You already know what we think of Labyrinth, the new album by the almighty Fleshgod Apocalypse, because surely you have read Andy Synn’s laudatory review of it. And surely you have already heard “Elegy”, the first track from the album to be released for streaming. And surely you will now listen to the second song that just appeared on YouTube as a lyric video, “Minotaur (The Wrath of Poseidon)”. Surely.

Labyrinth will be out on Aug. 16 in Europe, Aug. 19 in the UK, and Aug. 20 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. Listen to “Minotaur” next and please share your thoughts in the comments.


  1. The song is like an epic anthem to a desperate loss in the maze. The opening chorus preceded by the piano with his slowness is another brilliant idea. Massive, clear, furious and tragic. The entire instrumental work are such the perfect marriage with the symphonic aspect of the track. The growl is perfect as well. The lyrics too, the pictures on the video too and here we are with the final chorus again. Infernal and merciless. So, this is memorable for his death metal ferocity and the symphonic dramatic stain carved in the music. These guys have surpassed themselves I think, seriously, this is the grandiosity!

  2. i literally shit my pants out of pure epicness when the title of this article
    then i proceeded to shit out my lungs when i actually listened to it
    a little early to be saying this, but AOTY material right here folks, we are on the verge of something great

  3. God that was horrible. Shitty mixing, the drum kicks and the guitar chugging are warring for the attention. At least you can hear some guitar in this song in comparison.

    Also, that spoken word part. That was laughably pathetic. Did they get some gruff hobo to mumble that to save money?

    I’m sorry, I loved Agony, but this is just horrible

  4. it’s a pretty damn cool song 🙂
