Italian symphonic/technical death metal act Fleshgod Apocalypse unleashes another savage attack on their third full-length Labyrinth
. The symphonic elements are on a more epic-scale than ever with elaborate piano and violin pieces galore. The more straightforward metal elements are better written than on Agony
with more solos and breaks from the orchestration. Labyrinth
would be much higher on my list if it wasn't for the muddled production and noticeable decline in Tomasso Ricardi's vocals. Doesn't touch Agony
in my eyes, but Labyrinth
is still another quality entry in Fleshgod's catalog.
