Ex Deo Drops Off PaganFest

Battle metallers Turisas will be heading back to North America this spring for "PaganFest: America Part III," their first-ever U.S. headlining run. Joining the Finnish sextet on their triumphant return to the States is a gathering of bands from across the world: Scotland's Alestorm, Russia's Arkona, and U.S. act Huntress. Ex Deo has now dropped-off the tour, and in regards to the band's departure from PaganFest, Maurizio Iacono comments:

"It is with deep disappointment that I am obliged to pull EX DEO off this year's PaganFest. We were all excited to play this festival and premier some new material, but unfortunately our new album 'Caligvla' has been delayed, and we need to finish it and make it perfect. Add to that, the Kataklsym DVD is also on its final production phase...We decided it would be best to concentrate on giving every bit of attention to the album you have been waiting for, and also for the Kataklysm documentary to kick major ass.

"This being said, we will still perform with EX DEO on the Montreal & Toronto shows with PaganFest, as we will be in studio in the area, closing up the album 'Caligvla'. Everything else is cancelled for EX DEO. We will return to support the album in the fall...

"Word from Rome is that the plans are already in motion for world conquest! We ask our fans to support PaganFest and the great bands playing this year!"

Dates for the PaganFest tour are as follows: More...

In regards to the upcoming tour, Turisas frontman Mathias Nygard comments: "It took time, but finally we had a chance to make it back to North America. After many successful tours there with acts like Cradle of Filth and Dragonforce during the past few years, it's great to return as a headliner. This is a killer combo with great variety-- some of the most twisted acts of the folkier side of metal! Be prepared for a great night out-- I expect to witness some crazy audiences!"

Ex Deo Signs With Napalm Records

Canadian Roman-themed metal act Ex Deo has announced its signing with Napalm Records. The signing comes in time for the band to prepare its next full length album, titled "Caligula." Frontman Maurizio Iacono, also of Canadian death metal veterans Kataklysm, commented by saying:

"Today I'm excited to say that we have found a new home for the Roman legion of Ex Deo! We have parted ways amicably with our longtime friends at Nuclear Blast for the second album of Ex Deo. We needed to separate even more the two bands of Kataklysm and Ex Deo and we now have a new vision of soldiers behind Ex Deo and we have found this after a few months of talking to different labels with Napalm Records out of Austria, I've been dealing with them with a band I work with called Alestorm and they have done a fantastic and professional job. We look forward to releasing the anticipated second album, 'Caligula', with this new powerhouse and unleashing next year one of the most defiant albums metal has seen in ages."

Ex Deo Frontman Comments On New Album

Ex Deo frontman Maurizio Iacono (also of Kataklysm) has posted the following statement online in regards to its forthcoming studio album, titled "Caligula."

"It’s amazing to see a vision I had one day waking up finally become a reality two years ago. We had done a few shows in America with Ensiferum for our debut album Romulus that were fantastic, but to go across the country and really seeing people waiting anxiously for this and screaming their hearts out for it live has been one incredible feeling.

I feel EX DEO is changing the game of the underground, bringing a theater to the live stage and bringing a new concept that has never done before. This is a beast of a band and we would like to thank everyone for the great support. With this said, I would like to announce that we will indeed begin pre-production on the next album Caligula – the follow up to the highly-acclaimed debut Romulus – as soon as the world tour for KATAKLYSM will end next year.

Expect a revolutionary album that will breathe the word ‘NEW’ into a much stagnant metal industry. It is yet undermined which label will release Caligula as we are looking at many different options."
