Quite an interesting effort and concept by Ex Deo's recent release, headlined by the front man of Kataklysm; Maurizio Iacono. Basically this is metal album with melodic and symphonic tones. I find myself wishing there were more dialogue and intriguing draw ins to capture my attention more as most of time I feel like I'm just listening to a melodic-death album with less-than par vox. Nonetheless the album is different than most stuff coming out nowadays so I give it props for attempting to create out the box, plus I love Roman History. A solid release for 2012 but it could be so much better if I was in control of the production and compositions hehe.
