DonisArt Evenings


I was reading recently that ORDO ROSARIO EQUILIBRIO has the tendency to become the new ANATHEMA, as they visit us every year. It’s true, it is the 3rd time the Swedes come here, in the last 3 years, but this time they didn’t just came to play, they came to release their new album. And so they did in the most passionate way, while their sound become more dynamic than fans are usually acostumed. Maybe there is still something left to be settled regarding the femeal voice on stage, which remains low profile, so to speak. In the live formula with a bass and a guitar, Tomas’s band delivers a lot more energy to the fans from the first rows. This could be easily seen by the people who attented the event on the evening of the 5th of November, in Kulturhaus. I was expecting about 150 people and I was right. Most of them were long time friends of the Special Evenings. I would like to thank them again for their unconditional support!

ORE played for circa 60 minutes songs from all the albums, while having on the background erotic projections that allowed interested people, to better understand the motifs of Tomas’s music. After a pseudobis the five Swedes came back on stage with Zamil and his partener, who demonstrated some “Kinbaku” about 20 minutes. It was a gourgeus performance for bondage coneseeurs and the other curious spectators. Zamil and ORE participated together before in some events, but this one was truly special! The music and Zamil’s show perfectly enterwined, while being backed up by background exciting projections.

The crowd kept to itself during the performance, rarely cheering or communicating with the band. On the other side, Tomas, dedicated the concert to a couple from Serbia who came to Bucharest especially for this show. They got married a weekend ago. There were some people who came from Sofia and who assured me they will going to come back to Dark Bombastic Evening especially since they were present last year. What a nice feeling, good for them! I also ran into the Norwegian Karsten Hamre/PENITENT and I found out that he was back in Romania for a while now.

There isn’t much to be said about ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO, because their integral concept is hard to transfer into words….they music as well. If you don’t fancy the approach, you can’t practicly enjoy the music. If you found some of the older songs and albums exicting then “Song 4 Hate and Devotion” could overtake you. From what I’ve been hearing from Tomas, they are working on a new album concentrated on the Darker dimension.

I’dd like to close the the story of the Experimental Evening under the DonisArt banner with Tomas’s last words on stage: “Thank you, good night. See you in 10 years”.

    Experimental Friday II


ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO este trupa longeviva care, in cei peste 15 ani de activitate, a realizat multe albume remarcabile, suedezii devenind emblema reprezentativa a casei de discuri COLD MEAT INDUSTRY. A venit insa timpul pentru o schimbare si iata ca Tomas Pettersson, liderul trupei, a acceptat oferta gigantului Out Of Line Records, pentru a lansa, nu peste mult timp, cel mai lucrat si inspirat album din istorie, “Songs 4 Hate & Devotion”.

O.R.E. s-a simtit foarte bine in Romania, concertele din 2008 de la Brasov (http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=102...) si din 2009 in Bucuresti (http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=102...) fiind importante atat pentru fani, cat si pentru trupa sau organizatori.

In consecinta, DonisArt a agreat cu trupa ca, in cadrul Experimental Friday II, O.R.E. sa prezinte prietenilor vechi si noi cele mai reprezentative piese din intreaga istorie alaturi de altele noi, in premiera, in Seara Speciala “A Night 4 Hate & Devotion”… si se spera ca si noul CD sa fie disponibil tot atunci!

Tomas si Rose-Marie vor veni cu o componenta usor schimbata, cele doua chitari live adaugate (Fredrik si Ronnie) urmand sa degaje o expresivitate semnificativa sunetului si, implicit, o dinamica aparte scenica. Fredrik ramane acelasi baterist ce nu se dezminte, el fiind cel care mentine ritmul unui Apocayptic Pop greu de confundat atat in studio, cat si pe scena.

Dupa concertul propriu-zis, trupetii vor petrece intreaga noapte impreuna cu prietenii Serii Speciale, cvintetul venind special din Suedia la Bucuresti.

Evenimentul va fi gazduit de clubul Kulturhaus (fostul Club Twice), cu incepere de la ora 20.00. Pretul unui bilet este de 50 lei (www.eventim.ro) iar cei prezenti vor avea parte si de alte surprize placute si incitante…

Va asteptam!
