About this album

“Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio’s 7th album continues their march amongst seeming polarities - of creation and destruction, of dark and light, of joy and sorrow, of sex and war- toward the Coniunctio Oppositorum, the conjunction of opposites. Apocalips, true to the ethos of The Order of Roses and Balance, is an opus of decadent beauty, of shining darkness, of fierce eroticism, of dreams, of blood, sperm and fire.

“Despite these familiar themes, Apocalips is also more grippingly personal and melancholic than previous records - perhaps reflecting the personal apocalypses of its creator, Tomas Pettersson.

Having refined their sound to yet again new levels of clarity and completeness, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio continue in their tradition of sound, the instruments ranging from drifting acoustic guitars, piercing percussions, lush pianos and strings to the fittingly decadent samples (including the ever-present Saloon Kitty) and above all the deep voice of Tomas Pettersson, delivering his poetic diatribes and evocations via spoken word, and even more than on previous works, via singing.

“The tracks on Apocalips range from the ferocious and yet tender “Do Murder & Lust Make Me a Man” to the tribally industrial and aggressive rhythmic soundscapes of “Hear the Sound of a Black Flame Rising”; from ”My Venus in Furs”, inspired by the old Velvet Underground S&M classic, to the ending track ”Who Stole the Sun from its Place in My Heart?”, which is possibly the most beautiful (and most sad) Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio song thus far.
