Fleshgod Apocalypse recording new album

Friday, April 19, 2013 1:56 PM PT

Official press release:

Italian symphonic death metal act Fleshgod Apocalypse are currently working on their third full-length album with producer Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio. "We are tracking guitars now, and the result is amazing," commented guitarist/vocalist Cristiano Trionfera. "Stefano is nailing it and we know the album will sound incredibly powerful." For this album the band also used a collaboration of very talented guests, which contributed in making this record a unique piece of art.

Guitarist/vocalist Tommaso Riccardi adds: "The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it. We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticulous research, we managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are. We're sure you will be stunned by this as much as we are."

"It's difficult to recap in a few words all the elements contained in our new work, but we are sure this will absolutely be THE album for us," elaborated drummer Francesco Paoli. "We have spent a lot of time composing these new songs and, even if recordings are not finished yet, we can firmly declare that this material is simply incredible, more mature and definitely a huge step forward from all our previous works. Epic complex harmony, sophisticated touching melodies, a true vocal aggression, photonic grooves and back to articulated riffing... these are just few things you will find in this album. It's fucking quality music, you will see."

The band's as of yet untitled third album is tentatively due in August 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records worldwide.
