Codex Omega is their 10th album and came out in Sept 2017 - a metal album with no bad songs. Every member did a great job, songs are very well written, symphonic orchestration is perfectly composed and executed, and even the cover art is very good.
And yes, mixing and mastering are almost perfect, too - it's not easy to mix successfully elements from extreme metal and classical symphonic (Jens Bogren from Sweden).
