The Faceless Prepare For Tour, Comment On New Album
October 18, 2010
Los Angeles based progressive death metallers, The Faceless, have been extremely busy as of late preparing to embark on a massive North American fall tour as direct support to Suffocation while completing work on their much anticipated third full-length release.

Now with the writing process for the new album in full force the group prepares to spend the fall on the road as part of Decibel Magazine's "The Decibel Defiance Tour" featuring Suffocation, Through The Eyes of The Dead, Decrepit Birth and Fleshgod Apocalypse.

Michael Keene (guitars) checks in with the following report in regards to their new album and upcoming touring schedule: "After the 'Summer Slaughter' tour wrapped up, we were left with a very refreshing sense of energy and change. It was great to get out and play such killer shows with all of those talented bands and the experience has super charged the excitement of writing new material and pushing ourselves to new musical boundaries as a group and individual musicians/performers.

"The writing process for our upcoming third record is in full swing and it's a very exciting, fulfilling musical journey so far. We'll be debuting a new song on our upcoming tour with Suffocation, which I feel is a great example of the direction in which the new material is headed. Expect a very progressive and vibey record, that maintains the high-energy that you would expect of The Faceless and even more thought provoking lyrical content than ever before.

"We'll be hitting the road in just a few days to wrap-up the touring cycle for 'Planetary Duality'. We'll be locked up in my recording studio in Los Angeles once we get home. You can expect lots of studio updates and blogs along the way. This will be the last tour we'll be doing until we complete the recording of our new record. With that said, we want to make this a special tour for fans who may have seen us on the 'Summer Slaughter' tour. Therefore, we'll be playing more old songs than usual and debuting a brand new song for you! Come and meet us at a merch table and we hope to see you all soon."

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 2007
HOME TOWN: Roma, Perugia
MEMBERS:
Francesco Paoli - Guitars
Vocals
Cristiano Trionfera - Guitars
Paolo Rossi - Bass
Francesco Struglia - Drums

Fleshgod Apocalypse was born in April 2007 from the ashes of Death Metal band called Tyrannic Ethical Reconstruction. This new band was originally conceived as a side project featuring Francesco Paoli (Vocals, Guitar), also in the Death Metal band Hour Of Penance and ex-member of T.E.R., Francesco Struglia (Drums), also in Promaetheus Unbound and ex-member of T.E.R., Paolo Rossi (bass) ex-member T.E.R. Ever since the beginning Fleshgod Apocalypse' musical orientation showed the need for a second guitar player. The intention of combining two genres like Death Metal and Classical music, the wired riffing as much as the need of two heavy rhythmic guitars in the slow tempos made it a neccesity to find a new member to extend the line-up. Within a few days Cristiano Trionfera, also in Promaetheus Unbound, joined the band as lead guitarist.

After a month of practicing the band recorded its first promo in July simply called Promo ’07, only meant to interest record labels. This one contains two tracks of technical Death Metal mostly influenced by Classical music. Inspired by bands like Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Vader, Deeds Of Flesh, Nile, Morbid Angel but certainly also by the likes of J.S. Bach, L. Van Beethoven, F. Listz, F.Chopin and R. Wagner. The band sounds sick, fast, brutal yet with a classical approach.

Words go beyond blasphemy or gore. The lyrics are a in general an anti-religious declaration and speak about the abuse of power and all the psychic and physical acts of tyranny performed in name of religion. A menace of true redemption to all those who commit acts of paedophilia or hold the life of people with deception or hind and sometimes impede the medical research and scientific progress.

The recording also contains a piano intro written and performed by Francesco Ferrini. Promo’07 has been recorded, mixed and mastered at 16th Cellar Studio with the producer Stefano "Saul" Morabito, and its two tracks are also contained in the 4-way split “Da Vinci Death Code” distribuited via Spew Rec. After the promo release, the band performs some live dates to spread his name in the Italian and European underground scene.

In May 2008 the band enter again 16th Cellar Studio to record its first album, “Oracles”. In the meanwhile, due to unexpected working problems, Francesco Struglia is forced away from the recording session and his place is took by Hour Of Penance’s drummer Mauro Mercurio who give a significant help to the band handling the drums parts. As like as the promo, Fleshgod Apocalypse relies again on the precious skills of Francesco Ferrini who give his contribution managing the orchestral and piano parts.

During the mixing sessions (July 08), Francesco Struglia solved his working burdens so he can rejoin the band for the upcoming live activity concerning also some festivals, supporting bands like Behemoth, Origin, Dying Fetus, Hate Eternal, Suffocation, Napalm Death and many more.

“Oracles” is now ready to hit the stores and Fleshgod Apocalypse is also preparing the upcoming tours supporting the album.
