Maurizio Iacono of Kataklysm has announced his side project Ex Deo is dead.
“Today I decided that Ex Deo and its legions will rest their arms,” he writes online. “We will take an indefinite leave of absence. There’s a good possibility that Romulus & Caligvla be the only sonic assaults that will ever see the light under the flag of Ancient Rome’s lone but real Epic voice: Ex Deo.”
Maurizio said if “another album will ever see the light…it will be by the will of the Gods and voice of those who believe in the spirit of the once most powerful Empire…ROME; time will tell…or not.
“I feel we’ve done two great albums, full of passion and epic passages; no regrets, just proud moments…It was an education on where we all come from; Roma touched your blood one way or another, either through your ancestry or through your way of life; not believing it is not believing who you really are, because the entire world took a new spin towards a progressive future under Roman rule. Hence the world we have today; still imperfect with many defects but forging ahead through progress.”
This is probably for the best,
Maurizio was waaaaaay to into this Roma horseshit.
Can’t be healthy.
