Ex Deo - The Immortal Wars

Ex Deo have always been one of those bands who I would describe as wonderfully dorky. Their latest release The Immortal Wars adds to that legacy. This is a band who have powerful songwriting,  great execution and a corny dedication to historical themes that you can't help but to admire. There is a sense of rock and roll oblivion that the band finds themselves lost in that makes all of their music strangely mesmerizing. Even from the initial stomp of the opening track The Rise Of Hannibal it's clear these guys are something different.

From a purely musical perspective, The Immortal Wars is a great step forward for the band. The compositions feel a lot more layered here and the band has some very powerful and angular riffs driving the entire thing forward. The pomp and circumstance of this record is utterly magical and the historical themes lend the entire thing the dignity it deserves. For those familiar with the story of Hannibal and the Carthagean wars (And perhaps most importantly the Carthage solution) it's clear that Ex Deo are doing the events at hand justice with some very powerful music. There is something utterly mesmerizing about all this band has come to represent.

It's easy to get into the reliable grooves of Ex Deo, this Kataklysm side project often goes far beyond the reach of the parent band. As it stands Ex Deo is a group founded by metal nerds for metal nerds The lyrics are intelligent and powerful and the songwriting is top notch. It speaks to an older time with a very modern melodic death metal attack. If you can't fall in love with the sheer majesty of this band and the transcendent melodeath bliss which they craft their sound around then you might just be a lost cause.

  1. I'm here to testify about what DR. OYAGU did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OYAGU on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. OYAGU prepared and sent me Healing Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. OYAGU assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. OYAGU for help via email} visit his website whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348101755322. , Thanks once again DR. OYAGU for making me a happy woman again.
