Greek masters of symphonic death metal SEPTICFLESH will release their tenth full-length album, “Codex Omega”, on September 1 via Prosthetic Records.
A 360-degree video for the song called “Dante’s Inferno”, taken from “Codex Omega”, can be seen below. The clip was created by Tommy Jones of Videohammer studios.
SEPTICFLESH comment: “We are proud to present the first track from the upcoming album ‘Codex Omega’. The song is appropriately entitled ‘Dante’s Inferno’, acting as a gateway to hell… As it was inscribed on the top of the Hellgate in the famous poem by Dante Alighieri, ‘Through me you pass into the city of woe; Through me you pass into eternal pain; Through me among the people lost for aye’. This is just the first glimpse, the entrance to our new album. Stay tuned as more will gradually be revealed with the release date of our new album getting closer… ”

“Codex Omega” will be available as a 2-CD set, on purple wax vinyl as well as a U.S. indie retail store exclusive on white wax vinyl, and on all digital outlets.
“Codex Omega” was produced by Jens Bogren (OPETH, DIMMU BORGIR) and features ten tracks of SEPTICFLESH‘s trademark blend of mystical atmosphere, relentless death guitar riffing and pale melodies. Lyrically and musically, it is by far the most infernal release from SEPTICFLESH to date. As a bonus, the CD and vinyl LP will come with an extra disc comprised of three orchestral tracks, once again featuring the Filmharmonic Orchestra of Prague.
