Just in time for the release of their highly anticipated new album “Titan,” the Greek symphonic death metal quartet SEPTICFLESH — who kicked off their long-awaited North American tour with Fleshgod Apocalypse this week — unveiled the final video in their behind-the-scenes “making-of” series.

“Titan” — the band’s Prosthetic debut — has been lauded as “the music of a Biblical apocalypse” (About.com/HeavyMetal) while scoring a near-perfect rating from Outburn, who praised its “grand symphonic orchestration and thunderous percussion.”

Mixed and mastered by acclaimed producer Logan Mader (Gojira, Fear Factory, Cavalera Conspiracy), “Titan” consists of 10 epic, resounding tracks the band self-describes as “the ultimate death metal soundtrack for your darkest dreams.”

Pick up a copy of “Titan” on 2 CD Digi-pak (featuring an extra disc of five orchestral bonus tracks) or Gatefold 2 LP from the band at one of their upcoming co-headlining shows throughout North America with Fleshgod Apocalypse, or from the Prosthetic webstore HERE. Digital downloads are also available now via iTunes (Standard / Deluxe) and Amazon MP3 (Standard/Deluxe).

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE Working On New Album Now!

Italian symphonic death metal act FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE is currently working on their third full-length with producer Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio.

Cristiano Trionfera (guitar, vocals) states: 

“We are tracking guitars now, and the result is amazing… Stefano is nailing it and we know the album will sound incredibly powerful.”

For this album the band also used the precious collaboration of very talented guests, which gave a great contribution to make it a unique piece of art.

Tommaso Riccardi (guitar, vocals) commented:

“The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it. We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticolous research, we managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are. We’re sure you will be stunned by this as much as we are.”

Francesco Paoli (Drummer) adds: 

“It’s difficult to recap in a few words all the elements contained in our new work, but we are sure this will absolutely be THE album for us. We have spent a lot of time composing these new songs and, even if recordings are not finished yet, we can firmly declare that this material is simply incredible, more mature and definitely a huge step forward from all our previous works. Epic complex harmony, sophisticated touching melodies, a true vocal aggression, photonic grooves and back to articulated riffing… these are just few things you will find in this album. It’s fucking quality music, you will see.”

The bands third album is due in August 2013 via Nuclear Blast records worldwide

ARCHSPIRE Release New Studio Footage

Technical death metal force ARCHSPIRE released new studio footage of the members recording their forthcoming Season of Mist debut. The footage can be found here.

ARCHSPIRE (Tobi Morelli – guitar, Spencer Prewett – drums, Dean Lamb – guitar, Jaron Evil – bass & vocals, Oli Peters – vocals)

Recently, ARCHSPIRE was named as a regional opening act for this year’s upcoming Decibel Magazine Tour. On May 21, the band will play alongside CANNIBAL CORSPE, NAPALM DEATH, IMMOLATION, and newly signed label mates, BEYOND CREATION at the Vancouver Commodore.

ARCHSPIRE has taken the world-wide extreme metal scene by storm with their unique blend of blindingly fast, hyper aggressive technical death metal. The five piece are a national headliner in their home country of Canada, and have toured Europe supporting DECAPITATED, ABORTED, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, and more. The band has also supported HATE ETERNAL, NAPALM DEATH, PIG DESTROYER, ORIGIN, and many more throughout western Europe.

“If you are asking, ‘Is there something new to do in Death Metal?’ ARCHSPIRE is the answer” – technicaldeathmetal.com

“This is a truly eye-popping convulsion of tech-death, with schizophrenic rhythms, astounding technical riffing and drumwork, and tiny threads of reappearing melody that stitch the songs together into cohesive wholes. And I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a death-metal vocalist bark out the lyrics faster than ARCHSPIRE’s . . . . This is most definitely a band to keep your eyes on; you will hear more about them” – No Clean Singing

“ARCHSPIRE have released a gem. It’s definitely technical death, and it adroitly blends elements of various tech death bands together. The rhythm guitar work varies from choppy and percussive to fluid and melodic. The blasting and double bass work are absurdly fast, but remain fluent and rhythmic rather than wooden or jittery. The hard to soft musical transitions are as natural as I’ve ever heard in this genre” – InvisibleOranges.com 

“The pick-me-up comes in the form of ARCHSPIRE, a gang of happy-looking Canadians who might have been widely unknown to most present before this performance, but surely no longer. With a technical proficiency bordering on OMFG levels, they still achieve what lacks in a lot of other bands like this: the feat of actually writing songs. What’s more, they noticeably enjoy what they do, so smiles are abundant even if face-peeling technical death metal about alien monoliths and planets being devoured is going on” – Terrorizer

“a galvanizing onslaught of technical riffing and fully weaponized percussion. Racing at high speed, the music unleashes a torrent of jagged, jabbing guitar and bass lines, writhing solos, and abrasive vocals. Yet the execution isn’t cold or robotic — this is death metal that’s on fire” – NoCleanSinging.com
