Hail and Kill is Genus Ordinis Dei’s symphonic deathmetal tribute to one of the band’s greatest influences, Manowar. This cover version brings a new interpretation of the classic power metal song to light, and offers Genus Ordinis Dei fans something new since the release of their epic full length album ‘Great Olden Dynasty’ which was released in October of 2017.
“We’ve always been (true) fans of this legendary metal band” states guitarist Nick Key. “For better or worse, we know that Manowar is a large piece of the history of heavy metal, inspiring thousands of bands, including us. Once we heard about the Final Battle Tour, we looked ourselves in the eyes and agreed that the time has come! So we put to work creating a new version of this metal masterpiece Hail and Kill, because now is the time for all bands to pay homage to the true Kings of Metal!”
The single was released worldwide on October 5, 2018.
