Armed For Apocalypse Premiere New Track “Forced To An End”

Armed For Apocalypse have scheduled a September 28th release date for their upcoming EP, “Palm Reader“. That four song effort will be a digital release with a new full-length planned to follow in early 2019. A new track from it entitled “Forced To An End” can be streamed below.

Comments vocalist Nate Burman:

“I think we all fall victim to being stuck at a day job that we hate at a certain point in our lives. I remember pacing around work one day feeling trapped somewhere that I didn’t want to be, making someone else’s dreams come true rather than my own. Sure, it’s scary to be financially unstable in order to pursue what you love to do, but it’s absolutely crippling to think about being stuck at a place you’re miserable at just for a paycheck.”

In other news, the group will be back out on the road later this month for a run of shows with The Lion’s Daughter on select dates. Those stops include:

09/24 Bend, OR – 3rd St. Pub

Malformity: “The Rapturous Unraveling” 7-inch Single Coming In Early 2018

Atlanta death metal purists Malformity have joined forces with Boris Records for the January release of “The Rapturous Unraveling”. The 7-inch vinyl delivers a lethal dose of violent old-school death metal that digs deep into the roots of extreme metal.

Those who witnessed the band’s recent return from a decades-long slumber (ushered in by the Lectures on the Apocalypse EP) can attest to the fact that Malformity is as real and relentless as they come.

Boris Records will unleash “The Rapturous Unraveling” on January 13.

Fleshgod Apocalypse Singer Tommaso Riccardi Quits Band – New Line-Up Revealed

Fleshgod Apocalypse announces the departure of vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi from its ranks. The group issues the below statement on the matter:

“Hello friends,

there’s no easy way to say this, so we’ll go straight to the point:

about a couple of months ago, our singer Tommaso left the band for personal reasons. Our separation wasn’t painless, but everybody thought this was the best solution.

Therefore we sat down and tried to figure out all possible scenarios for a band that suddenly loses its frontman. The will to go on and continue this journey was stronger than everything else.

Since the message of Fleshgod Apocalypse goes beyond music itself, we couldn’t let someone who wasn’t there since the beginning be its spokesman.

So the only way to go on was to take a look back at our roots: we decided that Francesco Paoli, our drummer, songwriter, founder and first frontman of the band, was the natural choice for this delicate and also challenging position.

Our mastermind has finally taken back his originary role as lead vocalist and guitarist.

From now on, besides our precious soprano singer Veronica Bordacchini, we’ll have the honour to share the stage with the Italian metal legend David Folchitto (Stormlord, Prophilax) on drums together with the phenomenal Fabio Bartoletti (Deceptionist) on lead guitar. Fleshgod Apocalypse are more focused and determined than ever.

Expect new epic live experiences and, most likely, the darkest and heaviest Fleshgod Apocalypse album that we’ve ever written. We can’t wait to start this new, exciting chapter of our career.

Our friends in South America will be the first ones to witness the new course of the band, with Francesco as our frontman. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Fleshgod Apocalypse“
