Ordo Draconis

The dragon figures as a major allegorical symbol at various stages of the alchemical process. It is a caveat to ward off the reckless, but some are willing enough to burn their fingers and touch what it really embodies - the infinite potentiality of chaos and darkness, and the divine inspiration which animates inorganic matter. It’s this which lies at the heart of the ambivalent code-name under which order was created: Ordo Draconis, ‘The Order of the Dragon’.

The dragon figures as a major allegorical symbol at various stages of the alchemical process. It is a caveat to ward off the reckless, but some are willing enough to burn their fingers and touch what it really embodies - the infinite potentiality of chaos and darkness, and the divine inspiration which animates inorganic matter. It’s this which lies at the heart of the ambivalent code-name under which order was created: Ordo Draconis, ‘The Order of the Dragon’.

The band’s audacity to cast baser metals into new substances and shapes has not made it easier to pigeonhole their sound. Think post-black metal, synth-flavoured but not ‘symphonic’, intricate but not tech for the sake of it. Add to that a good sense of dynamics, atmosphere with attitude, violent grace, coruscating melodies, caustic vocals, a touch of classical composition, and an unhealthy dose of character. All with an ear for detail and an eye for scope.
