It was a couple of years ago that Septicflesh brought the “Conquerors Of The World” to this part of the world and in addition to a set by them along with crushing performances by Melechesh, Ex Deo, Inquisition and Krisiun. It was a lot of Metal to indulge in for sure and now its time to do it once again with the “Conquerors Of The World 2014” tour. You can read the press release after the poster which is below.
Two titans of symphonic death metal will join forces this Summer, for the most momentous event of the season: the Conquers of the World Festival 2014! Rock the Nation America bring us some of the finest metal acts in the world with this year’s annual installment. Co-headliners SEPTICFLESH (Greece) and FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE (Italy) will embark on a very special metal crusade this Summer solstice, along with brutal death metallers HOUR OF PENANCE (Italy) and NECROMONICON (Canada)
“We are very thrilled to announce that we will be returning to North America with our blood brothers in FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, extremist’s HOUR OF PENANCE and the Canadian occultists NECRONOMICON,” comments SEPTICFLESH. “This promises to be a night in darkness to be remember as we prepare to unleash our colossal new album Titan.”
“We are proud to announce that this next Summer, we’ll be your guests for the Conquerors of the World Part 2 North American tour,” adds FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. “Once again, we’ll be joining forces with Greek symphonic metal legends SEPTICFLESH. This will be a year after the outstanding experience that brought us across Europe in 2013 together, and will be just after our next Australian run with them in May. As co-headliners, we will present a huge one hour set list; the longest one we’ve ever played in your countries! We’ll be sharing the stage with our Italian brothers HOUR OF PENANCE and NECRONOMICON as well. The apocalypse is set for the end of June, so don’t miss it!”
Still riding high from the success of their critically acclaimed 2011 album The Great Mass, Hellenic metallers SEPTICFLESH will release their new full-length album, Titan, on June 24 via Prosthetic Records in North America. The new CD consists of 10 songs that were recorded once again at Devasoundz Studios in Athens, Greece and in the Czech Republic with the collaboration of the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra And Choir. From there, the album was mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by acclaimed producer Logan Mader (GOJIRA, FEAR FACTORY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY).
FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE released their latest record, Labyrinth, this past August via Nuclear Blast records. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio and hones in on the band’s unique traits, giving fans everything they could hope for and more. Colin Marks (ORIGIN, KATAKLYSM) also created the cover artwork, as well as several pieces for a massive inlay. “The concept of this album is based on the myth of the Labyrinth of Knossos and every character related to it,” stated FLESHGOD vocalist/guitarist Tommaso Riccardi recently. “We focused on the philological aspect in order to represent all the elements of the classic world and, through a manic and meticulous research, we managed to create a metaphor with our times, as the maze can be associated with the endless search for what we really are.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m excited to learn that this tour will be hitting NYC on its third day of the run and while the summer heat will likely be brewing on the streets of our Metropolis, the Metal inferno will surely be hotter inside the Gramercy Theatre that night.
