Fleshgod Apocalypse Announce New Album “Veleno”, Debut “Sugar” Music Video


Fleshgod Apocalypse‘s fifth studio album “Veleno” has officially been slated for a May 24th release on Nuclear Blast. A music video for the first single from it, “Sugar“, has been launched below. Additionally, pre-orders for the album are also now available and can be found at

The title of the effort is Italian for ‘venom’ and the band tracked the outing with Marco Mastrobuono in Rome, Italy with the orchestral parts tracked in Perugia, Italy. Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, The Black Dahlia Murder) mixed and mastered the release.

Frontman/multi-instrumentalist Francesco Paoli commented of the effort:

“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…”

Speaking of working with director Giovanni Bucci on this latest video, he offered:

“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.”

A special digipak edition of the album will be released in Europe with a bonus “An Evening In Perugia” Blu-ray, while a digital deluxe edition of the album will include a bonus instrumental version of the record. As previously reported, you’ll soon be able to catch the band out on this North American tour with Hypocrisy and Aenimus.
