​Septicflesh releases video "Martyr", filmed with kendo fighters

The Greek symphonic black metallers Septicflesh released a new music clip, filmed for the song "Martyr". The video, which demonstrates the techniques of the Japanese martial art kendo, was directed by the Greek scriptwriter and director John Simvonis, who has previously worked on "Portrait Of A Headless Man" for Septicflesh and "Apage Satana" for Rotting Christ.

Septicflesh comment:

"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 adds:

"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."

The song "Martyr" appeared on Septicflesh’s 10th studio record "Codex Omega", which was released in 2017 via Prosthetic Records. The LP was produced by Jens Bogren, known for his works for Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Sepultura, Arch Enemy, At The Gates and many others. "Codex Omega" full album stream is available here.

Tour dates for January, 2918, with Inquisition and Odious
