Re: new Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio
I suppose I should post some of their older clips so that those new to this band will have something to compare it to.
ORE was founded when Tomas Petterson's original band, the Swedish dark ambient/occult unit Archon Satani http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok6r9MriwjY
The other band member went on to form Inanna, and continued in the same vein, while Tomas formed Ordo Equilibrio http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhZLh4rdWFk
, and pursued a direction more geared towards his spoken word vocals over gothic soundscapes, with bondage/S&M/fetish themes being abundant in his imagery, and his poetry conveying themes of individualism, passion, misanthropy, religious/political rebellion, and most characteristically, the importance of sexual freedom.
When he released his double-album Make Love and War he added "Rosarius" to the band name to symbolize a change in direction and the sound expanding to include many more folk, martial, experimental, and gothic influences.
His second most recent album, O N A N I, was controversial in that it was centered around the theme of self love(masturbation), and he requested his fans send him pictures, videos, etc. of them satisfying themselves, in order to compile the booklet for the CD.
Anyhow, here's some of their previous works, so you can get an idea of the ORE sound:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byYSq6UyFiYhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMpUvZNwQ3chttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsENIbZb ... re=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XocE-4kvcdkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_QtHRPPRQY
