Last time we checked, Greek metallers Septicflesh were working on a follow-up to 2008's Communion. Today, the band has issued the following album update:

"The creation of the 10 songs that will appear on the next album of Greek daemons Septicflesh, is approaching the final stage. The musical result can be described as a great mass of emotional death.

One of the dominant elements of the album is the use of the characteristic guitar melodies of the band in a more intense and dramatic way. In combination with the orchestral parts that will surpass everything else that the band has done in the past, the sound resembles to a funeral concerto. Actually, it appears that the whole atmosphere of the album is one step closer to the depths of Hades... Also, as actually Septicflesh is in the wider sense an artistic dark experiment, the nightmarish visual world of Seth Siro Anton that is part of this experiment is going to be expanded towards extremity in order to "dress" fittingly the soundscapes and the new mysterious lyrical thematology.

The recordings will take place in Athens (in Devasoundz studios owned by the band) and in Prague (again with the help of the Filmharmonic Orchestra and Choir of Prague under the direction of Christos Antoniou) from August until the mid of September 2010. The mix will take place in Sweden on October 2010. The band is looking forward to work for the first time with well known producer Peter Tägtgren as previously announced."

Personally i hope they add more variety with the symphonic/choir elements, rather than repeating the same musical phrases over and over.

They certainly don't lack words to describe their work. Let's hope the actual work lives up to the promise. Communion was a really cool album at first, but after a while the patterns are just too obvious.
Still I'm eager to hear this.

I expect originality, especially in the song structures, more long songs like Persepolis.

"a great mass of emotional death."

Yup, sounds like them. Should be awesome.

More intense and extreme, sounds like fun. I'm hoping for more Lovecraft influence.
