Nuclear Blast Records has announced the signing of EX DEO, the new band of KATAKLYSM mastermind Maurizio Iacono. According to a press release, "the whole band concept is based on the history of the Roman Empire and will surely please all devoted KATAKLYSM followers worldwide, but also fans of pagan/viking metal will surely dig this! EX DEO will also appeal to all metal fans who are into monumental movies and series like 'Gladiator' or 'Rome'. Needless to say that both Nuclear Blast and Maurizio Iacono are very excited to start working on this unique concept. EX DEO is the new epic soundtrack to glory!!"

Comments Maurizio: "It is in my blood, I've been contemplating this new band for years and the time has come. EX DEO — a full band inspired by the Roman Empire — has finally arrived and it’s gonna be monumental! I am proud today to announce the signing with Nuclear Blast. Prepare for the rise of Rome in 2009!"
