Fortune favours the bold or so the saying goes. Unlike anything that has really come out of the Metal scene Fleshgod Apocalypse are masters of innovation. Taking an ambitious idea of moulding two polarising genres into a symbiosis of aweinspiring inventiveness. Arguably their most ambitious work conceptually as well as musically, King sees a milestone under the band’s already intimidating back catalogue. Their latest paradoxical combination of Death Metal and Classical makes for a beautiful, cinematic and absolutely enrapturing listen. We were lucky enough to be able to sit down with just one of the many maestros at the Fleshgod Apocalypse helm Tomasso Riccardi. Outlining the albums immediate concept as well as its tertiary metaphorical commentary on society, we uncover what King truly stands for and why it is one of the most daring musical compositions to come out of Death Metal yet.
