Seth explains: "This is a small fragment of the artwork that will dress the new artistic experiment of Septicflesh, The Great Mass. It is a small part of an occult machine made from marble and flesh, fantasy and reality, order and chaos. A great machine composed from the blasphemous union of strange figures, creations of Man, the creator of the gods and demons. Their grotesque purpose will be revealed soon, when all the cover editions of the new album will be presented and will be combined together... Let the great self-cannibalistic symposium begin."
As previously announced, Septicflesh's forthcoming album will hit the stores on April 18th (one day later in North America). The Greek demons' new opus is entitled The Great Mass and will be available in several formats to be unveiled soon.

Septicflesh's new album, which title is yet to be revealed, will hit the stores on April 18th, 2011 (one day later in the US) in various editions. The band completed recording the album in November. More news soon!
Greek demons Septicflesh just finished recording the successor of 2008's Communion. After a long period of intense work in Athens, Prague and Sweden, the evolution of the band's Symphonic Death sound has been achieved with the help of the Filmharmonic Orchestra of Prague and well known artist/producer Peter Tägtgren.
130 musicians were involved in the recording process. Besides the traditional classic orchestra instruments, this time Septicflesh incorporated harpsichord, some bizarre ethnic instruments and a boy soprano to their sound, pursuing a more "horror soundtrack" approach. Of course, the guitars will still shred you to death!
The release of the forthcoming 10-song album is expected for the first quarter of 2011. In the meantime, a brand new song will be available worldwide as an exclusive digital download single from this December 17th on. So keep your eyes on this site for updates!
