This type of morbidly complex backstory is just what you’d expect from Septicflesh, who’s writing is always on par with their music.

Like the Henchmen of the Merovingian, metal warriors with the power of intangibility, Septicflesh can rise out of the abyss whenever they ache for humanity’s destruction. It’s been a few years since they’ve needed a fix and I’m glad they are hungry once again.

I’ve been listening to Septicflesh regularly since 2005 and I am glad to hear them back in true from. I must admit the band lost me after 2011’s The Great Mass. Although, I appreciated Titan (2014) and Codex Omega (2017).  I felt the band had already perfected their darkly symphonic formula. It was time to take that sound in a darker direction.

Septicflesh’s new music video “Neuromancer” from their upcoming album Modern Primitive will be out on May 20th via Nuclear Blast Records.

“Neuromancer” is a performance offering with a cyberpunk bite. It turns out Neuromancer (1984) is a science fiction novel written by American-Canadian author William Gibson. It is considered to be one of the earliest and most prestigious works in the cyberpunk genre. It is the only such novel to win the Nebula Award, the Philip K. Dick Award and the Hugo Award.

The plot of the book is like something out of the Matrix. Man unites with machine and creates a “super-consciousness” form, existing within a cyberworld. This type of morbidly complex backstory is just what you’d expect from Septicflesh, who’s writing is always on par with their music.

Check out this new video by Septicflesh and let this digital reality help you ascent to cyberspace! \m/
