Video CLip For New Song "Halls Of Human Delights" Issued By Genus Ordinis Dei

Italian symphonic death metal act Genus Ordinis Dei posted a video clip for the new single "Halls of Human Delights." The song is lifted from the upcoming second full-length album "Great Olden Dynasty" coming November 24th via Eclipse Records.

“The song is about God’s creation of sin, and the fact that sins have been made to seem delicious when committed” states vocalist Nick K. “As more people commit sins, more souls are sent to the prison that God created for them until they are redeemed. We decided to represent the theme of the song in a luxurious but decadent hall as a metaphor to the joy of committing sin, but also to imply the feeling of emptiness when one’s sins are redeemed.” Guitarist Tommy Mastermind continues, “We decided to revisit this abandoned location we used for a previous photo shoot because it was perfect. We didn’t expect any problems, however when we arrived, there were dozens of people shooting an actual movie! The movie production troupe was using our hall as their control room, and just outside they were shooting some horror scenes. We were desperate because that was the only day for us to shoot before departing on tour with Lacuna Coil. Luckily some people on the production crew had heard of the band before, and were sympathetic to our dilemma. They moved their gear to the far side of the room and we literally shot the video while they were shooting their movie! It was a difficult but memorable experience!”

The album features ten pummeling tracks of symphonic death-metal mastery, including Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) on guest vocals for the song "Salem."

The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Simone Mularoni (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody, DGM) at Domination Studio. It sports the following track listing:

1. The Unleashed
2. You Die In Roma
3. Cold Water
4. The Flemish Obituary
5. Sanctuary Burns
6. Morten
7. ID 13401
8. Halls of Human Delights
9. Salem (Feat. Cristina Scabbia)
10. Greyhouse
