FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE - Labyrinth Album Details Revealed
June 20, 2013, 6 years ago
Italian symphonic death metal act FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE will return in August with their new epic masterpiece, entitled Labyrinth, to be released on August 16th in Europe and August 20th in North America, via Nuclear Blast.
Francesco Paoli comments: “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, drumparts, 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.”
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 meticolous 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.”
