My Silent Wake’s new acoustic/ambient/experimental album ‘Damnum Per Saeculorum’ is due for release on 31 July 2020 via Opa Loka Records on CD and digital formats. ‘Damnum…’ is My Silent Wake’s 11th full-length album since forming in 2005 and their fourth in the acoustic/ambient/experimental vein – 15 songs for 15 years. The self-produced album was recorded in the band’s home studios in various sessions around the UK in late 2019/early 2020 and was mixed by Simon Bibby (keyboards, vocals), with cover artwork by David MacLean (guitars, vocals). The title translates to ‘Loss Throughout the Ages’ which describes the theme of the album, with styles ranging from acoustic medieval songs to futuristic soundscapes.
