EX DEO's video for the song "Romulus" can be viewed below. The clip was shot in March in Belgrade, Serbia with renowned director Stanimir "Staca" Lukic (MOONSPELL, KAMELOT, DEATHSTARS, TYPE O NEGATIVE). Maurizio stated, "First I'd like to say a big THANK YOU for the overwhelming response for the video to the title track, 'Romulus'. Word of mouth has been spreading like wildfire worldwide about EX DEO at the moment! I didn't think there were so many metalheads that were into the concept of the band and Roman history as much as I am. I was anxious to see the response of the people of Italy and Rome today and the media there has accepted us with open arms. Now with their seal of approval we can show the world ROME! Today we present you another defiant track called 'Legio XIII'. It’s a song in honor of Rome's most devastating and lethal Legion ever assembled; the 13th Legion which helped bring Caesar to power."

EX DEO will make its live debut this September/October on the special edition of Europe's biggest pagan/folk metal tour, Paganfest. Co-headlining throughout will be Finland's KORPIKLAANI and Germany's DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER. Additional support will come from Sweden's UNLEASHED, United Kingdom's ALESTORM and Canada's BLACKGUARD. Special appearances will be made by Finland's MOONSORROW and Norway's EINHERJER on select dates.
