Italian orchestral-death metal juggernauts FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE are about to unleash their fifth record, Veleno, on May 24th via Nuclear Blast Records. After presenting some trailers revealing more background info about the new record’s creation, the group has launched a live video of “Healing Through War,” which is taken from their bonus Blu-ray entitled An Evening in Perugia, that will be included in the album’s CD Digipak edition available at the Nuclear Blast U.S. and EU online stores. Check out the video above.
Italian grandmasters of orchestral death metal Fleshgod Apocalypse are finding spontaneity rewarding on new album, Veleno. Over the past four albums – previous album, King (2016), floored fans and critics alike – the Francesco Paoli-led trio have planned every step, discussed every note, and ensured every salutation to Paganini, Bach, and Mozart was met with an equally brutal death metal equivalent. On Veleno, which is Italian for ‘venom,’ they needed a change of approach (and pace). To achieve this, Fleshgod Apocalypse distanced themselves from distraction – lineup changes, tours, and the frustrations of day-to-day life – unboxed the songwriting process, and let the inspiration flow freely. On Veleno, they’ve matured, blended more efficiently their musical vision, and walked away with 11 songs that sound like a new band with an unsatiable prey drive.
