Reunited SEPTIC FLESH To Record New Album For SEASON OF MIST

Reunited Greek death metal legends SEPTIC FLESH will record their sixth full-length album for the Season of Mist label. According to a press release, the as-yet-untitled CD "will carry all the elements that made the sound of SEPTIC FLESH so distinctive. There will be pale, strange guitar melodies, brutal and sharp riffing, the devil behind the mic, and of course the neoclassical arrangements that are trademark of Chris Antoniou. For that purpose alone, Chris the 'gothic maestro' will torture a full orchestra and choir respectively made of 80 musicians and 32 singers! The rest of the album will be recorded and mixed on what has become the temple of the past two musical rituals of SEPTIC FLESH. Yes, once again they have chosen to invade the famous Fredman studios, with the company of Fredrik Nordström."

SEPTIC FLESH will perform at the Metal Healing Festival, set to take place July 20-22 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

According to Wikipedia, SEPTIC FLESH was a gothic-influenced death metal band from Athens, Greece with dark and macabre synth atmospherics very similar to fellow countrymen ROTTING CHRIST

Formed in 1990, the lineup stayed fairly stable over the years except on albums "The Ophidian Wheel" (1997) and "A Fallen Temple" (1998), which featured a leading female vocalist, Natalie Rassoulis. Their music combined hyper-fast technical death metal, melodic death metal, gothic metal, and industrial metal, a concoction that made them one of the most acclaimed yet still relatively unknown bands of the extreme metal category.

After nearly 14 years as a band, SEPTIC FLESH split up in October 2003. THEDEVILWORX would be formed a year later by some former members. CHAOSTAR was created in 1998, by the band's guitarist, Chris Antoniou, in which he continued to play after SEPTIC FLESH disbanded.
