Italy’s Symphonic Death Metal horde, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, will 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.
Francesco Paoli (drummer) 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: “ok, 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) 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 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.”
