Fleshgod Apocalypse – Putting the Venom in their Music
By Sara Lambeth

Since 2007, Fleshgod Apocalypse has brought the world of theatre and classical music to the infernal metal sphere. Their albums depict adventures on the king's court to tales of philosophical Greek mythology. Their fifth album, "Veleno," meaning venom in Italian brings a concept true to cultural ties and music that will melt your soul. This record set to release May 24th, 2019, features real orchestral ensemble, classical percussionist, baroque choir, a full string quartet and so much more!

 "Veleno," however , is without guitarist/vocalist Cristiano Trionfera and vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi. Riccardi and Trionfera both left in 2017. Drummer Francesco Paoli decided to assume the role of vocals and guitar and adding guitarist Fabio Bartoletti (Deceptionist) and David Folchitto (Stormlord) on drums for their live performances.  

To promote their upcoming new album, Fleshgod Apocalypse went on a co-headlining tour with Hypocrisy. The luck of the Irish brought the "Death Is Just The Beginning" tour to Mesa, Arizona on St. Patrick's Day. DaBelly's publisher, Dave Schwartz and I sat down with Francesco Paoli to talk about their new album, pasta, wine and earning his St. Patrick's Day beads.

Special thanks to Fleshgod Apocalypse, Paoli, Nuclear Blast Records and Club Red.
