Flesh Consumed Issues New Album Update

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.

"Matti Way – Vocals: The godfather of gutturals. I can still not perform the tones he was getting on Cranial Impalement. He has never compromised and continues to inspire vocalists around the world. It is truly an honor to have Matti in Flesh Consumed.

"Alex Colon – Vocals – Percussion/Drums: Flesh Consumed drummer (2006-2008). He drummed and did backing vocals for 'Mutilate, Eviscerate, Decapitate' (debut album) and 'Fermented Slaughter.' Alex has been my right hand man in FC since 2006. When he joined the band we went into overdrive. After he left Flesh Consumed, Alex started Colonize The Rotting as well as helping FC with album layouts, shirt designs, and flyers. We always had a great musical chemistry and it is dope as fuck to be working with Alex again in Flesh Consumed.

"Jesse Carlos – Guitar: The first Flesh Consumed guitarist (2002/2003). Jesse and I have been destroying the stage together since the late 90's. He is a prodigy. Whenever I meet up with him, he's on a new instrument utterly destroying it. I have watched him smash guitars, mics, and bones for over a decade. He is the real deal and I am proud to have this motherfucker back in FC.

"Jerry Rodriguez – Drums: The first Flesh Consumed drummer (2002/2003). He is an insanely powerful and grooving drummer. Every time I come into town and watch him play, he blows my mind. Jerry will be handling the majority of the drums for this album.

"I am back on guitar/vocals as well as handling some bass, piano, and other fucked up instruments for the album.

"Another great addition to the band is Dan Vogtlin as an assistant manager. He has handled all the street team duties and is one of the hardest workers I know. I wish all the best to the musicians involved with 'Ecliptic Dimensions Of Suffering.' They are great musicians and will be doing great things! I will post album updates through Unique Leader as well as the Flesh Consumed sites so keep your eyes peeled!"
