The Circle Music proudly announces the release of Goth pioneers Faith And The Muse - “Annwyn, Beneath The Waves” for first time on vinyl.
Follow us as we travel back to the year 1996. It has only been 2 years since the release of the debut album “Elyria” and Faith And The Muse are striking again while the iron is hot. If “Elyria” surprised gothic fans, “Annwyn, Beneath The Waves” brings the band to new heights! This new CD is riveting, majestic and completely unique. “Annwyn, Beneath The Waves” will be historically registered as one of the most complete albums ever released.
From the first second of the opening title song - which haunts us immediately - until the last note of the innovative instrumental “Apparition” that completes this masterpiece, there isn’t a single moment that the listener loses interest. There are no fillers here. Only works of high art and true elegance: breathtaking songs that only Faith And The Muse can create. Top moments? Of course, the whole album. Every single one of the 14 songs has its own virtue, its own peculiarities, yet at the same time placed in such a way that they alternate perfectly. A diverse musical fest of sound and image that enchants the listener.
We are proud that 26 whole years later, we can now release “Annwyn, Beneath The Waves” for the first time on vinyl, with new mastering - along with the addition of four live bonus tracks from the historic concert of Faith And The Muse from the Convergence Festival in 2007. Now, original fans can remember this gorgeous album, and new fans can get to know one of the brilliant jewels of our musical heritage.
“Here, thoughts cling airborne
To a sea of voice so glorious: mesmerizing
This is my body, this is my inner mind,
What lies beneath my eyes.
Discarded years of elemental faith
Beckoned to a watery embrace with love upon his face.
My appetite’s unchanged...
Sink into dream: these enchanted depths...
The realm of muted wisdom
Slowly descend; trust ignites the darkness
And bliss is this drowning moment...” Style: Gothic, Darkwave
