Staff review by

Septic Flesh, a band that was always expressing the Faustian spirit and the aenaon search of the soul. In nowadays' society where human beings have no opinion nor will of their own, imprisoned by their own will, they only follow and they feed upon lies, waiting for the land of promise and a fake paradise/utopia, Septic Flesh with "Sumerian Daemons" bring forth the arch meaning of the word "Demon" (Daemon). Daemon = Demon = the one who seeks knowledge, wisdom, the free spirit that won't follow; definitely not the false meaning that Church passed throughout the centuries of a dark soul/fallen angel trying to lead humans to eerie delights/temptation. They take us back to the ancient civilizations of the Sumerians and ancient Egypt, thousands of years ago, when humans were searching for utter knowledge and attain wisdom. The Sumerian ziggurats and the pyramids of Egypt, symbols of symmetry and a free age when the spirit was able to fly…

I gotta say, when I first listened to this album I didn't really liked it, and I thought it was uninteresting. But it's been growing on my like no other! How can I be so fool to think this was not interesting...? lol

  When they disbanded back in time i thought myself: "why disband after they created an album like Summerian Daemon?" The album felt like a hammer smashing your face with a hammer. Certainly it had many melodic parts but i must say it was more brutal than melodic...Anyway, Septic Flesh are one of the few bands that each album travels you to another dimension through nighmares and sighs since their first album...Hail to the hordes of the dreamlord !!!

Rating: 9 I am a huge fan of this band, and have been for the last half a year. This album is so fucking powerful its almost impossible to take it all in in one listen. The industrial and symphonic flourishes may steer fans of the band's more extreme side away, but i believe it adds to a balance that puts this band firmly in a world of their own.
