Seven years ago, Tomas Petterson started to write the masterpiece of Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio. Now it is finally finished: An album that crushes the borders of Neofolk with overwhelming musical sense and deep, poetic words. „Let‘s Play“ is more than the next album of this exceptional band, it is the rise for the stars and a sound-built manifest of art.
The long composing time reflects the supernal standard of composer Tomas: „I see „Let’s Play“ as the final version of Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio. It‘s my cruel mistress. It’s my white whale. And finally, 7 years after its genesis, with numerous interferences and surprises in between, it is ultimately finished.“ And where „Songs 4 Hate & Devotion“ and „Vision:Libertine“ stopped is where „Let‘s Play“ actually starts: Between darkness and a sinister taste, between sex and death, the songs are more playful and free yet more serious and focussed than ever. The band calls their music Apocalyptic Pop, and World Downfall never tasted so sweet.
„Let‘s Play“ comes as single digipak CD and as a strictly limited boxset in 404 copies including Double-LP in purple and silver with the „4Play“ EP as bonus, the digipak CD version and finally a very special toy alongside a pair of seamed stocking for general excitement.”
