Two titans of symphonic death metal will join forces this summer for the most momentous event of the season: the Conquerors of the World festival tour! Co-headliners SEPTICFLESH (Greece) and Fleshgod Apocalypse (Italy) will join brutal death metallers Hour of Penance (Italy) and Canadian occultists Necronomicon for an international-flavored bill of musical extremism.
“We are thrilled to announce that we will be returning to North America with our blood brothers in Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hour of Penance and Necronomicon,” comments SEPTICFLESH. “This promises to be a night in darkness to be remembered as we prepare to unleash our colossal new album ‘Titan.'”
“We are proud to announce that this summer, we’ll be your guests for the Conquerors of the World North American tour,” adds Fleshgod Apocalypse. “Once again, we’ll be joining forces with Greek symphonic metal legends SEPTICFLESH. This will be a year after the outstanding experience that brought us across Europe in 2013 together, and will be just after our Australian run with them in May. As co-headliners, we will present a huge one-hour set list — the longest one we’ve ever played in your countries! We’ll be sharing the stage with our Italian brothers Hour of Penance and Necronomicon as well. The apocalypse is set for the end of June, so don’t miss it!”
Tour dates will be announced shortly, so stay tuned!
Still riding high from the success of their critically acclaimed 2011 album “The Great Mass,” Hellenic metallers SEPTICFLESH will release their new full-length album, “Titan,” on June 24 via Prosthetic Records in North America. The new CD consists of 10 songs that were recorded once again at Devasoundz Studios in Athens, Greece and in the Czech Republic with the collaboration of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra And Choir. From there, the album was mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by acclaimed producer Logan Mader (Gojira, Fear Factory, Cavalera Conspiracy). Fans can pre-order the album here.
Fleshgod Apocalypse released their latest record, Labyrinth, this past August via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio and hones in on the band’s unique traits, giving fans everything they could hope for and more. Colin Marks (Origin, Kataklysm) created the cover artwork, as well as several pieces for a massive inlay. “The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it,” stated vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi recently. “We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through manic and meticulous research, managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are.”
