The gleam of cosmic light reflects on polished surfaces, sometimes tracing long smooth curves, other times ending in edges, outlining a powerful machine that pierces a path between the gravitational pull of a black hole and the attraction of a newly-born star’s brightness. If Lewis Fautzi ́s sound could be captured in material form, it would look something like this.
However, there was a certain curiosity about Lewis’ next release. Despite his own personal style, releasing a new atmospheric and experimental album, was not the obvious option. ‘Manner of Death’ was produced during one of the worst moments of his life, after a heavy accident where he broke both legs.
The feelings he put into the album are not relatable for most of us but after listening to “Manner of Death”, they definitely are understandable.
