Liquid Faith If your an Alio Die fan you know it's hard to pick a favorite. But out of the 30 or so I own. I pick this one. Simply because Sol Niger seems to capture all his styles in one record. There are the strange sounds/nature sounds prevalent w/ ambient drone loops/tribal drumming/and covers a range of emotion. It falls a bit on the darker side but has some lighter material as well. If your a fan it's a must have. If your interested in trying him out it's a great one to start with. The man is a genius! Favorite track: Internal Haunt.

about

Sol Niger contain unrealized material recorded by Alio Die in the year 2001, mostly around the time of the winter solstice. The tracks are characterized from the editing of old recordings produced in Milan in 1990, with Massimo Iadarola plays guitar and effects.
The recordings were integrated with radionoise from an old Valvular Model.
Some new sounds of flutes and percussions were added from Gianfranco Cualbu.
