Conspiracy Of Silence Fleshgod Apocalypse finally found the right balance between symphony and brutality with Agony. Building off of the groundwork they laid on the realm-shattering debut Oracles, FLESHGOD have honed their style and technique, and have crafted a monstrous offering of blazing technical death metal on this EP. The result is nothing less of outstanding as neither the death metal aspects nor the classical aspects of the music compromise their integral physiognomy in the least bit making this one of the most triumphing releases of this sort of symphonic extreme metal. Does not apply to gift orders. Fleshgod Apocalypse are one such band that has managed to take the fury of technical death metal and done something off- center with it, fusing the blistering heaviness with symphonic undertones and neoclassically-derived riffs. As my intuition may have suggested to me, Fleshgod Apocalypse are continuing to distinguish their sound from the legions of other tech death acts out there, creating an epic suite of music that could be said to be death metal’s response to classical music.

Virtually the entire course of brutality on ‘Agony’ is accompanied by gorgeous symphonic arrangements, and here they are far from a gimmick; they easily add a whole new dimension of sound and intensity to the band. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.
Not bad, and it works, but nothing amazing either.
But Fleshgod Apocalypse is on a whole other level. To compare them to other bands, this band really strongly strikes me as being a combination of Behemoth and Belphegor, but with occasional power metal clean vocals and tons of keyboards and piano thrown in.
The songs are fairly uniform, without any out of place songs thrown in. Apoclaypse Even before they went symphonic, Fleshgod played amazing death metal on a grand scale.
Adding to Cart…
Fleshgod Apocalypse Rome, Italy. This is the shit. Forum user Forum password. With speed that rivals Origin, and very thought out parts for the orchestra and guitars, this album is just top notch. For me, death metal is a style of music that I can at least respect, but it usually takes an added dimension in the music for me to really enjoy it. I bought this CD simply on the reviews people had given the band, and they were not pm3 at all.

Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Christiano Trionfera’s orchestral writing here is on par with that of a neoclassical, or film score writer, and the orchestration manages to capture both an added sense of peril, and beauty to what the band does.
Throught the majority of the album the keyboards, the riffing, and even the singing sounds impostion it is being very heavily drowned out by the incessant blasting; the drums are mixed WAY too loudly on this album. This is music that you can truly feel so old-worldly cultured in the mosh pit.
Fleshgod Apocalypse – Agony – Music

To steer them away from the sounds of similar acts however is some surprisingly melodic neoclassical guitar solos that soar overtop the brutality, and the vocal duties are shared between the fairly typical growls of Tommaso Riccardi, and the higher register ‘power metal’ wail of bassist Paolo Rossi, whose highly melodic, quasi-operatic way of singing is always a refreshing change of pace from the rest.
Also, try not to put too much importance on the ridiculous song titles. Customers who bought this item also bought.
The album remains really brutal but on “The Forsaking” a classical piano run is the dominant force having wrested control of the death metal and walks it on a leash but on “The Oppression” death chews that leash off and furiously regains its foothold. Evil Or Die Fest.

While certainly good, Agony does leave quite a bit of promise and potential unfulfilled. They really are a group of visionaries, and with a bit more improvement in some key areas, their flesshgod effort in this style could really be something special.
Yazz Ahmed guests and we feature “The Music of” tribute to French musical legends. I personally really enjoy every song on this cd.
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. It can certainly fleshhgod said that the sheer speed and complexity of the music can make it a tough egg to crack for those who are not used to such technical music. As a matter of fact, I don’t take a liking to most of the traits of the over-compressed and sterile nature of the production – it’s professional for sure, but I would’ve enjoyed Agony much more if it had a more natural sound. Building off of the groundwork they laid on the realm-shattering debut Oracles, FLESHGOD have honed their style and technique, and have crafted a monstrous offering of blazing technical death metal on this EP.
The symphonic element to Fleshgod Apocalypse has always been appreciated in the past, but at least on the frse, it almost felt more like a gimmick, rather than a full-fledged part of the music.
