Italian symphonic death metal quartet Genus Ordinis Dei have just unveiled a stunning new music video for their latest single ‘Cold Water’. The impressive music video was directed by Steve Saints, and filmed in the dangerous Italian Alps (aka Dolomites) in Trentino, Italy. The band and crew spent a total of three days & two nights trekking across the snow-covered mountains at altitudes exceeding 7,300 feet above sea level, filming at both Pordoi Pass and Sella Pass.
The song was written about an expedition gone wrong, and the rescue squad that was sent to find the missing explorers. They eventually find the cave where the survivor lies, but is it too late?
‘Cold Water’ is the second single taken from their upcoming sophomore full-length album entitled Great Olden Dynasty which will be released on November 24, 2017 via Eclipse Records. The album features ten pummeling tracks of symphonic death-metal mastery, including Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) on guest vocals for the song ‘Salem’. The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Simone Mularoni (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody, DGM) at Domination Studio.
