Fleshgod Apocalypse post lyric video for Minotaur

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 2nd August 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Italian symphonic death metal overlords Fleshgod Apocalypse has recently posted the lyric video for Minotaur (The Wrath of Poseidon), which is taken from their upcoming album Labyrinth. The video can be viewed below.

The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studios in Italy’s capital city Rome. Labyrinth portrays the band’s uniquely terrifying sound, making it what the band believe to be their masterpiece. Colin Marks (Kataklysm, Origin) created the spectacular artwork for the album as well as several piece for one massive and epic inlay. Labyrinth will be released 19th August via Nuclear Blast.

Commenting on the album, vocalist and guitarist Tommaso Riccardi said:

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.

Labyrinth track list:

1 KINGBORN
2 MINOTAUR (THE WRATH OF POSEIDON)
3 ELEGY
4 TOWARDS THE SUN
5 WARPLEDGE
6 PATHFINDER
7 THE FALL OF ASTERION
8 PROLOGUE
9 EPILOGUE
10 UNDER BLACK SAILS
11 LABYRINTH

Fleshgod Apocalypse will also be embarking on a UK tour in October.

Anaal Nathrakh release statement about apparent UK tour with Fleshgod Apocalypse

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 22nd June 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Following the recent announcement that Anaal Natkrakh are touring with Fleshgod Apocalypse later this year, the band have stated that they had not confirmed they could play the dates. The full statement was posted on their Facebook page and as is as follows:

For anyone hoping to see us in the UK in October: It appears we have been announced for a string of UK dates with Fleshgod Apocalypse in October. We did NOT agree to play these shows. Repeat: at no point have we ever said that we would play these dates, or that Mick would even be in Europe at the time. We are currently looking into whether we can do them for the sake of those who may have already bought tickets. But the dates have been announced without our participation or consent, and we cannot guarantee at this stage that we will be playing. We thought it best to let people know the situation as quickly as possible rather than waiting for a final confirmation. Further information will follow as soon as it is available.

Fans appear to be pointing the blame at The Nazgul Agency who are responsible for the booking of the tour while promoters are pointing the finger at Nuclear Blast for announcing the tour before everything was properly set in stone. Obviously there had been a mix up in communication down the line somewhere and both fans and promoters alike are advised to not jump to any conclusions until the situation has been solved.

Fleshgod Apocalypse set to return in August with new album plus UK tour dates announced

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 22nd June 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Italian Symphonic Death Metal horde, Fleshgod Apocalypse, are set to return in August with their new epic masterpiece entitled Labyrinth. The new album hones in on the band’s unique traits giving fans everything they could hope for and more. Labyrinth will be released August 19th, 2013 in the UK via Nuclear Blast. Drummer Francesco Paoli commented:

Labyrinth is going to be THE album for Fleshgod Apocalypse. It’s the perfect combination of all our strong points with the best production we’ve ever had.  It’s definitely the most Fleshgod thing we’ve ever thought with the most Fleshgod riffs, lyrics, melodies, drumparts, solos, etc… We went deep inside the core of this music, we broke it, and we finally unleashed these eleven songs. I want to be honest, it needed so much work and time to come up with this but now I’m like: “Okay, next time will be tough to reach this point!”. Honesty and quality pay, always, and all of you guys supporting the band DESERVE THE BEST.

You might think that I’m overrating it just because it’s our “child” but, trust me, this album is fuckin’ dangerous.

Just take your time, listen to it and get lost into the Labyrinth.

Tommaso Riccardi (vocals, rhythm guitar) also added:

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 meticolous 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.

Labyrinth’s tracklist is as follows:

1 KINGBORN
2 MINOTAUR (THE WRATH OF POSEIDON)
3 ELEGY
4 TOWARDS THE SUN
5 WARPLEDGE
6 PATHFINDER
7 THE FALL OF ASTERION
8 PROLOGUE
9 EPILOGUE
10 UNDER BLACK SAILS
11 LABYRINTH
