Italian symphonic death metal quintet Fleshgod Apocalypse announced they will soon begin tracking their fourth full-length record and follow-up to 2013’s Labyrinth. Tracking for the album, which will be titled King, will begin this summer at Kick Recording Studio in Rome with Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, etc) in charge of mixing and mastering. Drummer Francesco Paoli comments:
“The new album is called ‘KING’. It’s a concept album. It took longer this time but I believe it’s a sign of more maturity and determination within the band. We can’t release something mediocre just because it’s enough to keep things rolling. I believe the music world requires people to work harder on their material and that is what Fleshgod Apocalypse is set to do in this ‘new middle age’ era. At the end of the day, quality is the final goal, right? That’s why our expectations in our music and writing become higher every time we approach the stage of creating a new album. We always follow our feelings and try to express our state of mind through our music, and what we have in our hands now is the darkest Fleshgod album ever. As for the concept behind the album, all I can say right now is that I think we need a good psychiatrist!”
The album is slated for an early 2016 release via Nuclear Blast.
