Bellum Musicae: Arditi interview, December 2012

Michael Ray: It is now generally an established fact with the Martial-Industrial-Ambient-Neoclassical scene, that Arditi is one of the most influential projects, and has almost single-handedly helped to make it what it is. What would think of this statement? Can it really be said that Arditi has largely founded this genre?

M. Björkman: As flattering as this would be I would say it is an exaggeration. When we started Arditi we had quite a lot of influence from bands like Der Blutharsch and Allerseelen that had been around far longer than us. After this I would say we have moved into a direction to distinguish ourselves properly in this genre and likely in many ways leading the way for others.......
