Fleshgod Apocalypse are currently gearing up for a tour with Ensiferum over Europe, which sadly doesn’t come to the UK. Despite this, I managed to have a rather long and detailed discussion with front man Tommaso Riccardi before their show in Glasgow a couple of weeks ago.
Amongst other things, we chatted about: the response to the latest album King, the concept behind the albums, their live gear and also the untold story of how Francesco Paoli went from being the front man to being this crazy drummer.
Huge thanks to Sarah at Nuclear Blast for organizing and Tomasso for his time.
Note: There are points where the audio doesn’t quite line up. This is due to the removal of various background sounds.
