Symphonic death metal pioneers Genus Ordinis Dei have released the tenth (and final) music video episode entitled “Fire“ from their critically acclaimed & highly praised concept album entitled Glare Of Deliverance. Watch the new “Fire” music video / Episode 10 from Glare Of Deliverance below, or watch the entire ten-episode mini-series RIGHT NOW via the official series playlist.
The video was directed by Steve Saints. In this episode Eleanor meets her destiny. She is brought to the pyre where The Bishop, The Inquisitor, The Screamer, The Torturer, and The Executioner are waiting for her. She is burned on the pyre, along with The Heart of Stone she received from The Fallen. As she dies, the ritual is fulfilled and the Gates of Hell are opened… The Fallen and his army can now march upon the sky!
“The Fire music video is the final episode, the end of a journey that has kept us busy for almost 2 years! It has been an amazing experience; difficult and weird but extremely satisfying too. Not just because it’s a great piece of work, but also because I did it with my brothers: Nick, Steven, and Richard. We met a lot of great people in the process, and we want to say thank you to all of them from the deep of our hearts and souls, especially our crowd-funders who helped make it all possible” says guitarist Tommy. “Shooting in the darkness at nighttime was yet another new experience for us, but it all turned out great. Getting the shots of Eleanor and her captors in the dark as she danced with the huge flames were difficult, but it all worked out. We want to thank everyone at Wild Horses Ranch in Verdello for providing the comfort, space, and assistance to get all the shots we needed.” Vocalist Nick Key adds, “we want to thank everyone who has been following Eleanor’s adventure, everybody that has supported our crazy project, and everybody who will do so in the future. Of course, this is not the end, because a new journey is about to begin…”
Glare of Deliverance was produced by Tommaso Monticelli (Jumpscare, Eternal Delyria, Geschlecht) at Sonitus Studio, and it is the band’s third full-length album. It was released on December 4, 2020 and has received countless rave reviews from all over the world. For just a sample of the highlights, see here.
Glare Of Deliverance is the band’s most ambitious achievement yet. The scope and vision of the project had grown monumentally huge in comparison to their initial plans for the album. Aside from recording & producing a ten-song concept album, the band had to pull together a full production team for the ten-episode video series which consisted of concept artist Tom Roberts (Ghost), costume designer Floriana Setti, animal trainers from Wild Horses Ranch, prop & mask constructor Alessandra Faienza, a cast of actors & actresses starring Emilia Scarpati Fanetti as Eleanor, visual effects supervisors, special effects wizards, stuntmen, catering services, and even a full orchestral choir, Il Circolo Delle Quinte conducted by Margherita Colombo!
