After the highly acclaimed Nebuisa EP last year, Romanian Occult Black Metal veterans ORDINUL NEGRU return with yet another EP to complete and enhance the whole journey. A Sojourner Wandering Through the Barren Openness is now out via Loud Rage Music and available to play and order here: https://loudragemusic.bandcamp.com/album/ordinul-negru-a-sojourner-wandering-through-the-barren-openness
Here’s what the band had to say about it:
“A Sojourner Wandering Through the Barren Openness represents the other side of the coin of our experimentation after we released the Nebuisa EP last year.
We crafted this time an ambitious project of one song over 23 minutes, in which we have encapsulated all our knowledge and desire of an avantgarde and forward thinking approach, in relation to our musical journey in the black cult. We are not afraid to push genre’s limits, to incorporate old raw trv spirit and new orchestral elements together, to find that alchemic potion of catharsis.
Conceptually we developed a moment in time when a chosen eremite sees it all…the birth of the Earth and the ancestral truths, the crucifixion of the Nazarene and when the sky turned black and cleared the civilization in a majestic canvas, an epic poem inspired by old chronicles and forgotten dusted parchments.”
The entire package comes in an elegant digipack CD offered in collaboration with Loud Rage Music featuring beautiful imaginary made by Alexandru Das. The production (recording, mixing and master) was executed in Consonance studios by the band’s drummer Putrid, in a perfect symbiosis to keep every aspect familiar and comfortable for the band.
