| Faithful to their path, Arditi return with Leading the Iron Resistance
. After the more orchestral approach found in their previous album Omne Ensis Impera
and the use of folk elements that characterized the Statues of Gods
EP, on their fifth full-length recording the Swedish duo partially emphasize the industrial side of their music with the extensive use of loops and recurring themes adding a semi-obsessive tone to the classical-themed militaristic sound-sculpturing.
Leading the Iron Resistance is a work that raises a warning flag against the false freedom of our age, and which seeks to inspire new ways of resistance through unity. A work that documents values and virtues that now seem lost, echoing through muddy recordings filled with blaring horns and somber narrations from days past. A work that beckons a call to arms, set to the pace of martial percussions, stirring orchestrations and powerful choirs. A work that instills the forging a new Man, under the leadership of Arditi!
Released on matte-coated Digipak CD with silver hot-foil finishing.
