“THE EGOISM”: FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE HAVE YOUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART

A friend of ours recently posited that Fleshgod Apocalypse are to Death Cult Armageddon-era Dimmu Borgir as Hate Eternal are to Morbid Angel; when I asked him to clarify, he said, “Fleshgod Apocalypse is like Dimmu Borgir on good coke.”

I can get behind that description. It was certainly at the forefront of my mind while listening to the Fleshgods’ new song, “The Egoism,” which is now streaming here (player is in the upper right hand corner). I’ve yet to hear a FA song I didn’t like, but this might be my favorite yet, and its incorporation of orchestral elements does certainly blow anything Dimmu — or any other band like-minded band — have done in some time. And I have a special feeling about Agony… if the band is already on the map, I could see this recording upgrading their status from being a pin someone stuck in that map to being an actual location printed on that map. Agony could be for them what From Mars to Sirius was for Gojira.

Headbang here, then agree with me wholeheartedly in the comments section. Agony comes out August 9 on Nuclear Blast. And don’t forget that Fleshgod Apocalypse will be on the MetalSucks-sponsored Summer Slaughter tour, along with The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Darkest Hour, Dying Fetus, Six Feet Under, Oceano, As Blood Runs Black, Powerglove, and Within the Ruins. Get dates here.
