Fleshgod Apocalypse reveals cover art for King

fga_king
Fleshgod Apocalypse is probably one of the most popular Italian metal bands (sorry, Sadist), although not necessarily for the best reasons, as their maximalist, symphonic death metal ambitions aren’t matched by the same level of attention to songwriting as their Western classical inspirations. Still, they press on; King has been under construction for some time, and this cover art (painted by Eliran Kantor) is certainly part of the conceptual backing for the album. When the band revealed this artwork through Facebook, they described the “King” as “…the last stand of integrity and justice in a court infested by traitors, villains, perverts, parasites and prostitutes” and furthermore decried the decay of society’s values and standards. Does this sound familiar? Either way, writing¬†coherent symphonic death metal represents a challenge, and we’ll probably see how it turns out closer to its release date.

    If Emperor is the Roman Emperor of symphonic extreme metal in the shit of battle slaughtering barbarians and the false, Fleshlight Apocalypse is not the king; they are a maggot on the corpse of an executed deserter.

          It’s random, riffless, and sounds like shit. You know a band sucks when Rhapsody of Fire might as well be Bathory in comparison.
