‘Monnalisa’ features on the band’s critically praised 2019 album, ‘Veleno, that’s available now from Nuclear Blast. The video was produced by Void n’ Disorder, directed by Giovanni Bucci (KORN) and shot by Francesco Pennica. Full credits can be found in the video’s description on YouTube.

Francesco Paoli says: 
“’Monnalisa’ is truly experimental but, at the same time, one of the best songs we’ve ever written. It stood up amongst the other ‘Veleno’ tracks right from its release, becoming an instant classic for our fans. I believe what makes this one so special for everyone is that the idea of “poisoning”, which is at the very center of our album ‘Veleno’ is connected to love. Even the most noble of feelings can become toxic if we suddenly lose our identity, letting our mind and soul become enslaved to someone else. In the end, we can truly love someone only if we find a way to love ourselves first. This is one of the most meaningful messages hidden inside our album. That’s why we felt the need to emphasize it even more through this video.
When I came up with the concept behind the video, we all agreed that only someone like Giovanni Bucci (KORN, ODDKO), who directed our previous video ‘Sugar’, could have handled it the way we desired. The final result is a cinematic video that looks as good as a high-end fashion film, with incredible production values and unconventional imagery, mostly inspired by the historical heritage of Italian fashion and architecture, while still maintaining some horror aspects.

Italian for ‘venom’, ‘Veleno’ marks FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE’s first record in 3 years, since the release of their critically acclaimed record ‘King’ (2016). The ‘metal part’ of ‘Veleno’ was recorded in Rome, Italy at Bloom Recording Studio and Kick Studio with long-standing collaborator Marco Mastrobuono, while the ‘orchestral part’ – the ensembles – were tracked at Musica Teclas Studio in Perugia. Fleshgod Apocalypse then took the effort over to Grammy-nominated Jacob Hansen (VOLBEAT, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, EPICA) at Hansen Studios in Denmark for mixing and mastering. The entire production of ‘Veleno’ took, according to Paoli, about three months. Artwork for the album was created by Travis Smith (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, OPETH, KATATONIA).
