Metal De Facto - "Legionnaires' Oath" (lyric video)

Το βίντεο των Metal De Facto για το "Legionnaires' Oath" από το album "Imperium Romanum"
Οι Metal De Facto μας έρχονται από την Φινλανδία. Δημιουργήθηκαν προ διετίας από τον κιθαρίστα Esa Orjatsalo (πρώην μέλος των Dreamtale) και τον μπασίστα Sami Hinkka των Ensiferum.

Μπάντα αποτελούμενη από έμπειρα μουσικά μέλη καθώς και οι υπόλοιποι προέρχονται από μπάντες όπως οι Everfrost, Kiuas, Leverage κλπ. Χθες κυκλοφόρησε το ντεμπούτο των Metal De Facto υπό τον τίτλο "Imperium Romanum"...

Δελτίο τύπου: «"The Ascending Of Jupiter" is about the mighty Roman thunder god. Besides writing about the mythology behind Jupiter, we also wanted to explore how gods influenced the life of the average Roman citizens. Musically, we wanted to combine the blistering speed and soaring melodies of power metal, to the pounding strength and visciousness of traditional heavy metal! The video was made by Jouni Valjakka who is also known from the band Whispered. We’re big fans of Jouni’s video work, and knew that no one else could capture the thunderous flight through the heavens which the song and its theme require quite like him!»

Esa Orjatsalo: «As our band name states, it is pure heavy metal music just as we like it, it means that it is time to ‘Make Power Metal Great Again’! That is what Metal De Facto is all about. “Imperium Romanum” is an album made by a huge power metal fan for other power metal fans. We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel just for the sake of it, but we definitely also brought some fresh perspective into the songwriting. If I would hear this album when I was young, I would have been really excited!»

Bio: «The band was formed in late 2017 by Esa Orjatsalo (ex-Dreamtale) and Sami Hinkka (Ensiferum), who had met and discussed the deeper meanings of power metal in Ensiferum's tour bus. The line-up was soon completed with Atte Marttinen (ex-Kivimetsän Druidi), Benji Connelly (Everfrost), Mikko Salovaara (Leverage) and Mikael Salo (Everfrost).

The band promises to “Make Power Metal Great Again” with their powerful sound and epic concepts, ones that deal with different historical themes and mythologies. The idea was that every album would have a theme based on a certain country’s / culture’s history and mythology.

The debut album will deal with the Roman Empire and the many tales, true stories and philosophies associated with it. Each song is about a different aspect of this grand topic, and while being enjoyable as escapist storytelling in itself, also delves into the mindset of the different characters and people from whose perspectives the songs are written.»

Mikael Salo / Sami Hinkka: «'Legionnaires' Oath' talks about the legionnaries, heavy infantrymen of the Roman army who were revered as some of the most feared warriors at the time. It delves into the mindset of these soldiers, and the oath that they took to serve Rome for at least 25 years, the loyalty and the mental fortitude it required. Musically, 'Legionnaires' Oath' hoasts a powerful pounding drum beat paired with a commanding lead guitar melody. The chorus then explodes to an epic choir that speaks of military might and conquest, both sorrowful yet glorious!»
