The Skinny: The time has come to unveil the first single from “Titan,” the long-awaited new album by Greek metal virtuosos Septicflesh. Take a listen to “Order of Dracul” below. In addition to the new music, Septicflesh have also revealed the striking cover artwork for “Titan,” completed by vocalist/bassist Seth Siro Anton (as featured above). The album – the band’s Prosthetic Records debut – is scheduled for release in North America on June 24th.
The band says, “‘Order of Dracul’ is the first taste of the new album. It is a bombastic song with colorful classical orchestration. The title refers to Vlad Tepes, the notorious prince of Wallachia.” Metal Hammer says the following: “Pumped full of all the imperious splendor that coursed through 2011’s ‘The Great Mass,’ ‘…Dracul’ packs a pantheon of different textures, from its parping intro, through doomy, deathly passages, inhuman blasting, wind-in-your-back strings and a few other unexpected surprises.”
