The Italian symphonic death band have been on an extensive 40 days, 31 shows, 13 countries European tour, chapter of the still on Delirium World Tour that will be heading soon to South America, supporting their country fellow LACUNA COIL and the danish FOREVER STILL.
GENUS ORDINIS DEI and LACUNA COIL already know each other well as the band’s “E.P 2016” was produced by Marco Coti Zelati, bass player, composer and now also producer of Lacuna Coil.
Check out these three videos they released as a tour diary to know them better and see how they rock on stage!
Genus Ordinis Dei were established in 2011 from a circle of friends residing in Crema, Italy.
The line-up is composed by the four co-founder members: Nick K (Vox & Guitars), Tommy Mastermind (Guitars & Orchestra), Steven F. Olda (Bass), Richard Meiz (Drums). Every band member comes from an academic music background; they studied and graduated in some of the best music academy in Italy (RGA, MMI, NAM).
Between 2011 and 2013, the band sculpted its style, melting a sort of a new millennium metal with symphonic sonorities. During this they started to develop an idea of a trilogy where the first album to be released is “The Middle”, the second act of the entire story.
In 2014 Genus Ordinis Dei started the recording of their self-titled EP in February 2015, at the JDM Studio of Jonas Macullo, mixed and mastered by Simone Mularoni at Domination Studio. The producer was Marco Coti Zelati introduced to them by Fabrizio Scotti who works in the italian music industry since years.
In late 2015 the band signed with the Danish label “Mighty Music” for a worldwide distribution of both the two works.
The band entered the studio in summer 2016 to record the next full length “Great Olden Dynasty” which is entirely produced by Simone Mularoni (the greatest sound engineer in metal, in Italy). This album will contain a very special duet, Nick K will duet with Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil.
The first single, “Halls of Human Delights”, has been released last October right before the start of the European Tour with Lacuna coil and Forever Still.
“Great Olden Dynasty” will be released this year soon.
