SEPTICFLESH Release Music Video For ‘Martyr’ Track
January 5th, 2018

Athens, Greece-based symphonic death metal group Septicflesh have filmed a music video for the track ‘Martyr’. Directed by long-time collaborator Jon Simvonis, the clip can be viewed below.

The band commented: “We are welcoming the new year by releasing a second video from our latest album, Codex Omega – this time for the song, ‘Martyr’. Once again the clip is directed by Jon Simvonis, blending the music of Septicflesh with Kendo, which literally means ‘the way of the sword’. It is a battle of sword and spirit. The ultimate goal of the fighter is to become superior to his own previous self.”

Director Jon Simvonis added: “We really had an awesome time filming Septicflesh while they were delivering an explosive performance for the ‘Martyr’ video! No wonder, why this band nails it on every stage that they set foot on.”

Septicflesh issued tenth full-length studio album Codex Omega on September 1st, 2017 through Season Of Mist (excluding North America). Prosthetic Records have scheduled North American release for the same day.

Codex Omega has been made available for streaming in its entirety and can be accessed via the YouTube link below.

The outing was produced by Jens Bogren and the band, with Borgen also responsible for mixing and mastering at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden.
