Det italienske symfoniske death metal band Fleshgod Apocalypse udgiver den 16. august deres tredje fuldlængde album ”Labyrinth” igennem Nuclear Blast Records.
I en pressemeddelelse for albummet, beskrives albummet og bandet således:
“The new album hones in on the band's unique traits giving fans everything they could hope for and more.
Colin Marks nailed it once again making an incredible cover art work, as well as several neoclassical pieces of art for a massive inlay.
The mixing and mastering work of Stefano "Saul" Morabito is absolutely amazing. "Labyrinth" sounds clear and powerful and of course it
has to be considered one of his best jobs ever, so expect his name will be even stronger in the near future!
Make no mistake, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE are now one of the leading forces in the extreme metal scene!”
Trommeslageren Francesco Paoli udtaler følgende om albummet:
“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.”
Frontmand Tommaso Riccardi tilføjer:
"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.”
