This album was unbelievable!

This album was unbelievable. I think I randomly found Fleshgod Apocalypse because of a Facebook ad, and I'm glad I did. I immediately became a fan of the band, and got "Mafia" soon after. It was even better than I expected, but I was a little disappointed that it was only 5 songs long. They were 5 great songs, though.

Until recently Italy was not considered a hotbed for death metal - and it still may not - but Fleshgod Apocalypse is doing their best to bring the area to the attention of metalheads everywhere. Along with country-mates Hour of Penance, Ade, and Logic of Denial there is some serious noise coming from one of Europe's most beautiful countries.
Mafia sounds similar to Oracles but at first listen the addition of clean, almost operatic vocals are noticeable. Francesco Paoli has been tasked with drumming (as well as providing some guitar and vocal work) on the Mafia EP as opposed to his role as strictly guitars and vocals. The musical direction is brutal death metal with orchestral elements present. There are 3 original death metal tracks, an unbelievable cover of At The Gates' classic "Blinded by Fear" and an outro instrumental track.
At just under 24 minutes this EP was sufficient to hold fans over during the gap between Oracles and Agony. Ironically it also served as a bridge to span the gap between the two.
