History

This black metal band was founded in 2004 and issued Over The Frozen Battlegrounds in 2006. Ordinul Negru is Romanian for The Black Order. The band mounted a campaign of issuing half a dozen split releases before the 2007 CDR EP Undying Attitude. A second album also arrived in 2007. The band issued full-lengths featuring less than half a dozen songs. Nostalgia Of The Fullmoon Nights was the last album with Fulmineos as the sole member. Fulmineos abandoned the vocal position in 2015. Loud Rage Music “proudly” signed Romanian black metal band in June 2015. The band’s Sorcery Of Darkness album was due that autumn. Urmuz and Orthros joined in 2018. Faustian Nights’ artwork was once again done by Romanian artist and close friend of the band, Alexandru Das.

Banatian Darkness was owned by Fulmineos. Most members are also in Argus Megere. The band has toured China.

Reviews

ORDINUL NEGRU - LIFELESS - LOUD RAGE MUSIC  
Lifeless is the fourth release by the formerly one-man band. Back in 2008 Fulmineos was handling all the instruments and Lifeless was one of the man's many releases. Very raw atmospheric synth and vocal dominated black metal is one way to characterize this starting with the opener Wolves From The Ancient Forest. Return To The Lifeless Path makes it clear (no pun intended!) that Fulmineos and Ordinul Negru were very much in the old school demo level low cost production business. Lifeless is a throwback to the ‘90s’ demo days, before the clearest of production quality were available to all. Riffs lost within synths and screams and drums being heard somewhere within. Morbid Prophecy and Serpent's Promise are both over nine minutes long. They both feel like they are way too long. Lifeless is sometimes too true to its title. 66 minutes of underground atmospheric. – Anna Tergel

ORDINUL NEGRU - FAUSTIAN NIGHTS - LOUD RAGE  
This was an apprehensive listen that improved after repeat listens. The band does have its so-called ambient moments, but they are overblown upon first listen and the harder and more serious songs and segments rear their more powerful heads after several spins. Let us get the negative out of the way. Aside from the pretentious ambiance, Killing Tristan and Sol Omnia Regit (worst track on the disc) have an abundance of synthesizers, something that should be banned on all metal records. Putting those aside, Ordinul Negru can claim several good riffs and harmonies to its name. The unique and powerful riffing is backed by some powerful drumming. Favourite track Faceless Metamorphosis speeds up to superlative extremes by the time it reaches its end. Even the closing and title track's hint at gothic sounds does well, but as said the band's meat and potato should be its molten metal and nothing else. Think of the Romania-based band as one part fear factory, four parts Satyricon and five parts newer Mayhem. - Ali "The Metallian"
