The filming will take place in early January 2010 and will be released in the month of Mars (March) to celebrate Mars, the ancient Roman god of war.
Commented vocalistMaurizio Iacono:
"The first video clip we did was for the title track Romulus. It was an epic venture into the beginning of Romes birth and mythology and served as more of an introduction to the story. This time we're going to do a video that will turn everyone on their heads. In Her Dark Embrace' will depict a Roman battle scene. Were not going for airplay here, were going for what Rome was: the most brutal and efficient war machine that ever walked the earth. If it's blood the people want it's blood they will get. I can't wait to get this done."
