Aborted. This is a band that in my mind, needs no grand introduction, however that would be doing them a grave injustice. The extremely hard working death metalers based out of Belgium, have a vast body of work that extends back to the mid 1990’s. This is a band that has continuously progressed over the […]
A concept album on one of the most well-known and infamous Roman emperors is an idea that will inevitably make people have big expectations and Ex Deo have definitely fulfilled them with this release.
