Symphonic death metal pioneers Genus Ordinis Dei have released the ninth music video episode entitled “Exorcism” from their critically acclaimed & highly praised concept album entitled Glare Of Deliverance.
The “Exorcism” music video was directed by Steve Saints. In this episode, The Cross tries to break the ritual by exorcising Eleanor however, just as all hope is lost she proves herself worthy to serve The Fallen… Watch the new “Exorcism” music video / Episode 9 from Glare Of Deliverance above or watch the first nine episodes RIGHT NOW via the official series playlist and stay tuned for the final episode which will be revealed on July 12!
“The ninth episode of this series reaches the climax of Eleanor’s adventure. After the abjuration fails and her bond with the occult is revealed, she is declared possessed by the Devil and The Inquisitor performs an exorcism on her. At this point Eleanor reaches the peak of her transformation and the situation changes dramatically” says vocalist & guitarist Nick Key. “This episode shows the meaning of Eleanor’s journey. All the events of the prior episodes brought her here, face to face with the Inquisitor. She now has the chance and the will to commit the most extreme action, that of becoming worthy to serve The Fallen and fulfill the ritual.“ Guitarist Tommy adds “Both Nick and Emilia performed brilliantly, especially at the beginning of the episode when they dance a waltz. The dance is a metaphor for the Inquisitor that overwhelms an exhausted Eleanor, playing with her before releasing his power on her, like a feline playing with its prey before killing it. This is the most dense episode of the series and the turns of events will leave you speechless, it’s a promise.”
Glare of Deliverance was produced at Sonitus Studio by Tommaso Monticelli (Jumpscare, Eternal Delyria, Geschlecht), and it is the band’s third full-length album. The album was released on December 4, 2020 and has received dozens of rave reviews from all over the world. For just a sample of 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!
