Italian orchestral-death metal juggernauts, Fleshgod Apocalypse, have released their new album, Veleno, via Nuclear Blast Records. Order the album in various formats here.
In the video below, Francesco Ferrini discusses the goal of one day working with a full symphonic orchestra, and what that would bring to the band's sound.
Veleno is making an impact on a global scale with critics and fans alike. The record was released on May 24 and has since debuted on music charts around the world, including #5 Hard Music in the United States, #15 Rock in United Kingdom and in the Top 100 in Germany.
"We are speechless. For real, no words can express completely our gratitude for your support and dedication. This is our highest position in the USA and our first time charting in other countries. We worked hard on this album, now it's yours. Time to play this music live in every corner of the planet and meet you personally, we owe you much and we'll give it back. We love you." - Francesco Paoli
The group recently unveiled the ninth part of their album trailer video series, in which frontman Francesco Paoli talks about the addition of David Folchitto (drums) and Fabio Bartoletti (guitars) to their live shows, and what it has been like working with the two musicians.
Italian for venom, Veleno marks Fleshgod Apocalypse’s first record in three years, since the release of their critically acclaimed record King (2016). The “metal part” of Veleno was recorded in Rome, Italy at Bloom Recording Studio and Kick Studio with long-standing collaborator Marco Mastrobuono, while the “orchestral part” - the ensembles - were tracked at Musica Teclas Studio in Perugia. Fleshgod Apocalypse then took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. The entire production of Veleno took, according to Paoli, about three months. Artwork for the album was created by Travis Smith.
