EX DEO have announced a new album!
Titled The Thirteen Years Of Nero, the upcoming album from the Ancient Roman-themed symphonic death metal band is the long-awaited follow-up to 2017’s The Immortal Wars and is scheduled to be released in August this year, via Napalm Records.
Speaking about the upcoming album, frontman Maurizio Iacono says, “when it comes to Ancient Rome, the content is long, rich and extensive, the personalities reflect every society imaginable from just, fair and generous to greed, evil and merciless. The world we live in today was shaped by Rome – it doesn’t take much see it all around you in the simplest things. For this record, it was the proper time to fallow the timeline of one Rome’s most controversial figures, Nero. On this album, we follow him through his thirteen-year journey as emperor of Rome and unveil the true face of one of the world’s most worshiped villains.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released a new music video for the first song lifted from the upcoming release; Imperator. Speaking about the new song and its accompanying video, Iacono adds, “we wanted to release a heavy hitting first single and there was no doubt that Imperator in all of its grandiose aura and power was the choice. On the album, the song introduces Nero as the new Emperor of Rome. For the video, we used acclaimed video director Scott Hansen and together we recreated a dinner party in true Nero style like you never seen before, you have been warned!”
