New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Symphonic death metal quartet Genus Ordinis Dei have released a new single and music video for the song 'Halls of Human Delights'. The impressive music video was directed by Steve Saints, and filmed on location at Villa Cavour in Trino, Italy.
'Halls of Human Delights' is the first single taken from their upcoming second full-length album entitled Great Olden Dynasty which will see a global release on November 24, 2017 via Eclipse Records. The album features ten pummeling tracks of symphonic death-metal mastery, including Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) on guest vocals for the song 'Salem'. The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Simone
Mularoni (Luca Turilli's Rhapsody, DGM) at Domination Studio.
"The song is about God's creation of sin, and the fact that sins have been made to seem delicious when committed" states vocalist Nick K. "As more people commit sins, more souls are sent to the prison that God created for them until they are redeemed. We decided to represent the theme of the song in a luxurious but decadent hall as a metaphor to the joy of committing sin, but also to imply the feeling of emptiness when one's sins are redeemed." Guitarist Tommy Mastermind continues, "We decided to revisit this abandoned location we used for a previous photo shoot because it was perfect. We didn't expect any problems, however when we arrived, there were dozens of people shooting an actual movie! The movie production troupe was using our hall as their control room, and just outside they were shooting some horror scenes. We were desperate because that was the only day for us to shoot before departing on tour with Lacuna Coil. Luckily some people on the production crew had heard of the band before, and were sympathetic to our dilemma. They moved their gear to the far side of the room and we literally shot the video while they were shooting their movie! It was a difficult but memorable experience!"
