2014 is shaping up to be a killer year for international bands touring Australia, with this tour being one of the most anticipated yet. Greeks Septicflesh and Italians Fleshgod Apocalypse, two of Europe's symphonic metal heavyweights, will grace Australian shores in May, 2014 together for the first time.
As if Windrider's triumphant review wasn't enough for you fellow metalstormers, here's another reason to check out the upcoming Fleshgod Apocalypse release, Labyrinth; the band's label, Nuclear Blast Records, just posted a link on its facebook page for the full streaming of the album, which will be out on August 16th.
Italian metallers Fleshgod Apocalypse have been kind enough to release a second song off Labyrinth for streaming. The chosen track now was "Minotaur (The Wrath Of Poseidon)" and you can stream the lyric video for it right here. How do you rate it? Don't forget that the release of the new album is near: August 16th, 2013 in Europe and August 20th in North America via Nuclear Blast.
The time has come to hear a new Fleshgod Apocalypse song, folks. The band has just premiered their brand new tune "Elegy" from Labyrinth. How does the follow-up to Agony sound like? You can finally hear a taste on the video below. Enter the labyrinth and tells us what you think about its musical passages.
We already knew that Italy's symphonic death metal horde Fleshgod Apocalypse was working on a new album but today we find out a lot more about it. The group will return in August with their new epic entitled Labyrinth. According to them, "the new album hones in on the band's unique traits giving fans everything they could hope for and more." Feast your eyes on the cover artwork created by Colin Marks below which is a labyrinth!
Yes, the successor to Agony and third Fleshgod Apocalypse album is in the works, and more, it is also planned to be released this coming August via Nuclear Blast Records worldwide. The Italian symphonic death metal act is currently working on it with producer Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio.
Italian death metal/symphonic band Fleshgod Apocalypse has released their newest video for the song "The Forsaking", which was directed by Salvatore Perrone and the band. You can watch the result below.
In a short Facebook update by the tour mates, Canadian technical death metallers Archspire, it's said that US brutal/technical death metallers Decrepit Birth have officially dropped off the bill for the upcoming The Decimation Of Europe Tour, featuring Polish technical death metallers Decapitated and Belgian brutal death metallers Aborted amongst others.
However, replacement for Decrepit Birth is set to be Italy's brutal/symphonic death metallers Fleshgod Apocalypse.
Polish technical death metallers Decapitated will return to North America for an annihilating headlining run this fall sponsored by MetalSucks.net in support of their new album Carnival Is Forever. The album was released on July 12th and had the highest first week sales of the band's career with over 2,100 copies sold.
Decapitated guitarist Wacek "Vogg" Kiełtyka checks in about the upcoming 26 shows in the U.S., México, and Canada:
"I'm here to tell everybody that the tour starts the 30th of September and we will play the biggest cities through the 30th of October. This tour is together with death metal beasts Decrepit Birth, new death metal visionaries from Italy Fleshgod Apocalypse, and two new acts Rings Of Saturn and The Haarp Machine. It will be a great death metal party for sure!!! DO NOT MISS THIS!!!!!!!! On this tour we will play every song from the new album Carnival Is Forever together with old classics."
"The Egoism", a brand-new track by Italian brutal/symphonic death metal act Fleshgod Apocalypse can now be streamed over at Nuclear Blast USA (in the player at your upper right).
The official music video for "The Violation", another new track from Fleshgod Apocalypse, can still be watched over at this location.
"The Egoism" and "The Violation" come off the band's upcoming album, entitled Agony, which is set to be released on August 9th in North America and on 19th in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records. More album details were previously reported over here.
Italy's brutal horde, Fleshgod Apocalypse, has revealed the cover art for the band's Nuclear Blast Records debut Agony, due on August 9th.
Marco Hasmann, who worked with the band on the previous releases, Mafia and Oracles, crafted the record's intricate 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."
Italian brutal metallers Fleshgod Apocalypse have signed a worldwide deal with German record label giants Nuclear Blast Records. And now, after their tour with Suffocation and The Faceless, the band's wrapping up the last work on their upcoming, yet untitled album, which will be released by this summer around the start of the Summer Slaughter Tour.
Guitarist/Vocalist Tommaso Riccardi comments: "We're really excited to start working with such a renowned and professional label. It's a great chance for the band to express itself in the best way, counting on this kind of support. For us it's like a brand new start. We surely can improve our work, touring much more and finally reaching every continent as we always wanted to do. Many tours are already planned or on the way to being organized. We'll start with North America and Europe and then Asia/Oceania, South Africa and maybe in Central/South America. We can't wait to hit US again this July-August with the 'Summer Slaughter Tour' 2011. It's an honor for us to be on this tour and a great opportunity to play live some new tunes! See you on the road!"
