Historically, released in 2007, 'four' was the ep interlacing the last two albums Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio put out on cold meat industry, and an augury of the popularity the band would subsequently achieve with their quality blend of neofolk, martial industrial and melodic compositions - and the first time tomas pettersson would use his distinct voice to sing rather than recite.
'four' constituted the first output on the raubbau label, and upon its release the original vinyl picture disc edition almost instantly sold out. so it comes as no surprise that there has been a high demand to make these tracks available again to ordo rosarius equilibrio's ever-growing following, and raubbau now gives in to public interest and presents a fully remastered and largely expanded cd version of 'four' incl. remixes by Mikael Stastrand, Empusae, Arcana, Thirteenth Exile, Fredrik Leijstrm, Tarmvred, Geneviève Pasquier, Xotox and Spiral69!
'three times four' sets a fine example of what a rerelease/remix album should be about, adding surprising new aspects to the basic material. the approaches applied by the remixers are quite diverse, nevertheless there is a constant level of quality and originality that ensures a coherent, satisfactory listening. see, there are really more than just four shades of darkness
