Originally released in 2008 on the now-defunct Banatian Darkness label, Ordinul Negru's fourth studio album, Lifeless, has been reissued courtesy of Loud Rage Music. It seems this band may have had a shift in direction at some point, as rather than the second-wave imitation found on the awful Nostalgia of the Fullmoon Nights, we are instead treated to a grim, trance-like, keyboard-driven Black Metal sound similar to Arcturus' Asperia Hymns Symfonia, only not as good. This has some captivating moments, and it's certainly better than Nostalgia, but despite having a more ambitious and individual sound than later efforts, it's still not that ambitious and individual, nor is it really good enough to stand out from the pack. Passable.
