FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE

Interview with Tommaso Riccardi

By Peter Atkinson

Photos from https://www.facebook.com/fleshgodapocalypse

With their brand new third album Labyrinth, Italy’s Fleshgod Apocalypse have unleashed a masterful mashup of death/black metal brutality and aggression starkly contrasted by orchestral beauty and operatic grandiosity. Tied together by a metaphoric storyline built around the myth of Theseus and his journey through the Labyrinth of Knossos to kill the minotaur, it is an exercise in taking everything over the top — yet it is adeptly executed and avoids the common traps that seem to trip up these sorts of albums time and again. It’s a benchmark of symphonic extreme metal that raises the bar for performance and presentation – and sheer audacity. As the band were preparing to leave for the states to join a tour headlined by Finland’s Wintersun, lead vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi took some time to chat over Skype about Fleshgod Apocalypse’s remarkable musical growth, the trial and error that enabled them to pull off something as ambitious as Labyrinth and their desire to bring their music to the masses, wherever those masses might be.
