Ifsounds - Apeirophobia to be released October 26
Melodic Revolution Records is proud to announce the release Apeirophobia (fear of the infinity) the new album by ifsounds.
About the Album
A concept about the conscience of Man about the end, not the fear of the death, but the fear of the infinity after death. But more precisely this album is about “thought” and “spirit”: it's an evolution after our previous work Morpho Nestira about consumerism… we can say that Apeirophobia is about “to be” while Morpho Nestira was about “to own”.
About The Songs
1.The first song is Anima Mundi, with a Mediterranean uptempo rhythm.
The song is about hypocrisies and false idols. Human beings believe that they
have full control on Earth, but they can't control it, because it has a strong soul
(anima mundi) that obeys just its own mysterious rules.
2.Summer Breeze is a sad power ballad about emigration: a man who has to
leave his home, who loses his roots and can't create new ones. I wanted to
speak about this phenomenon from “psychological” and intimate point of view
and not from a “sociological” point of view.
3. Last Minutes, a solid rock number. This song is a duet: there is a woman
on death row and a man with terminal disease in their 5 last minutes of life.
Again I wanted to point out the psychological drama more than the sociological
4. Aprile is a sweet piano-based song. There are two versions, an acoustic
one (piano, cello and violin) and a “rock” one.
5. Apeirophobia: it's a 28 minutes long suite in 9 parts. Lyrics are about the
fear of the infinity and how different philosophies and religions tried to explain
the sense of life. We don't know what we'll find after death: we can find an
ocean of light (Christianism) or an ocean of darkness (Atheism, Materialism);
maybe we're the creators of the reality (Kant, Hegel), or maybe we'll have
several lives to explore every part of our personality (Hinduism, Buddhism).
Maybe the sense of life is to become immortal in the memory of people
(Ugo Foscolo, Giordano Bruno)... Finally the only way to overcome the fear is
to feel ourselves as a part of something bigger, the human race: we are all
part of it and we all share the same destiny.
