Septicflesh are painting an apocalyptic vision and make full use of their impressive musical palette consisting of death metal and orchestral colours on their tenth full-length, ‘Codex Omega’!
With a clear musical compass to navigate, Septicflesh continued to explore their sound and the compositional possibilities of this new-found metal continent. ‘The Great Mass’ (2011) and ‘Titan’ (2014) saw the Greeks evolving at fast speed and at the same time gathering adherents as well as critical praise in ever growing numbers. Extended touring on both sides of the Atlantic and performances at about every important festival further consolidated the bands burgeoning status.
Although the biblical omega marks the end, Septicflesh on the contrary are reaching their current peak with ‘Codex Omega’, an album that clearly witnesses the Greek visionaries having come to maturity and expert craftsmanship in every sense. Septicflesh are the undisputable masters of symphonic death metal and ‘Codex Omega’ is the perfect proof for this bold statement.
