Fleshgod Apocalypse Reveals New Album "Labyrinth" Details

Italy's symphonic death metal horde Fleshgod Apocalypse will return this August with a new album entitled "Labyrinth."

The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio. Colin Marks (Origin, Kataklysm) also created the cover artwork, as well as several pieces of art for a massive inlay.

"Labyrinth" will be released August 16th, 2013 in Europe and August 20th, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast. Drummer Francesco Paoli commented:

“Labyrinth is going to be THE album for Fleshgod Apocalypse. It's the perfect combination of all our strong points with the best production we've ever had. It's definitely the most Fleshgod thing we've ever thought with the most Fleshgod riffs, lyrics, melodies, drum parts, solos, etc...We went deep inside the core of this music, we broke it, and we finally unleashed these eleven songs. I want to be honest, it needed so much work and time to come up with this but now I'm like, ‘ok next time will be tough to reach this point!’ Honesty and quality pay, always, and all of you guys supporting the band Deserve The Best. You might think that I’m overrating it just because it's our ‘child’ but, trust me, this album is fuckin' dangerous. Just take your time, listen to it and get lost into the Labyrinth.”

Vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi added: "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 meticulous 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.”

WAY too excited for this. Lucky enough to be acquainted with these fine gentlemen. Fantastic musicians, and better people. "Agony" actually won my AOTY in 2011. Can't wait to hear this!
