Official press release: Italian symphonic-death metal masters Fleshgod Apocalypse, will tentatively release their new album King in early 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records. Tracking will start this summer at Kick Recording and 16th Cellar studios in Rome. Mixing and mastering will be handled by the world-renowned Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, At The Gates) at Fascination Street studio in Sweden later this year. In addition, acclaimed contemporary artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Iced Earth) will handle all the artwork and iconography for the album. Francesco Paoli drummer/songwriter comments: "The new album is called King. It's a concept album. It took longer this time but I believe it's a sign of more maturity and determination within the band. We can't release something mediocre just because it's enough to keep things rolling. I believe the music world requires people to work harder on their material and that is what Fleshgod Apocalypse is set to do in this 'new middle age' era. At the end of the day, quality is the final goal, right? That's why our expectations in our music and writing become higher every time we approach the stage of creating a new album. We always follow our feelings and try to express our state of mind through our music, and what we have in our hands now is the darkest Fleshgod album ever. As for the concept behind the album, all I can say right now is that I think we need a good psychiatrist!"
