Awesome Italian symphonic death metal act Fleshgod Apocalypse are currently working on their third full-length with producer Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio. The album is due in August 2013 via Nuclear Blast records worldwide.
As if the sheer existence of this album wasn’t enough to get you pumped, guitarist and vocalist Tommaso Riccardi had this to say:
“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.”
Pianist Francesco Paoli added:
“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.
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.”
