The California death metal engineers from Flesh Consumed are readying the release of their third full-length, "Hymn For The Leeches."
Set for official detonation later this year via Unique Leader Records, the offering is being recorded in several locales and boasts the smoldering lineup of Corey Athos on vocals, Shaune Kelley (Dim Mak, ex-Hate Eternal, ex-Ripping Corpse) on guitars, Andrew Guthrie (ex-Monstrosity) on bass, and Shane Elwell (Images Of Violence, Oppressive Force, VBT) on drums.
Guest vocal slots are taken by Matti Way (Pathology, Abominable Putridity etc.), Steve Tucker (ex- Morbid Angel, Warfather etc.), Mallika Sundaramurthy (Parasitic Extirpation, Castrator, Abnormality etc.) and more.
"Hymn For The Leeches" serves as the follow-up to 2010's traumatizing "Ecliptic Dimensions Of Suffering."
"I am so grateful to be working with this team," comments Athos, "I came to Andrew in the conception of Hymn For The Leeches knowing his previous work. Shane blew me away when I saw him play... a beast! And Shaune is the mastermind behind the music of this album. With every release, Flesh Consumed evolves. I think no one record sounds the same from the next and this new record will be no exception, musically and lyrically. The music is heavy, powerful, with dark/evil melodies and searing solos. The lyrics I wrote in a very dark time in my life and it shows. Subjects about power, hate, and dominance are interwoven with beautiful evil music."
Stay tuned for further "Hymn For The Leeches" details, including cover art and release dates, in the coming weeks. More...
Corey Athos of Flesh Consumed has issued the following statement about the band's upcoming album and current lineup:
"I was put here in King City to write the heaviest album on earth. There is nothing in this town but me, some recording equipment, a guitar, a pen, and a bar in which I am banned for life. The new album will be FC's 3rd full length album and will be released on Unique Leader Records.
"With 'Ecliptic Dimensions Of Suffering,' I was in a very good mood, which in turn I tended to write more of the fast, technical songs. The lyrics were influenced by HP Lovecraft, Clive Barker, Poe, and Ray Bradbury. They were stories conjured up in my mind to take the reader on a journey. After that musical and lyrical approach had been executed, I felt that I had to do something different with FC.
"When Flesh Consumed was started, our goal was to write heavy, grooving songs with great structures. I am going back to those roots with the new album. The lyrics are real, which is an avenue I had not taken in lyrics; only in poetry have I talked about my thoughts and surroundings. When I was younger, there were a few albums which spoke to me and helped me get through rough times. Now it's my turn to give that back. I want to be able to have the fans relate to these lyrics. They are extremely fucked up and express the darkest realms of my psyche.
"More importantly than the lyrics is the music. It will be grooving and heavier than a motherfucker. This will be the soundtrack to the Apocalypse, Armageddon incarnated through sour notes and tones. In order to do that, I need the right people. Here are some of the new additions to Flesh Consumed. I will announce the rest of the band at a later time. More...
