We’re getting truly epic on you this week, with the gargantuan ‘Rome’, the second single from, ‘The Immortal Wars’ the new concept album by Ex Deo:
‘The Immortal Wars’ retells the legendary tale of Hannibal and his Carthaginian army in taking their war with Rome to the very gates of the Eternal City and humiliating every general sent against him, before ultimately being crushed.
Ex Deo frontman Maurizio Iacono says of the song and the video:
“The Roman is a song celebrating the roman soldier for his discipline, his loyalty and his will to victory, the most fierce war machine ever assembled not by individual conquest but by teamwork, they changed the world in warfare... this video was filmed in a remote area in Belgrade, Serbia with a great team who put a lot of hard work and heart into it, we tried to be as historical accurate as we could with what we had at our disposal, it’s not to meant to be a reproduction of Hannibal’s last confrontation with Scipio but we flirted with the idea. Enjoy!”
‘The Immortal Wars’ will be released worldwide on 24 February 2017 via Napalm Records.
