Ex Deo Announces Touring Bassist Dano Apekian

Ex Deo front man Maurizio Iacono has issued the following update about recruiting a new bassist for touring duties:

"EX DEO have enlisted bassist Dano Apekian from Montreal, Quebec’s melodic death metal outfit ASHES OF EDEN. We knew that Francois Mongrain (MARTYR) couldn’t make it on some tours with EX DEO even before we asked him to perform on the album...we needed a person that could be there when called upon for touring. Dano has good stage experience and will serve Rome's conquest proudly!

"I would also like to also dismiss any claim that EX DEO is part of any Christian based band or beliefs. These are false allegations of people who have obviously not educated themselves with history. Rome was part of Polytheism beliefs, in other words, it was pagan, the belief in multiple gods, not Christianity until Emperor Constantine declared the Christian religion legal in Rome. That was the biggest mistake they ever made, it was the start of the fall of Rome and its ideals of free thinking, and for those who dismiss these things as something of the 'past,' well let me tell you that you live in the results of those past events and your way of thinking is based on it, and all the freedoms you take for granted. HAIL ROME!"

What an idiot. No respect for his Italian heritage. He was probably raised Catholic, too, if he grew up in Italy. Cry moar.

ok...do you just hate him 'cause he put somebody from Quebec on bass?
and you don't have to be the religion that's in your country to be proud of your heritage.
