A while back I was presented with an album promo for Great Olden Dynasty by Italian metal act Genus Ordinis Dei. I really dug it, and I still listen to it now. You can read my review and an interview I did with the band here and here. Anyway, the band just released a cover of Manowar‘s classic anthem Hail and Kill for your listening pleasure, and it’s pretty damn good too.
Here is the video and the press release along with the links to check it out and add it to your playlists. Keep it metal \,,/
Symphonic death metal quartet Genus Ordinis Dei has revealed a brand-new music video for their latest single, Hail and Kill. The song, which was originally written and recorded by the legendary metal band Manowar is out now via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, iHeartRadio and more! The video was directed by Steve Saints.
“We’ve always been true fans of this legendary metal band and we know that Manowar inspired thousands of bands, including us,” says vocalist Nick Key. Guitarist Tommy Mastermind adds, “Representing the universe of Manowar in just one is the song is not only hard, but it’s also impossible. We’re excited and honoured to pay homage to the Kings of Metal with our cover version of Hail and Kill. We did our best to arrange a song that we, as true Manowar fans, want to listen and recognize as a true classic… Hail!”
here is the latest music video and single from the band since releasing their full-length album Great Olden Dynasty in November of 2017. The album received critical acclaim from dozens of media outlets worldwide and features Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil on guest vocals for the song Salem.
