SEPTICFLESH Returns With Massive New Single "Hierophant"

Orchestral and crushing, as always.

Septicflesh is now streaming "Hierophant" off their first new record in five years, Modern Primitive. The single is massive in its instrumental scope, carries with it tons of crushing riffs, and is essentially another step in Septicflesh's already great career. Plus the music video is creepy as hell.

"'Hierophant' is the result of an experiment with ideas that have been haunting our minds for quite a long time," said vocalist and bassist Seth Siro Anton. "Eventually they matured, leading us to create one of our darkest compositions ever. It is a rhythmical song with profane heavy riffing, layered with melodies that bring to mind chants from mystical ancient civilizations like the Egyptians."

"We found it appropriate to add an imposing ritualistic element to the song," added guitarist and orchestrator Christos Antoniou. "So, from the first second until the end, the orchestration is focused 100% on its grim task, to create an awe-inspiring atmosphere and put the listener at the center of this forbidden ceremony."

Modern Primitive is out May 20. Pre-orders are available here.
