5.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-Dropping Orchestral Death Metal August 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Agony" by Fleshgod Apocalypse is THE GREATEST symphonic death metal album of all time. Now I'm sure a lot of Septic Flesh fans will issue with that, since Septic Flesh is usually the first band on people's minds when they hear "symphonic death metal." Fleshgod Apocalypse have a more straight-forward pummeling death metal style with enough technicality thrown in to keep things interesting but not too breathless or pretentious. Septic Flesh is a bit more artistic and goth-influenced, and while they have their moments, I prefer FA's relentlessness and energy.

The element that separates "Agony" from all the other symphonic death metal releases that have come before is that the symphony orchestra is playing THE ENTIRE TIME. The orchestra is as prominent as the guitars, and could even be considered part of the band. If the two were separated, the death metal would be decent, but not revolutionary, and the symphony would be epic and sweeping but wouldn't stand out. However, blend the two together, and you will drop to your knees in awe. Swooping crescendos, Roto-tiller riffing, piano notes crashing down like hammers, machine gun drumbeats...it's all here. And even though it's death metal savagery through and through, there are changes in tone and drama to keep things fresh. For example, "The Forsaking" spoons some black metal syrup onto an epic doom masterpiece that will break your heart.

I did find the clean vocals to be a bit strained and screechy, but they only make a handful of appearances, so it's easily overlooked. I'm a fan of all things extreme metal but this album makes most of what I've been listening to before sound wispy and pale. This is simply miraculous.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need this album September 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You seriously need to get this album if you like any kind of death metal; it is intense, diverse and beautiful.

With speed that rivals Origin, and very thought out parts for the orchestra and guitars, this album is just top notch.

This is probably one of my favorite albums now, and I'm usually very picky when it comes to death metal.

If you aren't convinced, just go to youtube and watch their latest video, "The Violation", and do yourself a favor and listen to it in HD and with nice speakers, it's completely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars FGA AMAZING! August 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Out of all the Death Metal I have listen to F.G.A. is one of the best that's for sure! They are up there with Nile, Behemoth, and Blood Red Throne. Which in my opinion are the top notch bands of the genre. Everything is this album is amazing from the drums (Of course I'd mention this first.) to the guitar playing, to the intense growling vocals. I really like how on the first few tracks they had classical musical playing in the background; it really shows that they are mixing more with classical and Death metal. I think they did that on this album to show people, that's what they want to do. They've been pushing in the past two album but this one they actually had the music playing in the background. The cool part is when the classical music stops in the background, after the first few tracks, they are still playing like that with their instruments. These guys are amazing. Anyone who loves Death Metal needs to get into Flesh God. A well deserved 5 out of 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this now! August 18, 2011
By Wesman
Format:Audio CD
Wow. This may be the greatest thing I've ever heard. This album is skyrocketing into my top 5 of all time, and it's only been a week. It's that good. Flawless execution and integration of classical with death metal. Both sides are played to perfection and meld perfectly. Every time I listen to it, it just keeps getting better. Each musician is clearly at the top of their game. These guys are touring with Decapitated soon, and even though I feel they should be the headliners, I'm still happy as heck that I'll get to see them live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely devastating music!!! August 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is my first experience with Italy's Fleshgod Apocalypse. I bought this CD simply on the reviews people had given the band, and they were not misdirecting at all. Fleshgod Apocalypse's "Agony" absolutely blisters the ears. It's Symphonic-Blackened-Death metal yes, however, it's done so eloquently and at such an assaultive pace that they really set themselves apart from the other bands performing a similar style. I love Septic Flesh, and Dimmu Borigir. But Fleshgod Apocalypse is on a whole other level. They're frenetic pace combined with soaring orchestral music flowing steadily throughout the music gives a fresh sound and unique look on a style of music that some folks may have considered 'done already'. I cannot pick a favorite song on Agony because they're all VERY good. They have such an amazing sound. The only maybe slight I have is in production and there is some minor 'clipping' on a song or two but it's dismissive really. Considering what is going on musically any detraction from that is really negligible. Fleshgod Apocalypse is on some whole other level with their music, and I highly recommend buying this album!!!! Beautiful, brutal, and powerful metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agony and Ectasy. August 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm afraid I'm late to the Fleshgod party.
I first got into symphonic death metal with Septic Flesh.
I then read about and listened to the new songs from Fleshgod's upcoming album "Labyrinth" and loved what I heard right off the bat.
I previewed both of the groups previous albums and immediately bought both and the ep.
What can I say that hasn't been said already?
The drummer is inhuman.
The symphonic elements mesh perfectly with the extreme parts.
Vocals, bass, production is spot on perfect.
Every song is incredible.
Recommended.
