Arditi (Sweden)
"Standards of Triumph" Digipak CD 2006, Equilibrium Music
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ add to cart ]
Tapping further into the darker tones of Militaristic Neo-Classical ambiance, Arditi present their strongest effort so far, with their ever effective use of crushing orchestrations and evocative speeches.

Spearheaded by H. Möller and M. Björkman, Arditi's first recordings came to light in 1997, inspired by the Italian Futurist Movement of the early 20th century.

Given both members' involvement in other projects (such as Puissance or Algaion), it was not until 2002 that the first Arditi output would come to be released - the limited edition 7" EP "Unity of Blood" (Svartvintras Productions, 2002) earned the project excellent criticism which served as motivation for the preparation of a few other efforts put out during the following years, among which their debut album, "Marching On To Victory" (Svartvintras Productions, 2003), the split CD "United in Blood" (Neuropa, 2004), shared with the Swedish Toroidh, and most recently "Spirit of Sacrifice" (Blooddawn, 2005).

The project's recent alliance with Equilibrium Music resulted in the release of the daunting appetizer 7" EP, wherein Arditi presented two brand new and exclusive tracks in a limited edition of 500 copies, and paved the way for the "Standards of Triumph", a new full-length opus now available in both Digipak CD and limited edition heavy vinyl via Equilibrium Music.

Boasting the unique personality of this Swedish combo, "Standards of Triumph" taps further into the darker tones of Militaristic Neo-Classical ambiance that has become the band's trademark, resulting in their strongest effort so far - ever effective in their use of crushing orchestrations and evocative speeches, Arditi hereby drags the listener around muddy trenches, leaving aside overly pompous festive marches or alcohol fueled merry bunker songs which seem to have become the norm as of late, and casting an hypnotizing veil over the turmoil of warfare-inspired Industrial soundscapes.

Also released in 12" Gatefold LP (lim. 500 copies). Both formats are also available in Boxset edition (lim. 100 copies).
