​Fleshgod Apocalypse new NSFW video "Cold As Perfection"

In anticipation of the upcoming album "King" release, the Italian metal band Fleshgod Apocalypse unleashed the music video for the song "Cold As Perfection". It was directed by one of the band’s members Francesco Paoli together with and Salvatore Perrone.

The band commented on the track and video: "King" should be considered an entire unique opera, even though every single song, with its related character, treats a specific and intense aspect of human condition or behaviour. We picked 'Cold As Perfection' for the first video because it faces one of the heaviest and most painful aspects of existence.

The song is about aging and the sad consciousness of losing physical and mental integrity with the passing of time. While we waste our life in the continuous research of perfection, which we know will never be reached, we deliberately sacrifice the splendor of our existence that is composed by an infinite number of imperfect details. We lose ourselves, we lose the time that nature offered us for free and we offend those not lucky enough to have as much as we have. It's scary because it's not an invented story, it's reality and it's inexorable.

For sure the theme is brutal and extreme, that's why it deserved an equally extreme video. We got censored but we don't care. We knew we were going to shake some consciences but it's what the band is set to do. This is who we are. We consider it's pretty pointless to resort to cheap fantasy or obsolete superstitions to make an argument. Reality is THE argument itself and often it's the most horrible one."

"Cold As Perfection" was censored because of the last few frames. The original version of the video is available on Metal Hammer.

The release of the album "King" is set to February 5 via Nuclear Blast Records. Earlier, Fleshgod Apocalypse presented two songs from the upcoming record: the lyric video "Gravity" and the single "The Fool", which the band described as "one of the craziest songs of the album".
