Official press release: Italy's brutal/symphonic horde, Fleshgod Apocalypse, have signed a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records. With only two releases, Oracles (2009) and the Mafia EP (2010), Fleshgod Apocalypse have already become one of the most talked about bands in the underground. Their unique blend of technical death metal with a symphonic elements have quickly made them a favorite with fans and critics alike. Now, after a successful US debut touring alongside Suffocation and The Faceless, the band are currently wrapping up work on their upcoming second full-length album. Expect a release sometime around this year's "Summer Slaughter Tour." "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 US 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! See you on the road!" www.myspace.com/fleshgodapocalypse
