about

“Omne Ensis Impera” introduces an additional strength to ARDITI’s compositions - epic orchestral loops and thunderous percussions are granted a more prominent role, stirring the damp and suffocating ambiance that the duo have always produced.

“We sing the praise of war. Not for the way it makes people die, but for the way it makes people come alive.”

The highly anticipated fifth album by the Swedish duo was released in March 2008, under the title “Omne Ensis Impera”. The sense of determination that echoes through their music and which has brought them to the forefront of Martial / Industrial Neo-Classical scene has stayed untouched, evoking the sense of duty and commitment that Italy’s WWI elite storm troops, from which the name ARDITI originated, were known for.

“Omne Ensis Impera” introduces an additional strength to ARDITI’s compositions - epic orchestral loops and thunderous percussions are granted a more prominent role, stirring the damp and suffocating ambiance that the duo have always produced so well with their use of ominous synths, obscure speeches and mesmerizing narrations.

Similarly, shades of the Italian Futuristic movement of the early XXth century, which served as inspiration in the early days of the project, remain imprinted in ARDITI’s work – “Omne Ensis Impera” could well be a modern interpretation of the Futurist’s goal of glorifying warfare to an artistic expression beyond its inherent violence and intrinsic sense of heroism.

“Omne Ensis Impera” has been mastered by Kamrat Nordvargr of MZ.412 and TOROIDH, an old ally of the band. Nordvargr has also contributed with additional arrangements on a couple of tracks, and prepared a slightly modified track list, which would feature on the vinyl version of the album that will follow soon, together with a limited edition box set. The CD version is presented in a deluxe glossy Digipak, with embossed artwork.
