Draugr Shooting New Music Video For "Legio Linteata"

Pagan black metallers Draugr have been filming a video for the track “Legio Linteata” from their second full-length album “De Ferro Italico." The following press release was issued about the coming video:

"True to its subject matter and the ethos of the band, which harks back to the countrie’s Pagan warrior past, the video was filmed in the ancient ruins of Alba Fucens close to Aquila and was directed by Gianmarco Colalongo. It is anticipated that when ready the video will make its internet debut on Blank TV. Stills from the video have been uploaded onto Draugr's Facebook page and can be seen here.

"Recorded and mixed by Davide Rosati in 2011 at the ACME Recording Studio in Italy, and mastered by Mika Jussila at the Finnvox Studios in Finland, the album 'De Ferro Italico' recounts the deeds of a group of warriors whose devotion to the archaic traditions of the Italic cults of their ancestors put them in direct conflict with Rome and Emperor Theodosius’ decree, which, in 392 AD, led to the persecutions of all Pagan cults and paved the way for the rise of Christianity."

Commenting on the filming of the video, Dragur's keyboard player Ursus Arctos says: “We especially chose the ruins of Alba Fucens in which to film the video because they have an ancient and solemn atmosphere which we thought was appropriate for a song celebrating the actions of our ancestors who risked all to oppose the forces of Roman imperialism and the Christian religion.”
