A month ago, Fleshgod Apocalypse pummeled us with the new track "Sugar." Now they've unleashed the next single, "Carnivorous Lamb," off their new album, Veleno.

The opening moments are deceiving, regaling in wondrous symphonic splendor. But, Fleshgod Apocalypse play death metal, and it isn't long before their chopping guitar work and bombastic arrangements grind you down.

Listen to "Carnivorous Lamb" above.

"How's the saying? Never judge a book by its cover? Well, that's the point of this song. We are constantly surrounded by fake people and opportunists; we can't stand it anymore. We can't stand the hypocrisy and unending lament of these assholes," vocalist/guitarist/drummer Francesco Paoli asserts in his assessment of "Carnivorous Lamb."

"It's a strategy," he continues. "Even the most adorable and inoffensive lamb can become the fiercest of the wolves when something menaces its interests. Lack of foresight and scarce maturity drive these people overwhelmingly; they will be left behind, tasting life for what it is, where their "spoiled" certainties become the deepest doubts of existence and nobody will hear their call anymore."

Veleno will arrive on May 24 through Nuclear Blast. Pre-order your copy here and see Fleshgod Apocalypse at the dates listed below.
