No. 44: SepticFlesh, ‘The Vampire From Nazareth’ – Top 21st Century Metal Songs
If you've never heard the symphonic blackened death metal mastery of SepticFlesh, we advise you take a trip to the band's homeland of Greece. Or you could just check them out this October on their first ever North American headlining tour. Either way, SepticFlesh's 2011 album, 'The Great Mass,' displays some of the best songwriting in modern metal.
'The Vampire From Nazareth,' like every track on 'The Great Mass,' features the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, which provides a both beautiful and demonically atmospheric touch to the album. If you love heavily symphonic and purely brutal metal, do yourself a favor and listen to 'The Vampire From Nazareth.'
