Customer Reviews

Very impressed.

When it comes to Fleshgod, you know what to expect. But, honestly, I think this album impressed me more than expected. I feel like with this album their goal wasn't to be so fast, but to put together a more well crafted album. Now don't get me wrong, there are still some pretty fast parts on here, but I sincerely do believe they focused more on the musical aspect and the outcome is great. Their previous effort "Labyrinth" was good, but I feel like this one is A LOT better. Plus the production is better. It's easier to distinguish what's going on. Great job guys! I picked up my copy yesterday along with Obscura's new album, and it is safe to say I am very pleased.

Fleshgod's Darkest Effort to Date

I'll be honest, I was a little disappointed that this album didn't deliver the speed of Agony or Oracles this time around. I hope that's something they haven't decided to do away with entirely, but just felt it wasn't right for the album. It always added a fun and energetic feel to the music.

Either way, this album delivers death metal brutality in a way I'm not sure I've ever experienced. The structure of the songs are some of the best I've heard from Fleshgod. "Mitra" and "A Million Deaths" are personal favorites so far. The way the symphonic elements have been arranged with the sometimes drudging pace of the songs have created, in this listener's opinion, one of the darkest albums I've heard in a few years. This is sometimes offset by the once again solid operatic vocals offered by Veronica Bordacchini, but in some instances even she adds to the madness.

I miss the blistering speed and hope it returns in some capacity in future releases, but even so I am very happy with what I got here. Also, the symphonic tracks weren't a bad touch either.

Expectations.

This band has been a beautifully developing one to follow over the years. From hearing their first works, to their first album heavily using orchestra pieces, they have satisfied my musical tastes with each release. Not to mention their live performances and the fluidity in which they can perform their masterpieces. I can not wait for this album to grace my ears.

Biography

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With a sound that doesn't so much find the worlds of classical and death metal merging as it does colliding, Italian band Fleshgod Apocalypse are one of those rare bands whose music is actually more brutal and over the top than their name. Based out of Rome, Italy, the band came together in 2007, making a splash right away with a demo and tours with bands like Napalm Death and Hate Eternal. The band eventually brought their technical wizardry to Willowtip Records who signed them and released their...
