‘Ophidian Wheel‘, the third installment in a series of five deluxe SEPTICFLESH reissues, will hit the stores on October 25th in a remastered edition including three previously unreleased bonus tracks. Here is the brand new cover artwork, designed by SEPTICFLESH vocalist/bassist and renowned artist Seth Siro Anton:

The Ophidian Wheel

On the Topmost Step of the Earth

On the Topmost Step of the Earth (unreleased mix)
‘Ophidian Wheel‘, the third full-length from SEPTICFLESH after ‘Mystic Places of Dawn’ and ‘ΕΣΟΠΤΡΟΝ’ (both reissued earlier this year), marked a critical turning point in the band’s career upon its release in 1997. On this album, the Greek demons further expanded their musical vocabulary, and added female soprano vocalist Natalie Rassoulis. ‘Ophidian Wheel’ sees the band moving even further into the symphonic-laden and classically-tinged metal arrangements that have become their calling card.
‘Ophidian Wheel’ will be available as a Digipak CD, Grey/red haze double LP (limited to 125 copies), transparent red double LP (limited to 175 copies), and black double LP. All formats, as well as t-shirt and CD+shirt bundles, can be pre-ordered on Season of Mist’s e-shop.
