Fleshgod Apocalypse Posts New Album "Agony" Cover Artwork

Italy's Fleshgod Apocalypse has revealed the cover art for the band’s Nuclear Blast Records debut "Agony." Marco Hasmann, who worked with the band on the previous releases "Mafia" and "Oracles," crafted the record’s cover design.

The band comments, “The album cover is about the eternal struggle of mankind; we’re condemned to live facing our evil side, which dwells in every one of us. We are like tied to the ground, forced in chains that can't be broken, so the man in the cover is representing all humanity and its eternal agony, knowing that it's almost impossible to liberate ourselves from the obscurity of our nature. Unless we decide to admit to ourselves who we are and face our doom, that would be the only way to free our kind and rise to an higher conscience, someday.”

Wow, it looks sick. I can't wait for the new album.
...also, not to be a douche, but there's a typo with their previous albums. Stuff like that just bugs me.
