Septic Flesh 'Communion'

Recommended Posts

Ok i'm not usually into this kind of music except for a few bands like the mighty Nile...

The new Septicflesh is a pure masterpiece of Pomp Heavy Dark death music with splendid orchestrations. Songs like 'Anubis' or 'Persepolis' are true gems...

Any fans here ?

Seriously, you like NILE? I love my Death Metal but even I can't get into them. They have to be about as technical as D.M gets, often disappearing up their own arses in technicality (the drumming is absurd - even though it's obviously triggered). I can enjoy bands like DEICIDE, PESTILENCE, DECAPITATED & HATE ETERNAL, but NILE are just lunatics...

Yes :)

I really love Nile. Because of their 'pomp' side. The antic egyptian orchestrations and feeling, the wild brutality of the songs, the totaly insane Karl Sander's vocals...etc. I like Pestilence as well, but I prefer pomp death metal... BTW if you know cool bands in this style let them come...

Don't know much about Septic Flesh but my bro (the death metal guy in the family) loooooooves NILE. They don't do a thing for me but their song title "Masturbating the War God" was one of the funniest things I'd seen in a while :lol:

HAHHAAHAH LOL

These guy are really sick !

the lyrics :

Evil sick flames cast uncertain shadowsin the dimly lit Temple of

Anhur as we count the dead and vanquished by hacking off their

phalluses and piling the severed hands before the living stone

image of God.

The shamed and humbled women of the subjugated kneel in hopeless

Aquiescence as we grasp them by the hair and force them to serve

our father Anhur.

Yea we impale them on the massive stone member of the Ithyphallic

War God until the backs of their throats are torn out and their

bowels are ripped apart.

One by one we force the female captives to serve the Ahati until

the Gods legs are awash with blood and his phallus drips with

red and black gore Un snem sheth tesher mekhsefu parthal m aba

neth Anhur.

We lay our bloodstained weapons of Iron on the altar of Anhur and

His Seed blesses us with strength to slay our enemies Like as unto

Menthu we have become Ithyphallic.

The mighty Sekhmet is with us.

funny

But Keith, Septic Flesh is far from Nile. Its much more melodic and heavy. Just listen to this song, maybe you will like :

You should avoid the new Pestilence album then, as it's back to their straight Death Metal (I love it!) after that jazzy "Spheres" stuff. You should try CYNIC, they're pretty progressive/bombastic, and ATHEIST followed the same path as Pestilence did too. Assume you already own stuff like STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and OPETH?....

I have the first Cynic which is for me a real masterpiece. I have to order their latest one, but I'm afraid thay can't reach the high class of their first one...

SYL and Opeth are both fantastic bands (I'm a great D. Townsend fan)

Atheist : I only have Piece Of Time which is excellent

Pestilence : I don't have any CD from that band...

CYNIC is not really my thing, but my mate loves them (he loves bombastic/proggy extreme metal) and he said the 2nd album is killer. The Pestilence album you might want to try is "Spheres", which is loosely Death Metal but with strange jazzy beats and off-kilter rhythms. They got routinely slaughtered for it by all their D.M fans but it's pretty clever & interesting stuff IMO....

SCAR SYMMETRY is more like Proggy/Melodic Death Metal. It's not really pomp, but is a mix of Death Metal (some growling vocals) & aggressive guitar, with layers of keyboards & some lush melodic chorus lines (that verge on AOR at times). It's an interesting mix, made better by a stunning vocalist (who's now sadly left the band) & given your tastes I'd definitely expect you to love "Holographic Universe". If you get chance go check out their tune "Morphogenesis" on Youtube, which is the most commercial tune on the CD....
