Italian symphonic death metal act Genus Ordinis Dei released a video clip for the song "You Die In Roma," which is available in the player above. The song is featured on the band's latest album "Great Olden Dynasty," which is available via Eclipse Records.
“The song You Die in Roma is about a gladiator who enters the arena” states vocalist Nick K. “We wanted to describe his feelings, thoughts, and how gladiators really felt in that period. Many were deprived from their families, with some treated as property, and used to provide entertainment for the crowd. We also decided to keep the name “Roma” in Italian, first to remark our Italian origin and second, to honor the greatness of the roman empire.” Drummer Richard Meiz recalls filming of the video, “We shot this video at the very last minute, after coming back from almost forty days on the road to play the remaining Italian gigs of the Delirium World Tour with Lacuna Coil. We were extremely pumped to play our hometown show in such a beautiful venue in front of our families and closest friends."
