The Italian masters of dark musical extremes - FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE - will make their long awaited debut in New Zealand with two headline shows this June:

Since forming in 2007, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE have the metal world by the throat - releasing 4 albums, relentlessly touring the globe, and amassing a legion of loyal followers. Their most recent album KING (2016) is being hailed as one of the essential metal albums of the last decade.

Combining the extremity of Death and Black Metal with bombastic, powerful and challenging orchestral arrangements FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE takes the listener on a dark journey of epic proportions.

“Fleshgod Apocalypse’s music is orchestral music, blurring the lines between classical refinement and metallic bombast” states frontman/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi. “[King] is much more than the sum of its parts,” says Riccardi. He continues - “I think we reached the perfect balance between all the aspects of our music. Besides that, I really believe that we simply wrote our best songs so far. Every riff is mind-blowing and the way we managed the arrangements and song structures is great; I really feel that everything is in the right place, when I listen to it.”
Drawing on diverse musical inspirations - from film score composers such as John Williams, Hans Zimmer, and Howard Shore through to bands such as Carcass, At the Gates and Morbid Angel - there are no limitations on Fleshgod Apocalypse’s creative ambitions.

In the live arena FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE are unparalleled - powerful, immense and grandiose; they must be witnessed to be believed. Tickets on sale now for the pinnacle of classically-inspired death metal.
