On his 2006 opus magnum, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio mastermind Tomas Petterson treats the impeding apocalypse with adequately apocalyptic sounds comprised of rotten beauty, radiant darkness, lush eroticism, opulent strings, driving rhythmic loops, fragile acoustic guitars, sublime piano parts and decadent samples.
The deleted classic is now re-released as a deluxe new edition with newly mastered sound and two previously unreleased bonus tracks, as well as a classy, new booklet and artwork. The gripping emotional rollercoaster ride of fragile beauty, apocalyptic pomp and decadent grandeur is presented in new sonic glory and is a must-own for fans and all aficionados of ambitious tightrope walks between art, excess and Pop.
