Septic Flesh’s seventh full-length release has turned the extreme metal community on its collective head. A maddening blend of black metal, death metal, gothic rock, and symphonic music, COMMUNION quickly leaves bands like Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth in its ravenous wake. The album was recorded with the aid of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir and produced by metal luminary Fredrik Nordström (At the Gates, Opeth, In Flames). Melodic, atmospheric, and psychotic, the Greek quartet has established itself as one of the premiere names in innovative dark metal.
