Power/prog metal band S91 presents the new video ‘Godfrey of Bouillon’ featuring singer Egidio Casati from Boarders. The song is taken from the latest album “Along The Sacred Path”, released by Rockshots Records in Spring 2019.

The new Lyric Video can be seen below.

“Along The Sacred Path” album traces the history of Christianity through the life of some key figures. One of them is Godfrey Of Bouillon, first ruler of the first Crusader State. He is also the main character of Torquato Tasso’s “Gerusalemme liberata”, a poetic character of extraordinarily evocative force. Moved by sincere faith, he is a humble hero who refuses the title of King.
