In the uncompromising spirit of the nineties, Orbis Tertius was committed to two-inch tape in August of 2010 at Louder Studios (Wolves In The Throne Room, Weakling etc.), standing in vehement opposition to the sterility and over compression of most contemporary metal. Needless to say, the Ordo Obsidium debut swims away from the stagnant waters in which black metal now lies. Marching the perilous road between orthodoxy and progress the album will be met with both praise and condemnation. However one thing is clear, Ordo Obsidium is not a carbon copy of a carbon copy of a carbon copy.
