Fleshgod Apocalypse talk about new single 'Sugar' in first 'Veleno' album trailer
24 March 2019
Italian orchestral-death metal and renaissance revivalists FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE will make their triumphant return this year with the release of their 5th studio album, 'Veleno, on May 24th with Nuclear Blast Records. Now the group has launched the first album trailer, in which they discuss their latest single, 'Sugar'.
Italian for 'venom', 'Veleno marks FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE’s first record in 3 years, since the release of their critically acclaimed record 'King' (2016). The 'metal part' of 'Veleno was recorded in Rome, Italy at Bloom Recording Studio and Kick Studio with long-standing collaborator Marco Mastrobuono, while the 'orchestral part' - the ensembles - were tracked at Musica Teclas Studio in Perugia. Fleshgod Apocalypse then took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EPICA) at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. The entire production of 'Veleno took, according to Paoli, about three months. Artwork for the album was created by Travis Smith (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, OPETH, KATATONIA).
Francesco Paoli on 'Veleno: "Today is the day. A first taste of our new album, 'Veleno, is finally available for you all. No words can describe how excited we are and how long we waited for this moment. What you see is the harvest of three years of sweat, revolutions, intense emotions and extreme challenges. We proved ourselves to be stronger than ever, despising compromises, setting the bar higher no matter what. The album is massive to say the least. Every song is a unique piece, literally alive and breathing. Can't wait for you guys to hear the rest..."
