Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio

“There is nothing in my heart, that is how I love you
There is nothing in my heart, that is how I hate you
There is nothing in my eyes, that is how I see you
There is nothing in my soul, that is what I feel for you”

~ A Song 4 Hate & Devotion by Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio

Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio (ORE) is a neofolk/industrial/dark ambient music group from Stockholm, Sweden. The band is composed of its founding member and vocalist Tomas Pettersson, and Rose-Marie Larsen on backup vocals. The name Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio comes from Latin, which means Order of the Rose and the Balance.

Occultism and gnosticism largely make up the themes of the band. BDSM topics are also often featured. Their lyrics are intelligent and witty, combining death with life, beauty with wickedness, war with love, sex with depravity, joy with sorrow, creation with destruction, often using Christian and specifically Catholic symbols. Their music is dark and daunting yet inspiring and bright. A wide range of instruments are used and the lyrics are performed mostly by Pettersson in a form of a spoken word.

Definitely one of my favorite bands, so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
