "ophidian will" to carry on, beyond all obstacles. But enough with cryptic talks and hints... Let it be known that legendary SEPTICFLESH have returned! Greek daemons Seth, Chris Antoniou, Sotiris V. and Fotis Benardo are back as they decided that besides their experimentation with different projects and musical paths, the path of the Flesh was not completely explored. And they have more nightmares to share... SEPTICFLESH recorded their sixth full length album for "Season of Mist". The yet untitled album was to contain all the elements that made the sound of SEPTICFLESH so unique: pale, strange guitar melodies, brutal and sharp riffing, the devil behind the mic, and of course the neoclassical arrangements that are Chris Antoniou's trademark.To get that result, Chris the "gothic maestro" tortured a full orchestra and a choir respectively composed of 80 musicians and 32 singers! The rest of the album was recorded and mixed in what has become the temple of their past two musical rituals. Yes, once again they chose to invade the famous Fredman studios, with Fredrik Nordstrom."On winds of smoke they are singing, their calling is the calling of the free, Fly with Us" - Burning Phoenix.

Album:

Right off the bat – it took me a hell of a long time to get some kind of grip on Titan. This is no surprise seeing as how these Greeks’ multi-layered fusion of death metal, symphonic embellishments and the odd gothic touch doesn’t exactly lend itself to easy listening. That said, alarm bells started going off when, after my umpteenth listen, my review notes amounted to little more than inanities like “eerie sense to atmospherics”. Something was clearly amiss…Ask me what that elusive “something” is and I’ll be hard pressed to give you an articulate answer. Musically this album falls in the same symphonic/operatic death metal vein the Greeks tapped so successfully on Sumerian Daemons and subsequently perfected on The Great Mass. As you’d expect from such a veteran outfit, Titan represents a confluence of crisp production values, faultless musicianship and a keen sense of dramatics. Formalistically there is nothing wrong with Titan. Attentive listens did, however, reveal a few chinks in their sonic armour. Whereas The Great Mass had a fully fleshed out sound that represented the most effective synthesis between metal and classical this side of Therion and perhaps (older) Hollenthon, the songs on Titan come across as strangely disjointed and porous.Septicflesh in full flight represents a proverbial tug of war between light and shade, high on atmosphere, adrenaline and a knack for emotive juxtaposition. Songs like “Prototype” and the title track nail this particular aesthetic, with the former bursting out of the gates with a hulking main riff, a throbbing low-end and pensive downtempo moments that recall Paradise Lost, while the latter ramps up the symphonic side of the band while simultaneously snaking rather speedy blackened death elements into the mix. When they get it right, as they do on these aforementioned tracks, the result is undeniably thrilling. Sadly, the remainder of the album pales in comparison. “Confessions of a Serial Killer” sees the Greeks busting out some of the eeriest strings this side of Joseph Bishara’s work on the Insidious score but without the presence of effective riffs as counterpoint the end result feels vapid. This half-baked approach is also evident on “Dogma,” that features a surprisingly swaggering groove riff and moody choral section, only for the band to stick to the latter too long (and with too little enthusiasm). This lack of vitality also undermines the band’s best efforts on “Order of Dracul,” where blaring horns and war drums segue nicely into a predominant death metal section… and then just runs it into the ground with no appreciation for nuance or dynamics along the way.That, my friends, is the rub of Titan. Almost all the songs on here start off exponentially better than the way they end, or the band just seems too ensconced in a comfortable autopilot mode. Individual highlights abound but when taken as a whole the album comes across as too safe and too mechanical. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s been reduced to mere embers but the flame that burned so brightly on Sumerian Daemons, Communion and The Great Mass is flickering ever so precariously on Titan.

Album:

When Septic Flesh released A Fallen Temple in 1998, many fans contemplated the direction the band would take with their next release, which was to be unveiled later in the year. A Fallen Temple was a culmination of all the bands efforts to date, but also an album that edged the band in a completely new direction than before. With reports circling that Natalie Rassoulis would not feature and that Sotiris was to assume a more dominant role in terms of vocals, it was clear that Revolution DNA was shaping up to be the most raw, modern sounding record the band had produced to date; a record that stands out to this day in the discography of Septic Flesh in terms of the music styles portrayed.However, the true impact of Revolution DNA could not have been imagined by any fan or critic. A stripped down approach to something Septic Flesh had never produced before. Here, we find certain trademarks we come to expect absent; in their place we find a new melodic approach, filled with weighty riffs, direct song structures and the now extremely reliable base of Akis "Lethe" Kapranos on drums. His input keeps the album plugging along and ensures this is the band’s most vigorous album to date. While subtle keyboard undertones remain to give the album melody, texture and most notably, atmosphere, this is an almost entirely revamped Septic Flesh sound. An intrepid move by a band now oozing confidence, a fact made obvious by the impressive results on display.The most striking element introduced on Revolution DNA is the increase in Sotiris’ vocal capacities. Building on previous performances, his new semi-clean vocal techniques sound imposing and at times, vicious. Seth’s presence and impact on the album is as ferocious and fearsome as ever, the two interlock fantastically on tracks such as “Radioactive” and Sotiris’ new malevolent tones coalesce strikingly with the new musical direction Septic Flesh have taken; his diverse performance fills this record with surprises and ensures it spans as many subgenres as possible. The intensified performance of the guitarists fills the spacey passages with dual guitar harmonies and the two combine in brutal fashion to carve out the biggest riffs Septic Flesh had written to date. Songs like “Science” and “Chaostar” not only show off the new vocal patterns of Sotiris at their most malevolent, but also the type of riffs he and Christos can forge, interchanging heavy chugging sections with the beautiful melodic leads they have executed so many times in the past. “Last Stop To Nowhere” is a track many have labeled as dispensable when compared to the other material on Revolution DNA, however, I find this ballad to be among Septic Flesh’s finest moments, awash with melody, alive with texture and is a clear acknowledgement of the band’s beginnings. A slow track filled with delicately executed guitar leads, keyboard undertones and most surprisingly, an infectious bass line. The beautiful alternated vocals of Sotiris give the track raw emotion and a song that is surely a spectacularly intimate affair in a live setting.Therein lies the appeal of Septic Flesh; each record is a vastly contrasted yet equally surreal experience. While Revolution DNA may be a different album in terms of style and atmosphere, it is by no means a blotch on the excellent Septic Flesh back catalogue. It is a behemoth that shows the true force and capabilities of the band without the aid of orchestrations or outside vocal additions. A superb performance that shows the evolution required if a band is to avoid fading into the tepid background of modern day metal. For the band, Revolution DNA is the crossing of the threshold into new unexplored territory, and unlike many bands who have attempted the same feat, they have succeeded in creating something immense.

Album:

Codex Omega is Septicflesh’s best record in years and a towering majesty of extreme metal that is certain to be remembered as one of 2017’s crowning gems.That's not exactly subtle, but neither is Codex Omega, Septicflesh's monumental 10th record. The Greek quartet's latest is an artfully constructed ode to brutality that almost perfectly fuses symphonic metal and death metal together to create a graceful and elegant, yet staggeringly violent, masterwork of chaos. It genuinely doesn't get much better than this.This isn't the first time Septicflesh has approached such a high standard of excellence, and though Codex Omega isn’t perfect, it is nonetheless so consistently phenomenal that it practically doesn’t matter. A few minutes of Codex Omega are great. Those are the low points. Elsewhere, this is a jaw-droppingly epic and thoroughly hellacious metallic tsunami that only gets better on subsequent listens.There are numerous examples of this throughout Codex Omega, but "Enemy of Truth" is a particular highlight on a record with no shortage of standout moments. Its symphonic and metal elements initially stand apart, but each does a phenomenal job of bolstering the other without overcrowding things. The two distinct elements gradually converge into a thrilling midsection, where things abruptly break off, only to again build up to a cinematic and wailing conclusion.That's a bit technical, so here's another way to describe it: The track positively slays. Codex Omega is full of these quiet nuances and they go far to extend its longevity and bring clarity to the crushing heaviness, but they're subtle enough to avoid diluting the core of the music.For newcomers skeptical about the fusion of death metal and symphonic music, any hesitation will be eradicated mere minutes into the record. Septicflesh's symphonic elements are key to the music and it's impossible to imagine Codex Omega as a straight death metal piece, but that's not to imply that it skimps on the ferocity. Codex Omega is one of 2017's most merciless albums, and is actually considerably more aggressive than Septicflesh's other recent works, which were already formidable affairs. The death growls sound more like thundering death roars, while the average distorted riff carries the bombastic gravitas that is typically only sustained for mere seconds in lesser records. Soaring symphonies and loud-as-hell production tie everything together, yet the songs move at a brisk enough pace and offer just enough reprieves to keep things fresh for the duration.Sometimes, Septicflesh abandons all nuance in favor of smashing the listener half dead with pure savagery. The results, on tracks such as "Faceless" and "Gospel," are no less stunning. The first is Codex Omega’s monstrous apex—no small feat—and without a doubt one of the finest pieces in the band’s catalogue. “Faceless” opens with frantic, borderline desperate, riffing and some especially emotive howling, and Septicflesh maintains the blistering intensity for the following five minutes, while still somehow logically integrating a fair number of clean vocals and symphonic breaks.Again, Codex Omega isn’t perfect, but its low points are still of the high quality that most bands only dream of. The clean singing on “Dark Art” and “Our Church” is a bit strained, and both lack the raw fury of that carries most of the other songs here. The thing is, they’re still good, and only stand out negatively because everything else is so astonishingly impressive.Communion, Septicflesh’s 2008 album, is still the band’s magnum opus, but Codex Omega isn’t far behind. Tracks on the former record, such as “Anubis,” “Babel’s Gate” and the monolithic title track, are among the greatest metal songs ever recorded, and the fact that Codex Omega comes even remotely close to that level of aptitude is a sign that this is a truly incredible release.There's been no shortage of incredible metal releases this year, and while early talks about 2017's absolute best albums is certainly a topic for contentious debate, there's no doubt that Codex Omega unarguably deserves to be considered in that conversation. Death metal fans, symphonic metal fans and all other metal music fans need apply. This isn’t one to miss.
