Septicflesh – Titan

SepticFleshTitanAlternative

Titan is symphonic metal band Septicflesh’s ninth full-length album that continues with the brutal symphonic death metal assault of its predecessors. It is more of the same epic-ness from Septicflesh and shares the same pros and cons as before. War in Heaven opens the album with an epic metal track with plenty of orchestration augmenting the grandiose feel of the album. Seth Siro Anton’s death metal vocals are particularly brutal and add to the aggression and power of Titan. The drumming is quite thick and heavy throughout, as on Burn with its plethora of blast beat drums. Operatic male and female vocals, particularly on Prototype and Dogma, take the music to another level of grandiosity. During the middle of Prometheus, the slow orchestration and angelic female vocals provide an atmosphere apt for the murder of God in heaven—or, at least, something of that magnitude. However, as with my prior experience with Septicflesh albums, and generally most death metal, the second half of the album loses its punch as the effect of epic-ness wears off. Septicflesh fans, and symphonic metal fans, should enjoy Titan. It definitely has a grandiose atmosphere due to the orchestration and enough metal to keep the metalheads happy.
