Italian brutal/symphonic horde FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE has inked a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records. The band is putting the finishing touches on its second full-length album for a summer release.
With only two releases, "Oracles" (2009) and the "Mafia" EP (2010), and a successful U.S. debut tour alongside SUFFOCATION and THE FACELESS under its belt, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE has already become one of the most talked about bands in the underground. Their unique blend of technical death metal with symphonic elements has quickly made them a favorite with fans and critics alike.
"We're really excited to start working with such a renowned and professional label," commented guitarist/vocalist Tommaso Riccardi. "It's a great chance for the band to express itself in the best way, counting on this kind of support. For us it's like a brand new start. We surely can improve our work, touring much more and finally reaching every continent as we always wanted to do. Many tours are already planned or on the way to being organized. We'll start with North America and Europe and then Asia/Oceania, South Africa and maybe in Central/South America. We can't wait to hit U.S. again this July-August with the 'Summer Slaughter Tour' 2011. It's an honor for us to be on this tour and a great opportunity to play live some new tunes!"
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE is:
Tommaso Riccardi - Lead Vocals, Guitars

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE in 2009 parted ways with drummer Francesco Struglia and replaced him with Francesco Paoli.

Featuring members of HOUR OF PENANCE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE plays death metal with a "classical" approach; inspired by CANNIBAL CORPSE and SUFFOCATION, and infuenced by J.S. Bach and L. Van Beethoven.
