Septicflesh (formerly known as Septic Flesh) are a symphonic death metal band that were formed in Athens, 
March, 1990 by Sotiris Vayenas (guitars), Spiros Antoniou (bass and vocals), and Christos Antoniou (guitars),
and quickly released a debut EP, Temple of the Lost Race in December, 1991.
The band recorded their first full-length album Mystic Places of Dawn
in April 1994 at the Storm studio with the co-production of Magus Wampyr Daoloth.
For the releases of The Ophidian Wheel (1997) and A Fallen Temple (1998) a female vocalist, Natalie Rassoulis, was added.
The group split up in October 2003, and after the breakup, its members moved on to different or existing projects.
In 2007, the band reunited for a seventh full-length CD, for French record label Season of Mist.
According to guitarist and composer Christos Antoniou, the release would feature a full orchestra and a choir,
totaling 80 musicians and 32 singers.Septic Flesh finalized the new album, Communion, in Studio Fredman in Sweden;
it was released in April 2008. By this time the band had changed its name from Septic Flesh to Septicflesh.
According to guitarist Christos it looks better and states a new phase in the band.
On September 10, 2009, the band announced that they had begun work on a new studio album,
tentatively planned for release in the beginning of 2011, entitled The Great Mass.



  1. Wonderful album...this and Sumerian Daemons are their top moments in my humble opinion.

    1. I couldn't agree more with your comment my friend although i want to give a try to their two first albums. (Still have not managed to listen them thoroughly)

  2. i am voting for Revolution DNA(2003)...this is my favorite one!

    1. That had an "experimental" feeling and a more "soft" sound of course.Probably many of their old fans must have hated this one.
