Septicflesh

Septicflesh (earlier known as Septic Flesh, the slight name change occuring somewhere near 2008) ranks with Rotting Christ as among Greece's most well known and well-recieved metal bands, and the sound of the two bands aren't that far apart, being a dark gothic metal style. Of the three albums reviewed here, it's their 2003 effort Sumerian Daemons, that stands out as their best, with (mostly) death vocals accompanying crunchy, slow to mid-paced riffing and a nice flair for symphonic dynamics. 1997's Ophidian Wheel has less of the death metal influence and is more melodic, while 1999's Revolution DNA seems slightly out of place, due in some part to a cleaner vocal style that doesn't seem quite right with this band. They disbanded for several years following Sumerian Daemons but then came back and have released three albums since.
