Ancient Roman metallers EX DEO have released a brand new music video!
The new music video, for the track The Roman, is taken from the band’s upcoming third studio record, The Immortal Wars, which is scheduled for release later this month. Speaking about the new video, the band comments, “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!”
Speaking to us earlier this month, frontman Maurizio Iacono elaborates further, “we’re going to release a video soon for the song The Roman, it’s the last track on the record. The video is going to be really crazy and it’s over the top and that was the idea of this, to first release the album and then release this big visual. You have to release a visual with Rome, you can imagine it, which is cool, but this visual really brings it to life and we feel that we wanted to invest in that than rather go out on tour.”
