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!
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.
