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 or stream the single now via Spotify. You can also download the new track on either iTunes or Amazon MP3.
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." MetalSucks calls the track "massive," while 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."
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 24 and is currently available for pre-order in the following formats:
- 2CD Digipak (including a bonus disc featuring the album's orchestral score, as recorded by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra)
