Titans are the most ancient of all the gods depicted in Greek mythology - even older than the Olympic deities, They represent the forces of nature, No other title could have been more apt to represent Septicflesh's ninth full-length. "Titan" is the power of darkness made manifest in music.
Guitarist Christos Antoniou, who passed his academic studies of classical composition with honours and distinction, already proved his prowess for orchestration with "The Great Mass" (2011), Now "Titan" shows a level of maturity in his use of classical instruments in a metal context with no equal, The way to this glory was paved by the Greek's celebrated comeback album "Communion" (2008), which came as a refined version of Septicflesh's long established sound: massive deadly guitars on the edge of blackness with intricate string-work supplemented by haunting gothic melodies and epic orchestral arrangements, The Greeks had used their hiatus after splitting up in 2003 well.
Starting out as Septic Flesh in 1990, they released the "Temple of the Lost Race" EP only one year later, With every following album from their debut "Mystic Places of Dawn" (1994) to the stunning "Sumerian Daemons" (2003) the band evolved in huge steps transforming and honing their songwriting skills and sound into highly original and very cinematic dark musical matter that has been described as black, death and gothic metal, Most of their previous albums have meanwhile been reissued with bonus material and made available again by Seasons of Mist, Yet now Septicflesh have reached a new peek in their career.
This "Titan" stands high and proud as a new force of nature to be reckoned with!
