In early 2008 the band started to perform live in the Italian and European underground scene supporting bands like Behemoth, Origin (7), Dying Fetus, Hate Eternal, Suffocation, Napalm Death and many more.
In May 2008 the band entered 16th Cellar Studio again to record its first full-length album, 'Oracles'. In December that same year the band decided to part ways with Neurotic Records and inked a deal with Willowtip Records. 'Oracles' was released in April 2009 and the band started an intense show schedule all over Europe. First touring in support of God Dethroned in the Balkans, then with Vader and Marduk on the Funeral Nation Tour, then finally they covered the UK and EIRE territories with their first headlining tour.
The 'Mafia' EP was recorded, mixed and mastered again at 16th Cellar Studio in January 2010 and released by Willowtip Records. The release marked a big step forward for the band in every way. Right after the end of the recording session the band embarked on another European tour supporting Suffocation followed by a headlining tour of Russia.
After some Festivals and gigs in the summertime, the band flew overseas for their first tour of the US/Canada dubbed the Decibel Defiance Tour 2010. The tour took place in October/November 2010 with [Invalid Artist], Faceless, Through The Eyes Of The Dead and Decrepit Birth. Before the end of the year the band played several more gigs in Europe. 2011 opened with the Bonecrusher Fest, a European tour with Dying Fetus, Keep Of Kalessin, Carnifex, Annotations Of An Autopsy and Angelus Apatrida.
In November of 2010, the band signed a worldwide deal with Extreme Management Group, Inc. and began writing their second full length album. In May of 2011 the band signed a worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records and began wrapping up work on this album. During this time Francesco Ferrini, the pianist and orchestrator who has worked with the band from the beginning, joined Fleshgod Apocalypse as full-time member. This enabled them to have even more grand symphonic arrangements on 'Agony', taking the bands signature sound to new euphoric heights.
In 2011 'Agony' is released. The mix and mastering was done by Stefano “Saul” Morabito from 16th Cellar Studios. Marco Hasmann once again crafts an intricate depiction of the bands concept with his cover art.
