Italian grandmasters of orchestral death metal Fleshgod Apocalypse are finding spontaneity rewarding on new album, "Veleno". Over the past four albums, the Francesco Paoli-led trio have planned every step, discussed every note, and ensured every salutation to Paganini, Bach, and Mozart was met with an equally brutal death metal equivalent. On Veleno, which is Italian for ‘venom,’ they needed a change of approach (and pace). To achieve this, Fleshgod Apocalypse distanced themselves from distractions and frustrations of day-to-day life, unboxed the songwriting process, and let the inspiration flow freely. With the best possible production job and real orchestral ensembles—a full string quartet, a classical percussionist, and a baroque choir were part of the process—and guest musicians , Veleno is Fleshgod Apocalypse’s masterwork. After recording, they took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. On Veleno, they’ve matured, blended more efficiently their musical vision, and walked away with 11 songs that sound like a new band with an unsatiable prey drive. Frontman, multi-instrumentalist and mastermind Francesco says: "What you'll hear is the harvest of three years of sweat, revolutions, intense emotions and extreme challenges. We proved ourselves to be stronger than ever, despising compromises, setting the bar higher no matter what. Every song is a unique piece, literally alive and breathing."
