  • Description

    This limited collector's art book includes music scores by Christos Antoniou, and artworks, photographs and paintings from Seth Siro Anton for SEPTICFLESH of course, but also bands like Paradise Lost, Moonspell, Exodus, Kamelot and Caliban among others. It is printed on high quality paper with a full colour cover and a dust jacket with different image that unfolds to a 98cm x 55cm poster with cold foil printing. This edition includes "The Great Mass" on CD and on DVD in 5.1 sound. The DVD also includes a documentary on the making of "The Great Mass" with interviews with the band members about the recording with the FILMharmonic Orchestra of Prague, the lyrics and the meaning of "The Great Mass, the art and visual aspects, the recording process, drums and the production. The second CD is exclusive to this edition and contains the orchestral versions of the following songs, recorded by the FILMharmonic Orchestra of Prague: 1. The Vampire from Nazareth 2. A Great Mass of Death 3. Mad Architect 4. Pyramid God 5. Oceans of Grey 6. The Undead Keep Dreaming 7. Apocalypse 8. Five-Pointed Star 9. Persepolis "Persepolis" originally appears on 2008's "Communion" album. The choirs of its orchestral version are sung in French, and other languages such as Italian and German can be heard on this bonus CD. “The Great Mass” is a new symphonic masterpiece that constitutes a quantum leap in the art of amalgamating orchestral music with Heavy Metal. SEPTICFLESH’s new songs are the audible evidence of guitarist Christos Antoniou finishing his studies of classical composition with academic honours and distinction. The Greeks take the next logical step in following the course they highly successfully set on their celebrated comeback-album “Communion” (2008). “The Great Mass” shows this band at the peak of their evolution over seven full-length releases since SEPTICFLESH’s founding in 1990, in which the band combines massive deadly guitars at the edge of blackness with haunting gothic melodies and cinematic symphonic arrangements. The orchestral parts were recorded with the FILMharmonic Orchestra Prague including full choir and boy soprano. Of course SEPTICFLESH do not neglect their trademark Metal sound: Seth's deep growls complemented by Sotiris Anunnaki's stunning clear vocals are carried by razor sharp riffing and a relentlessly pounding rhythm section consiting of Seth's bass and drummer Fotis Benardo. Renowned producer Peter Tägtgren (DIMMU BORGIR, IMMORTAL) created the massive sound of “The Great Mass”.
