Francesco Paoli on working with director Giovanni Bucci“I met Giovanni Bucci a couple of years ago, while collaborating on his own band ODDKO. We soon became good friends, so we started talking about having him as director for FLESHGOD’s new videos. He is a true visionary, with amazing directing and production skills. He’s been making music videos for bands like KORN, and he also has a shining career in the movie industry. We all agreed that he would’ve been the key to a huge step forward for us, visually and artistically, especially on a video like this, which was also extremely complex to produce and shoot. The result is on your screen now, and it’s better than any description. Just hit the play button and enjoy.”

Italian for ‘venom’, ‘Veleno’ marks FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE’s first record in 3 years, since the release of their critically acclaimed record ‘King’ (2016). The ‘metal part’ of ‘Veleno’ was recorded in Rome, Italy at Bloom Recording Studio and Kick Studio with long-standing collaborator Marco Mastrobuono, while the ‘orchestral part’ – the ensembles – were tracked at Musica Teclas Studio in PerugiaFleshgod Apocalypse then took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen (VOLBEATTHE BLACK DAHLIA MURDEREPICA) at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. The entire production of ‘Veleno’ took, according to Paoli, about three months. Artwork for the album was created by Travis Smith (AVENGED SEVENFOLDOPETHKATATONIA).

Francesco Paoli on ‘Veleno’“Today is the day. A first taste of our new album, ‘Veleno‘, is finally available for you all. No words can describe how excited we are and how long we waited for this moment. What you see is the harvest of three years of sweat, revolutions, intense emotions and extreme challenges. We proved ourselves to be stronger than ever, despising compromises, setting the bar higher no matter what. The album is massive to say the least. Every song is a unique piece, literally alive and breathing. Can’t wait for you guys to hear the rest…”.
