Italian symphonic-death metal masters FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE have revealed the cover artwork to their upcoming album King. This stunning visualization was created by acclaimed contemporary artist Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH, KATAKLYSM, HATEBREED).

Comments the band:

"This work of art is nothing more than the picture of an old world coming to an end.The author, Eliran Kantor, perfectly interpreted the concept behind the album. The King represents the last stand of integrity and justice in a court infested by traitors, villains, perverts, parasites and prostitutes. In an era that looks more like the Middle Ages than the 21st Century, we felt the necessity to express our indignation for the constant loss of values and our despise for mediocrity and commercial use of superstitions.

The question is, are we sure everything that is 'new' is right? Are we sure we are not losing the perception of what is the real value of things? Perhaps the essence of that King lies inside everyone of us but it's just dimmed by the mist of deceit and (ir)rational superfluity. Perhaps we should all hail the King we have inside."

King is scheduled for release in early 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was tracked at Kick Recording and 16th Cellar studios in Rome, and was mixed and mastered by the world-renowned Jens Bogren (AMON AMARTH, AT THE GATES, ARCH ENEMY) at Fascination Street studio in Sweden.

Drummer/songwriter Francesco Paoli commented recently about the album:

"The new album is called King. It's a concept album. It took longer this time but I believe it's a sign of more maturity and determination within the band. We can't release something mediocre just because it's enough to keep things rolling. I believe the music world requires people to work harder on their material and that is what FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE is set to do in this ‘new middle age’ era. At the end of the day, quality is the final goal, right? That's why our expectations in our music and writing become higher every time we approach the stage of creating a new album. We always follow our feelings and try to express our state of mind through our music, and what we have in our hands now is the darkest FLESHGOD album ever. As for the concept behind the album, all I can say right now is that I think we need a good psychiatrist!"

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE’s third album Labyrinth was released in 2013 via Nuclear Blast. The record was produced, mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio. Colin Marks (ORIGIN, KATAKLYSM) created the cover artwork, as well as several pieces for a massive inlay included within the album.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE have also announced that they will return to North America for a headlining tour sponsored by Metal Injection this February! Joining them are fast rising extreme metal conjurers CARACH ANGREN, along with Candlelight recording artist ABIGAIL WILLIAMS.

Comments FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE:

"We are super stoked to finally return to the US and Canada! To celebrate the release of our upcoming album King, we are going to play a special show for you. Lots of new elements and features will be presented during an extended set, which will include songs from Labyrinth and several classics!

Also, it will be great to share the stage with our dutch brothers from CARACH ANGREN, and the crazy American black metal act ABIGAIL WILLIAMS. We already know it's going to be a blast! See you there and hail to the King!"

CARACH ANGREN adds:

"We are very thrilled to return the horror to the USA & Canada! After bringing Death to the Phantom Ship in Florida we will set foot on mainland for the entire month of February. Our first visitation last year was met with your incredible support and now we will finally bring This Is No Fairytale alive to you, embedded in well known chapters from our previous horror stories."
