Split release with SIGNA INFERRE (DE)
A limited edition split release, featuring 3 unreleased and exclusive tracks by each band, which served not only to present new material by ARDITI but also to introduce German newcomers SIGNA INFERRE, the finest offspring in the latest crop of Neo-Classical / Martial Industrial music.
For “Statues of Gods”, ARDITI tap into ancient Nordic traditions and incorporate them in their militaristic anthems. The characteristically oppressive soundscapes, pounding percussion and powerful orchestrations are represented in new shades, as elements of Nordic folk music shape ARDITI‘s pieces into slow-motion medieval dances and ceremonial tributes to times past. The 3 tracks on this release should not be considered an indication for the direction of any particular upcoming ARDITI material to follow, however, and have been gathered here exactly due to the fact that they would not really fit a typical ARDITI release. On the other hand, this material would, arguably, come to set the foundations for what would become LEIDUNGR, the Nordic Ritual Folk project that H. Möller initiated shortly afterwards.
