Fleshgod Apocalypse’s New Album Could Be Fit for a King
Terrific news, folks: Italy’s master of symphonic death metal, Fleshgod Apocalypse, have announced a new album! It’s be called King, and it’ll be out in early 2016 on Nuclear Blast. While there’s no new music to hear yet, you can start to get stoked by this statement from drummer/songwriter Francesco Paoli…
“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!”

You’ll know more about the album as soon as we do.
