about

The idea of the ‘Black Hearts in Black Suits’ appeared, as the frontman of SPIRITUAL FRONT Simone Salvatori and Stefano Puri started to get in touch again after seven years, when they recorded together the album ‘Armageddon Gigolo’. “The initial idea was to record a bunch of piano/vocals songs as a re start. Slowly this collaboration started to take a bigger form unless it became a sort of real opera with strings and choir.” - Simone says. Even if the album came out with the label “Spiritual Front” - forget everything you heard before by this band. There is neither a suicidal Neofolk of ‘Armageddon Gigolo’, nor the dirty pop-cabaret of ‘Rotten Roma Casino’.

Arranged with classical piano and other real instruments and formed by Simone’s vocals and choir this album is rather a theatrical musical drama. Maybe this piece isn’t for the stage of the Milan opera house “La Scala”, but it is already too big for MP3 format. The album is out on vinyl as well. And this is for good, because you possibly will have a wish to listen to this marvellous work in the best quality. You’ll dream about this album, you’ll listen to it and forget about everything in this world, swallowing every tiny detail and blessing every minute of listening to it. As for the lyrics, the songs are telling the stories of difficult love relationships: love agony, jealousy, passion, sexuality, love addiction, sickness – everything what poets of all the times and nationalities tried to describe. The main inspiration was Rainer Werner Fassbinder, the legendary German director. The cherry on that pie is interpretation of the song ‘Each Man kills the Thing he loves’ (lyrics by Oscar Wilde, music by Peer Raben), which is the leitmotif of the Fassbinder’s film ‘Querell’, and SPIRITUAL FRONT creativity as well (you’ll find that lyrics, for example, in the booklet of the album ‘Armageddon Gigolo’).

Listening to this album could be as challenging, as when you’re looking up into the skies and realize, that you’re so little and unimportant in this huge universe. The ‘Black Hearts…’ is so big and beautiful, that there is no chance to overvalue it. Dear music lovers with black hearts, how many times have you asked yourself, if the modern musicians are able for something real and impressive? I’m happy to find a positive answer on this. And if you are ready for the real thing – open your ears and hearts for the ‘Black Hearts in Black Suits’.

about

Spiritual Front Rome, Italy

Spiritual Front is an act from Rome. The style described as "nihilist suicide pop", although elements of neoclassical and rock music, melancholic folk, as well as tango are prevalent, along with a recurring experimental feel. From dark, wailing experimental folk in the beginning, the sound began to transform and grow, to where it is now compared to the work of Nick Cave, Swans, and Scott Walker. ... more

Track Name: Life's Too Long
Inside of me there is no truth
A street that won’t change after all
Grant me today a better change
May everything remain the same

My gaze among dirty glasses
and many stupidfake intentions
Where’s progress when you talk of me?
Am I brave enough to change?

Should I believe u again?
Your mom would have preferred a better life for you
She’ s right cause a loser remains a loser anyway
And you know it too

But life’s too long when you
can’t achieve anything
Few coins to shut their mouths
Too long whenyou
can’t adore anything
Too Many drinks to shut my mouth today

Give me a drink and some love crumbs
If I would die now in your arms
Would you see what I see?
I will be able to surrender
Because it’s how you like me

I wanna give you what you deserve
Do you still need me in your bed?
Take him, or chose another one
I never meant to run away

I will work hard if I need to
Paying love ifhave to
Obey if it could make me
Nice toeverybody’s eyes
And then I’ll leave or praise

But life’s too long when you
can’t achieve anything
Few coins to shut their mouths
Too long whenyou
can’t adore anything
Too Many drinks to shut my mouth today

Remember? do you remember?
But I would never like to talk about the past
It could make us even more tired and bored
Swept away by the sense of guilt that carried me
I’ve tried to be better a man but far from you all
Don’t mention love, don t mention love. Remember? doyou remember? Don’ t mention love
Track Name: Eternally Yours
I was justcurious to see you
I spent a lil’money for you
cause I knew you wouldn’t have last for a while
It’s sad to sad but you had few chances to succeed
Would you wear elegant?
Your ruined but shining shoes
If only your will would be enough to make us-satisfied

I’m living every wild desire like it would be
I’m living every wild desire like it would be eternally yours

Chose ‘em if you want
Never so far from a constant pale love
Would they give you real certainties?
How much should you give me of your real sexuality?
I’m desperately looking for you
Never so far from the light
Everything will be different tomorrow
And every time I swear there won’t be anyone else

Those like us stink of destiny
Help me unlessyou should
And then no I won’t have any questions
Maybe until theunwelcome tomorrow

I’m livingevery wild desire like it would be
I’m living every wild desire like it would be eternally yours
Track Name: The Only Sin
You’ll never bemine
I’d prefer youto belong to every man
Of every land of every bordello of every far border ofevery place
Why am I trying to posses you?
When I know that nothing will remain of us
They are waiting for you and I want to be there

tell me that you can really love
Possessing us this is the only fault
tell me that you can really love
tell me that you can really love
Belonging us this is the only sin

Don’t tell me if it was good
I knew the abyss before you
Tell me about all the lovers you had
Chose again the man you prefer And I’ll be at yourside
We devour the same nectar
Fucking our souls in that short instant of freedom
That our executioners gave us

tell me you can really love
What love means for u
Possessing us this is the only fault
tell me that you can really love
tell me that you can really love
Belonging us this is the only sin
Track Name: No Forgiveness
To forget is to survive
Destroy ourselves for not loving anymore
Will you make my pain revive feeding it with yoursmile
With a lie tomake you come back
Do you want me as me man or want me as a girl?
Then I deceive myself
Let everything remain the same
Let all my work be blamed
And my name mean shame

I’ve been deceived by your kindness
Flattered by your vague promise and desires
Adore the vile who adore us deceived so easily
And Make my heart of stone and resignation
I remain emotionless
Cut my throat while I face our agony
I deceive myself to serve you again

I’ll be far from you all Chased away and blamed
Just ready tobe sacrificed
no father to imitate no mother to blame
Naked I implore you to not leave me
You who seat upon on your throne
I will lie next to you like the sacrificial lamb

There’s no forgiveness if you have denied yourself
Even if you are disgusted by me
Your life values more than mine
How could you love me or hate before you havecomprehended me?

There’s no forgiveness if you can’t renegade yourself
Oh let everything remain the same
Track Name: I Just Can't Have Nothing
Through you I’m living my worst desire
You are the boat who’s sailing across my flesh
The plague that will make me sterile
the infectedblood that made me alive

I am nothing Iam nothing
I have no will nor decision
I’m the procreating corpse
I tried to live but I’ ve been just able to survive
Survive in the vilest way

I just can’t have nothing
I just can’t get free cause I never wanted

I’m the dead child that you disowned
I’m the blind who sees his gallows
I’ll walk on this earth denying the only god
Who pretended to love it
Hand in hand with the tyrant who condemned me forever
Hating you more than any other thing
You forced me to believe you
I left everything for having you

You are destroying what is left of me
You know I’ll never be among your winners
Neither among the gods you adored
Praying for not going back anymore
Don’t drag me to the scorn of my enemies

Faith where is my faith? I’d have it to adore you
And where is your purity?
I’d hold you and never be afraid
Not having thecourage to cheat
I just wanna understand
Track Name: Choose Death
Who consumed my dreams?
Who hide my name for not being idolized?
May I be deprived of every virtue or praise
May every petty recrimination decry all my history

I will choose the death
That’s the way to love life
May this life would look like you
Every man has the right to fail
And you should grant it to me now

You convinced me to wave useless flags
To immolate me for an ideal that never existed
Curve on my flesh the seal of the most miserable end
But never deny that you really loved me

Remember me if you can remember me if you can

I will choose the death
That’s the way to love the life
May this life would look like you
Every man has the right to fail
And you should grant it to me now
Every man has the right to fail
And you should grant it to me now

Every man has the right to fail
And you should grant it to me now
