News: Fleshgod Apocalypse Talk Veleno in New Album Trailer

Italian orchestral-death metal juggernauts Fleshgod Apocalypse have released a new trailer that discusses the writing and recording process for their forthcoming, highly-anticipated new album, Veleno. The band’s 5th record will be released on May 24th via Nuclear Blast Records. You can see the trailer here –

You can pre-order Veleno now from Nuclear Blast, here. If you preorder a digital version, you will get the two singles Carnivorous Lamb and Sugar instantly (from Amazon or iTunes).

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).

    Owner/Editor/Writer/YouTuber - Heavy Metal and reading, two things I have always loved so they are the two areas you will find most of my reviews. Post apocalyptic is my jam and I always have a book on the go and have for decades now. From a metal perspective, age has softened my inadequacies and I now operate with an open mind, loving many bands from many sub genres but having a particular admiration for the UK underground scene. In my other time, when not focused on Dad duties and work, I try to support the craft beer movement by drinking as much of it as I can and you will also find me out on the streets, walking. I love walking, I love exploring new places and snapping nature photos as I go.
