The creative intention behind "We are Falling" is to convey spiritual paths that lead back to nature, which we can only preserve through active (re)action. To this end, BY THE SPIRITS makes use of a wonderful folk aesthetic: melancholic but energetic and fiery guitar playing, paired with subtle but powerful percussion in the background, seems to awaken forgotten eras like an echo. Michał Krawczuk's profound vocal style stands out remarkably from the whole, creating a perfect balance between emotion and expression.
Expressive lyrics and catchy melodies characterize the album from beginning to end. Even on the first run-through, they convey intense soundscapes to the listener between longing and hope on the one hand, and decay and decline on the other.
Originally released in 2017 in very limited quantities, the record gained instant classic status in the dark and neofolk scene. Collaborations with Death In Rome, In Ruins, and Osi and the Jupiter followed.
For this re-release, BY THE SPIRITS teamed up with Valkenstijn of MOSAIC, who contributed additional vocals and instruments for the bonus material and handled the production and visual side.
