Someone on the webernets called Italy's Fleshgod Apocalypse "death metal Dimmu Borgir", and boy howdy is that ever apt.
The bassist does "clean" or "operatic" singing, just like Vortex.
What's with the makeup? Did they just get out of the coal mine? Or were they busy working on rebuilding the transmission on their Camero?
So yeah they play really tight but I hate the crappy synths they poured over their riffs. And if I don't like it, you know it sucks because I am usually a sucker for that kind of classic inspired crap. It is like some stupid youtube "mashup". Like someone in their basement took someone else's death metal song and sat their with a Korg and layered this crap on top of it for shits and giggles.
Also I'm wondering if the name means something really cool in Italian. Because in English it sounds kinda dumb.
