[Dark] UNKNOWN

NONE

The USA based ambient/industrial, neo-folk solo act None - a tribute to all the divine - was founded in 2015 by musician and songwriter Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss). For Nicholas, None is the deity of his creation and the eternal version of himself. As he had stated for the interview (webzine From Corners Unknown), the purpose and mission of his contemporary life were to discover himself as the true voice and host that None speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of None upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity.

None's music will be presented on the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 3 June at 22.00 [CEST] on Terra Relicta radio.

UNREQVITED - Unleashed The Second Single Taken From The Forthcoming Album

Unreqvited uncovered the second single "Funeral Pyre" taken from its forthcoming album Beautiful Ghosts, which is scheduled for release on 13 August. The Canadian blackgaze project of multi-instrumentalist 鬼 ("Ghost") has previously revealed the cover art, tracklist, and further details of the new full-length.

Unreqvited comment: "As a whole, 'Beautiful Ghosts' contains mostly lighter, prettier sounding tracks, yet 'Funeral Pyre' has a somber twist to it that the other tracks don't have", tells 鬼. "This song oscillates between juxtaposed depressive and uplifting passages. I took this dichotomic approach to the composition, to mimic the peaks and valleys of feeling love and attachment towards another human being."

With his sixth Unreqvited album, Beautiful Ghosts, driving force and sole member 鬼 has set out to fearlessly explore this for metal-heads rather "scary" emotion. "Inspired by a muse, there are strong themes of love, passion, and devotion on this record", explains the multi-instrumentalist. "My overall vision was to capture and document my experience with the unique feeling of infatuation and attachment."
 
As a result of journeying into his mind and collecting a wide range of emotions, 鬼 has included many lighter and more uplifting passages than previously on Beautiful Ghosts. Yet the listener will also find the expected dark twists as the composer is balancing his score by occasionally pitting lonely cynicism against romantic naivety. New elements include significant use of clean vocals throughout the album and there are even playfully progressive rhythms as in the opening track "All Is Lost". The core elements that have shaped Unreqvited in the past remain active as well. Thus the massive anthemic refrains from Mosaic I: L'amour Et L'ardeur (2018) are equally present as the simple melancholic melodies from the 2016 debut album Disquiet and the orchestral grandeur of Empathica (2020).
                         
Ever since 鬼 conceived Unreqvited as a special musical vehicle for his multi-faceted creative output and brought it to light in 2016, his project has been a constantly shape-shifting and stylistically wide-roaming creature. With Beautiful Ghosts, the Canadian is at the same time gathering the strands of his previous works and taking an innovative step forward that makes it even harder to pin just one label onto his sound. Beautiful Ghosts applies a rich palette of musical colours, hues, and shades that are passionately blended together by the theme of "love". Link

Beautiful Ghosts tracklist:
1. All Is Lost
2. Autumn & Everley
3. Reverie
4. Funeral Pyre
5. Cherish
