EX DEO: More New Album Details Revealed

EX DEO the Ancient Roman-themed arsenal led by KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono will enter JFD studios in Dallas, Texas and Montreal, Canada in the fall with producer Jean-Franois Dagenais (KATAKLYSM, MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX, DESPISED ICON) to begin recording its sophomore album, "Caligula", for an early 2012 release via Austria's Napalm Records. According to the band, the CD will feature "the most intense 'epic metal soundtrack' to come out in recent history."

Commented Iacono: "The album will once again have the honor of some elite guest appearances. The band promises an album that will shake the metal scene!"

The artwork and layout for "Caligula" will be handled by classic artist Seth (SEPTICFLESH). Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "I, Caligula", "Burned to Serve the Nocturnal Light", "In War & Conquest/Roma Caput Mundi" and "Teutoburg (The Ambush of Varus) - Part 1".

EX DEO last year completed a North American tour with NILE, PSYCROPTIC and KEEP OF KALESSIN.

"The Final War (Battle Of Actium)", the latest video from EX DEO, can be viewed below. The clip was helmed by renowned director Ivan Colic and producer Stanimir "Staca" Lukic (MOONSPELL, KAMELOT, DEATHSTARS, TYPE O NEGATIVE) in Belgrade, Serbia.

"Romulus", the debut album from EX DEO, landed at position No. 90 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

Released in June 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records, "Romulus" was recorded with producer (and KATAKLYSM guitarist) Jean-Francois Dagenais (MISERY INDEX, DESPISED ICON, MALEVOLENT CREATION).
