Italian technical death metal band FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE are to begin recording their forth full length studio album this summer. Named King, the album is tentatively marked for release in early 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Tracking will take place at Kick Recording and 16th Cellar studios in Rome Italy. Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, SOILWORK, KATATONIA, DEVIN TOWNSEND) has been named as one of the producers of the record. Artwork will be created by influential cover artist Eliran Kantor.
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE drummer Francesco Paoli had this to say on the album:
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!
