Italian orchestral-death giants Fleshgod Apocalypse have revealed the next single, “Carnivorous Lamb”, from the band’s forthcoming, highly-anticipated album, “Veleno”, that’s due on May 24th, 2019, from Nuclear Blast Records.

Fans can stream the new track via a lyric video below.

Commenting on the new single, Francesco Paoli says: “How’s the saying? Never judge a book by its cover? Well, that’s the point of this song. We are constantly surrounded by fake people and opportunists, we can’t stand it anymore. We can’t stand the hypocrisy and unending lament of these a**holes. It’s a strategy. Even the most adorable and inoffensive lamb can become the fiercest of the wolves when something menaces its interests. Lack of foresight and scarce maturity drive these people overwhelmingly; they will be left behind, tasting life for what it is, where their "spoiled" certainties become the deepest doubts of existence and nobody will hear their call anymore”.

Italian for “venom”, “Veleno” marks Fleshgod Apocalypse’s first record in 3 years, since the release of their critically acclaimed record “King” (2016). The “metal part” of “Veleno” was recorded in Rome, Italy at Bloom Recording Studio and Kick Studio with long-standing collaborator Marco Mastrobuono, while the “orchestral part” - the ensembles - were tracked at Musica Teclas Studio in Perugia. Fleshgod Apocalypse then took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, The Black Dahlia Murder, Epica, etc.) at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. The entire production of “Veleno” took, according to Paoli, about three months. Artwork for the album was created by Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, etc.).
