Italy's Symphonic Death Metal horde,FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, will return in August with their new epic masterpiece entitled “Labyrinth”.
The new album hones in on the band's unique traits giving fans everything they could hope for and more.

"Labyrinth" will be released August 16, 2013 in Europe and August 20, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast.

Francesco Paoli commented:
“Labyrinth is going to be THE album for Fleshgod Apocalypse. It's the perfect combination of all our strong points with the best production we've ever had.

It's definitely the most Fleshgod thing we've ever thought with the most Fleshgod riffs, lyrics, melodies, drumparts, solos, etc...We went deep inside the core of this music, we broke it, and we finally unleashed these eleven songs. I want to be honest, it needed so much work and time to come up with this but now I'm like: "ok, next time will be tough to reach this point!". Honesty and quality pay, always, and all of you guys supporting the band DESERVE THE BEST.
You might think that i'm overrating it just because it's our "child" but, trust me, this album is fuckin' dangerous.
Just take your time, listen to it and get lost into the LABYRINTH.”

Tommaso Riccardi commented:
"The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it. We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticolous research, we managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are. We're sure you will be stunned by this as much as we are.”

Here's the tracklist:

1 KINGBORN
2 MINOTAUR (THE WRATH OF POSEIDON)
3 ELEGY
4 TOWARDS THE SUN
5 WARPLEDGE
6 PATHFINDER
7 THE FALL OF ASTERION
8 PROLOGUE
9 EPILOGUE
10 UNDER BLACK SAILS
11 LABYRINTH

Colin Marks nailed it once again making an incredible cover art work, as well as several neoclassical pieces of art for a massive inlay.
The mixing and mastering work of Stefano "Saul" Morabito is absolutely amazing."Labyrinth" sounds clear and powerful and of course it has to be considered one of his best jobs ever, so expect his name will be even stronger in the near future!

I had a feeling the album would be released at the same time as their US tour when they announced that they were recording and then the tour got announced afterward.

Pretty damn stoked.

Seems like a cool concept. This is one of those bands where I'm going to be worried every time they release something now, but it'll probably end up being a great record like the last one.

I am quite hopeful for this. Can't wait to finally see them live as well.

The concept sounds cool and the title track being last is usually a pretty promising sign in my experience.

Can't wait! Saw them at Summer Slaughter the year they played and had them all sign their last cd. All really cool guys.

New song: "Elegy" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKzmT-VhrnA

There's nothing wrong with the music, but the production is really bad. I'll have to relisten to that a few times to understand what just happened.

I personally find the production great. It's a more balanced refined version of Agony. Guitars are more presentable and overall sound between the guitars, bass, vocals, keys drums is massive and epic which for a band of this caliber is perfect!

After listening to the new track a lot of times, I think I love it.

I dig the new track. The production is kind of messy, but it's still a pretty badass song with a killer piano line.

Wow. These guys really aren't my style, but that song is pretty darn good. Will certainly check out the album.
