“Since releasing The Beginning in December, we were craving to create something new. We decided to release a single that talks about our band recently coming out of a tough situation, so we want to thank our new drummer Nico who gave a new lifeline to Genus Ordinis Dei. This is our tribute to him, the Prince of None for rescuing two old wounded kings to reclaim their might!” says guitarist & producer Tommy Monticelli. “As always working with Steve Saints (director) is like having a night at the pub with your friends, so there’s nothing easier or more chill. This videoclip has a different style compared to our previous ones from The Beginning, and Glare of Deliverance. It’s faster and cryptic, more focused on the overall visual effects than the storytelling. We needed to try something different for once and after watching the final cut we thought this is so cool! Drummer Nico Pedrali continues, “For the first time I played a role in one of our videos and it’s been much more exciting than I expected. I was so hyped and I hope that you can tell that from watching my performance as the “Prince Of None”. Working with Bea (sfx) was so fun, she’s a chill person and a super professional makeup artist, her job is just amazing! For the Makeup we were inspired by Game of Thrones (Nick like poisoned Joffrey!) and The Lord Of The Rings for the Nazgul costume. We mixed it with some blood, smoke and darkness and BOOM! This is something that metalheads will enjoy for sure!”
