Symphonic death metal pioneers Genus Ordinis Dei have just released the eighth music video entitled Abjuration from their critically acclaimed & highly praised concept album entitled Glare Of Deliverance.
In this episode, The Cross demands that Eleanor repent for her sins although, The Fallen seems to have different plans for his new servant.
Watch the new Abjuration music video / Episode 8 from Glare Of Deliverance and stay tuned for the final two episodes throughout the first half of 2021.
“This episode is kind of like the calm before the storm. Eleanor is brought before the Bishop to confess her crimes and repent, but the encounter from her dream the night before pays off. She is changed now, and ready to rise against her captors,” says vocalist & guitarist Nick Key. “We worked with Alessandra and Floriana on make-up that could represent this change. After the dream Eleanor keeps her new clothes, as if the dream was true. It is as if the encounter was real and in fact she is different. Eleanor has evolved and can see the big picture now, so she refuses to repent and threatens the Bishop. She challenges The Cross and is now a servant of The Fallen. Once again, we loved the performance of Emilia in this delicate passage, she is an amazing actress.
“Glare of Deliverance was produced by guitarist Tommaso Monticelli (Jumpscare, Eternal Delyria, Geschlecht) at Sonitus Studio, and it is the band’s third full-length album. The album was recently released on December 4, 2020 and has received dozens of rave reviews from all over the world.
Glare Of Deliverance is the band’s most ambitious achievement yet. The scope and vision of the project had grown monumentally huge in comparison to their initial plans for the album. Aside from recording and producing a ten-song concept album, the band had to pull together a full production team for the ten-episode video series which consisted of concept artist Tom Roberts (Ghost), costume designers, animal trainers, prop construction, a cast of actors & actresses, visual effects supervisors, special effects wizards, stuntmen and even a full orchestral choir!
