about

Sulphur Flowers is proud to present you its another release which we hope will bring you no less delight that it has brought us. Hailing from Italy, the man behind the project, Luca Bonandini, is known for his devotion to Russia: he was noticed in numerous collaborations with several locally distinguished Russian dark folk artists like Jhonnie from Kratong and Alexey Popov from Sunset Wings, and they have surely paid back by contributing to the Black Rainbow.

With his debut work Luca brings us the gift of his beautiful music that is bound to stun all the admirers of traditional first-wave dark folk music. Sounding in the best possible way that a hypothetical mix of Current 93 and Ataraxia would happen to be, the songs of TIoS are a bottomless sea of sorrowful yet warm and somehow comforting melancholy. This is a tale of beauty and sadness, of everything that is doomed to die and to be born again. This is the image of barren trees in winter covered by peaceful snow.

Take a breath and join us in this journey.
