Ex Deo reveal sinister new track “The Head Of The Snake”

Juno Award-nominated symphonic death metal band Ex Deo will unleash their epic new full-length album, “The Thirteen Years Of Nero”, this Friday, August 27th, 2021 via Napalm Records! On “The Thirteen Years Of Nero”, the collective transports the listener back to Ancient Rome with 10 cinematic masterpieces that tell the conceptual story of the reign of Emperor Nero.

Following the release of their merciless new singles “Imperator” and “Boudicca (Queen Of The Iceni)” – featuring the powerful pipes of Unleash The Archers frontwoman Brittney Slayes – the band offers a third new single, the sinister “The Head Of The Snake”. The track showcases an ominous, unrelenting battery of symphonic swirls amid orchestrally accented riffage and choral passages.

Frontman Maurizio Iacono says:

“The centerpiece of all things NERO was his mother, Agrippina. She manipulated the strings of the senate and conspiracies to make sure her beloved son NERO would rule the world, she was the head of the snake with her deadly fangs of deceit. The song travels through her calculated sadistic mind.”
