Greek extreme metallers SEPTICFLESH have finished recording the follow-up to 2008's "Communion" for an early 2011 release. 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 producer and
PAIN/HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren (AMON AMARTH, MARDUK, THERION, CHILDREN OF
BODOM, CELTIC FROST, IMMORTAL).
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 December 17.
