“Nihilist Notes” is dark, oppressive, and raw. It’s a deceleration of war orchestrated by drums and horns rather than guitars and pianos as we are used to. The sound is rather more martial than folk, but still clearly Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio. The new album merges the crudeness of the past, such as “Conquest Love & Self-Perseverance”, with the refinement and perfection of the present. It becomes a convergence of both past and present into a perfect symbiosis of what’s to come.
“In a world where the idea of hero and tyrant never has been more urgent. In a world where disinformation has become the new gospel. In times where the concept of good and evil is colored by crayons in various shades of grey. Nihilist Notes kindles the last fires of hope and takes us on a perpetual quest 4 meaning in nothing”.
– Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio –
