FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE – New digital single ‘The Fool’ released!

Posted on by Oran

After a crushing performance at last years Bloodstock Festival Symphonic death metal kings Fleshgod Apocalypse have been busy recording their fourth studio album ‘King’  which Overdrive can confirm will be released on February 5th, 2016 via Nuclear Blast. But in the mean time, why not get a taste of what the Italians have to offer from the first single taken from the album, simply titled “Fool”!


To kick off 2016 with a bang, the Perugia, Italy-based group have just released the first single from the record entitled ‘The Fool’ which you can hear below!

Fleshgod Apocalypse commented on the track:

“‘The Fool’ is one of the craziest songs off the album, and we felt like it was the perfect way to let people approach our new work. It’s a song without compromises – and because of the character it is about, we had the chance to get into a profound matter that concerns us all.”


‘King’ was tracked at Kick Recording and 16th Cellar studios in Rome – and was mixed and mastered by world-renowned producer Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, At The Gates, Arch Enemy) at Fascination Street Studios, Sweden.
