Fleshgod Apocalypse unleash new video single, “Pendulum”

Italian symphonic death metal act Fleshgod Apocalypse returns with their first new music in years with the release of their latest single “Pendulum.”

The fresh tune also signifies the band’s first musical activity since frontman Francesco Paoli was involved in a severe mountain climbing accident in 2021. The tragedy left Paoli fighting for his life, and he has undergone surgeries since then. “Pendulum” was inspired by Paoli’s harrowing ordeal.

This is the first song we release since my ‘dance’ with death, back in August 2021. It’s obvious that such a life changing event would have affected our music,” says Paoli. “It took a toll on me, physically and mentally, and sharing my experience is also part of my healing process. Pendulum is just the opening chapter of a bigger story, which is yet to be told…

“Pendulum” was mixed and mastered by Grammy-nominated producer Jacob Hansen (known for his work with Volbeat, Epica, Arch Enemy), and the official music video, directed by Martina L. McLean (known for her work with Ghost, Oceana), can be streamed below.

Regarding the clip, Paoli adds, “The music video, realized by visionary Italian director Martina L. McLean, turned my unfortunate incident into a monumental visual experience, an awe inspiring blend of obscure symbolism, surreal architectures and nightmarish mythological creatures. It perfectly portraits the struggle and the desperation of that day, a day of defeat… but also the day of my rebirth.”
