| Originally released in 2007 as an ep, Four
came out between the last two Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio albums released on the Cold Meat Industry label. Four
heralded the popularity the band would subsequently achieve with their quality blend of neofolk, martial industrial and melodic compositions. On Four
it was the first time Tomas Pettersson would use his distinct voice to sing rather than recite. The ep also constituted the first output on the Raubbau label and upon its release the original vinyl picture disc edition almost instantly sold out. So it comes as no surprise that there has been a high demand to make these tracks available again to O.R.E.’s ever- growing following.
Raubbau Records gives in to public interest and presents a fully remastered and largely expanded cd version of Four include remixes by Mikael Stavöstrand, Empusae, Arcana, Thirteenth Exile, Fredrik Leijström, Tarmvred, Geneviéve Pasquier, Xotox and Spiral69! 'Three times four' sets a fine example of what a rerelease/remix album should be about, adding surprising new aspects to the basic material. The approaches applied by the remixers are quite diverse, nevertheless there is a constant level of quality and originality that ensures a coherent, satisfactory listening. See, there are really more than just four shades of darkness!
