Symphonic death metal band Fleshgod Apocalypse have announced that they are entering the studio to begin recording a new album. Jacob Hanson (Aborted, Volbeat) is producing, with a tentative release window of Spring 2019.
Frontman Francesco Paoli had the following to say:
“It’s official, we’re finally back in the studio and it feels absolutely great! This past year marked a new era for the band, so we felt the need to look back at our Death Metal roots and, at the same time, to push ourselves beyond our limits, reaching a wider level of variety and influences within the songs. We wanted this album to be fierce but also organic and unpredictable, as if it had a life on its own. That’s why we decided to involve several guest musicians, a full classical string section and even a choir!
“We’re also incredibly excited to work with legendary producer Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, DESTRUCTION, ABORTED, EPICA) for the first time. He’s the man behind so many amazing metal records and definitely one of our favorite producers at the moment. On my side, being back as the frontman also means this is my last chance to record drums on a FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE record and this awareness actually inspired me so much while writing the parts. I really think this album will be a true landmark for me, as a drummer.”
Fleshgod Apocalypse’s last album, “King” was released in 2016 via Nuclear Blast.
