Triarii is a one-man martial industrial project from Berlin, Germany formed in 2003 by Christian Erdmann, combining martial rhythms with neoclassical music and even military pop.
In 2009 Triarii and Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio gave birth to TriORE, a collaboration started with the song "Roses 4 Rome", from Triarii's second full-length "Pièce Héroique".
The name of the group comes from Latin, the Triarii was the third standard line of infantry of the Roman Republic's army. When suffering defeat, the first and second lines, the Hastati and Principes, fell back on the Triarii to attempt to reform the line and allow for a counter attack or withdrawal of the other lines. Because falling back on the Triarii was an act of desperation, to mention "falling on the Triarii" ("ad triarios rediisse") became a common Roman phrase indicating one to be in a desperate situation. To be the officer of the Triarii was an honor, it made the individual one of the best men in the legion.
