All My Faith Lost
out on March 9th 2021
After 11 years from their EP “Decade”, all my faith lost … are back with a new full length album. Originally thought as the starting point of a new decade of amfl activities, and then resulting the only original release in this long span of time, this album is the perfect representation of what amfl are right now.
These eleven brand new songs enclose all the distinguishing traits of the band’s previous works, distilled through several important events occurred in amfl members’ lives, a better artistic maturity, and the additional influences brought in by the new guitarist Angelo Roccagli.
As for the previous full length albums, this release is profoundly inspired by art, this time by visual art. Each song is influenced by a painting by some of our favorite artists related to Pop Surrealism movement such as João Ruas, Tara McPherson, Nicoletta Ceccoli and Ray Caesar.
Each painting suggested us a story, instilled feelings and emotions that we eventually translated into lyrics and music, touching upon diverse themes as the human estrangement from nature (Nymphs IV / Keeping time), death and afterlife (Awakening the moon / We all die sometimes / The inconvenience of spirits), Greek mythology (Cassandra) and some of the darkest sides of love (White thread, Flood).
This album is a journey starting with a violent dream and finishing with a calm walk in a moonlit forest.
