FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE: 'Mafia' Cover Artwork, Release Date Revealed

Rome, Italy-based death metal band FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE has completed work on a new EP entitled "Mafia" at 16th Cellar Studios in the group's hometown with producer Stefano "Saul" Morabito. The CD will be released on June 8 via Willowtip Records.

Commented bassist/vocalist Paolo Rossi: "The album focuses on the connection between racketeering and illness. It's like a hidden sickness that consumes us from deep within and that can't be erased unless you decide to wake up and face it.

"'Mafia' is like an octopus whose tentacles grab everyone's free will, and pushes everybody in fear.

"'Mafia' is dedicated to all the people who lost their life fighting against these criminals."

The "Mafia" recording lineup was as follows:

Tommaso Riccardi - Lead Vocals, Guitars
Paolo Rossi - Vocals, Bass
Cristiano Trionfera - Vocals, Guitars
Francesco Paoli - Drums, Guitars and Vocals
Francesco Ferrini - Piano

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE will take part in the "Legacy Of Blood" European tour this March with headliners SUFFOCATION.

FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE last year parted ways with drummer Francesco Struglia and replaced him with Francesco Paoli.

The band's last CD, "Oracles", was recorded in May 2008 at 16th Cellar Studio.

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.
