Recordings for a lifetime! ‘Killing Time killing Love’ is a new stone added to the solid building in masterly written and recorded music, that represents the unity ORDO EQUITUM SOLIS!
On 21 December 1990, the band's first album, ‘Solstitii Temporis Sensus’ was released on the independent Italian Label Musica Maxima Magnetica. The album had an immediate and unexpected success both in terms of sales and in terms of audience. The cooperation with the label would continue until 1996 with the highly successful albums ‘Animi Aegritudo’ (1992), the mini-CD ‘OES’ (1993), the live-album ‘Paraskénia’ (1994), and finally ‘Hecate’ (1995). The period is characterized by an artistic growth of the music, as well as an increasing popularity especially among gothic and neofolk listeners. Many articles about and interviews with the band appeared in magazines and fanzines. Distinguishing features are Leithana's voice, Deraclamo's folk guitar, lyrics in various languages (English, French, Latin, Italian), highly-emotional melodies, experimental effects, romantic and decadent atmosphere, and remarkable, sometimes provocative arrangements.
The band played many concerts in Europe, and also did a tour in the USA and Russia in 1993. O.E.S.’ albums were licensed to Germany (Discordia, Glasnost), USA (Projekt), Mexico, Czech Republic, UK, Russia…
