Italian neoclassical darkwave/ethereal neofolk quartet ALL MY FAITH LOST presents their first record in eleven years, with the immersive sounds of Untitled. The beautiful, sprawling album saw release yesterday through French collective Cyclic Law on March 9th, and in conjunction with it’s unveiling, a new video for “The Inconvenience Of Spirits” is now playing.
Eleven years after their Decade EP, and as if it were an omen, ALL MY FAITH LOST returns a decade later with a new full-length album. The eleven songs on Untitled enclose all the distinguishing traits of the band’s previous works, distilled through several important events that occurred in the member’s lives and the additional influences brought in by new guitarist/bassist Angelo Roccagli, who joins Viola Roccagli (vocals, piano, synths, flute), Federico Salvador (vocals, guitars, synths), and Fabio Polo (violins).
As with their previous albums, Untitled is profoundly motivated by art where each song takes inspiration from paintings of some of their favorite artists related to the Surrealism movement such as JoÃ£o Ruas, Tara McPherson, Nicoletta Ceccoli, and Ray Caesar. Each painting suggested us a story, instilled feelings and emotions that were eventually translated into lyrics and musical compositions, touching upon a diversity themes such as the human estrangement from nature (“Nymphs IV,” “Keeping Time”), death and the afterlife (“Awakening The Moon,” “We All Die Sometimes,” “The Inconvenience Of Spirits”), Greek mythology (“Cassandra”), and some of the darker aspects of love (“White Thread,” “Flood”). The album jointly flows like a poignant journey through dreams and moonlight forests.
