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.

 

Watch as they add the final touches to the recording alongside the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir below:

“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).

CHURCH OF MISERY Announce North American Tour Dates

Church of Misery, Japan’s finest doom export, has announced that their upcoming headlining tour dates for this fall in the United States will now begin on November 1 in Chicago, IL. Issues beyond the band’s control had forced the band to reschedule the first half of the tour, which will now conclude on December 15 in Milwaukee, WI.

To preview the live experience awaiting fans on this tour, watch the video for “Brother Bishop” at metalblade.com/churchofmisery.

Tour dates can be seen below, as well as on facebook.com/churchofmiserydoom.

Thy Kingdom Scum” was written and recorded by Tatsu Mikami, Junji Narita, Ikume Kawabe, and Hideki Fukasawa and features the return of the band’s original vocalist, Hideki Fukasawa. The album has been praised as one of the best doom releases of 2013, with Decibel Magazine declaring it has “some of the wickedest doom grooves since Black Sabbath 40 years ago… it’s resounding proof that no one right now-not even the reunited Sabbath with a newly wound-up Ozzy-can come close to the gargantuan swing of the mighty Church of Misery.”

Terrorizer Magazine adds that “Thy Kingdom Scum” is a “very welcome return of Hideki Fukasawa on vocals (and synth too)… reaching Anselmo-like drawling lows.”

IN SOLITUDE Premiere New Single

Head over to the VICE’s music destination, Noisey, to listen to a brand new track from Swedish classic heavy metal band, In Solitude. Click HERE to stream “A Buried Sun.” The band’s new album Sister is dropping in North America on 10/01 and will be available to fans digitally, on CD, and 180 gram black vinyl. Fans can check out the first single and title track “Sister” at MetalBlade.com/InSolitude.

Fans can also pick up the upcoming issue of Decibel Magazine, November issue #109-out October 3, which features In Solitude on the cover which was shot by internationally-renowned metal and rock photographer Ester Segarra in Sweden. If you aren’t already a subscriber you can check your local bookstore or order from Decibel directly at the following location.

“Sister” was recorded at Studio Cobra in Stockholm, Sweden during March 2013. The album was produced and mixed by Martin “Konie” Ehrencrona and stands as a logical next step above and beyond its predecessor, “The World.The Flesh.The Devil.” In Solitude’s strength resides in their ability to craft dark and oppressive atmospheres within the auditory realm of classic heavy metal. “Sister” compounds this trademark sound further, beginning with the acoustic intro, “He Comes,” and saturates the record in an aura of uniqueness; see: “Lavender” and the title track.

The album concludes with an 8-minute, driving, near trance-like opus that features guest guitarist Pelle Forsberg (Watain). Additionally, Jarboe of Swans fame can be heard on “Horses in the Ground.” Moods range from Mercyful Fate-esque guitar flavors, shadows of Black Sabbath, the heavy dissonance of Swans, to straightforward, earworm riffs. In any case, one thing can be said for certain: their delivery is as genuine as it is impressive.

North American fans will have an opportunity to see In Solitude live this Fall. The band will be supporting Watain on their “Wild Hunt” tour beginning on October 8 in New York City. The tour also features support from Tribulation. Dates can be found below, as well as on facebook.com/insolitudeofficial.
