Simone Salvatori: "To me sex is more than entertainment"

Beautiful Russian speakers be aware of the fresh interview with Simone Salvatori, which you can read at zvuki.ru. Simone told about his attitude to work in the studio, if you can compare Morrissey and Cave, and how ot to let it drag you down, if you have to deal with corpses every day.

Armageddon Gigolo played in the cave of Balve

​SPIRITUAL FRONT was a part of the PROPHECY FESTIVAL, which took place on July, 28-29th in Germany. This was a very special show in all the ways. Starting with the location, finishing with the set-list. SF shared the stage with Solstafir and the others in the Balve Cave. SF played a special ARMAGEDDON GIGOLO set to celebrate the re-release of their iconig album.
Thank you for the ten (well, let 's say 11) remarkable years of warmth, friendship, and sick passion! Celebrating 'Armageddon Gigolo' in the cave of Balve was such an incredible experience.We definitely couldn't have done it without you!! Thank for being so supportive, thanx to Prophecy for taking the risk of re printing this album too ::)))





   

Re-release of Armageddon Gigolo

Good news for the lovers of 'Armageddon Gigolo'!
Yesterday we finished to work on the re-issue of AG which is a double CD now: the old beloved one plus an extra CD with demos and original versions remastered, 3 covers (Marc Almond, Venom and The Walker Brothers), and many extra tracks.
It will be available as 2CD digipack and vinyl via Prophecy records soon...very soon...let's say after this dirty black summer!


 

MARSEILLE GIG CANCELLED

We are sorry, for reasons beyond our control, we've been forced to postpone this gig, we'll keep you updated.

Next gig: SPIRITUAL FRONT plays The Smiths and Morrissey next Sunday, June, 25th, in Padova (Italy) at Anfiteatro del Venda.

Simone joined ORE again

As Simone joined ORE on the stage for the first time couple years ago at WGT, it blew minds of thousands of fans all over the world. Although the connection between the musicians is quite deep, it's not a secret, it was a revelation to see them sharing the stage.
Their split-album "Satyriasis - Somewhere Between Equilibrium And Nihilism" is already a classic - more over a treasured rarety. Back in 2011 Simone showed up in the ORE's video "A Song 4 Hate & Devotion", and 2012 Simone joined ORE on the stage at Wave Gotik Treffen Festival, which was a big surprise - probably for everybody, even for the musicians themselves.
From then on every time Spiritual Front and Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio participating the same events they're looking for an opportunity to penetrate each other's shows.
Thanks to Schwarzer Mann for the video from WGT 2014.


Thanks for being there and see you at our next gigs!

BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS at WGT2017

Wave Gotik Treffen 2017 is now behind us. What an amazing weekend, what beautiful people and how great it was to meet good old friends there!
Friday night Simone Salvatori joined O.R.E. performance. There's always special chemistry when they are together. It's also became a traditio to sing together, when and where ever they meet.

 


On Saturday BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS performed at the Schauspiel Theater in Leipzig! Big thanks and a lot of love to Stefano Puri, Angelo Santisi, Giampiero and everybody who joined us! We are truly thankful for the beautiful evening together.




Thank you, WGT and Theater staff, for your warm hospitality, thank you to all our supporters for spending such a lovely time together, it was an intense and unforgettable night!

Special thanks for the videos to Rustblade records, franziskaevangelista23 and fish_hoffmann.

Simone shows his tatts

Simone Salvatori showed his tattoos to Reflection of Darkness-team.
Aside to a complete view to most of Simone's tattoos, you'll find out when the vocalist of Spiritual Front started getting tattooed, who are his tattoo-artists, hat meaning his tattoos have.

"I despise the mere display of style, the collection of perfect but useless tattoo, well done but without history or meaning. Of course, this is my personal point of view, and at the same time I’m conscious that not all tattoos must have a specific meaning, but the tattoos done just for being cool doesn’t work to me," - told Simone in the exclusive interview.

Spiritual Front is proud to announce that the band is now signed with Prophecy Productions.
"Armageddon Gigolo" – Spiritual Front's breakout release – will soon be reissued by Auerbach/Prophecy on CD and for the first time ever on LP. The album was recorded with musicians from Ennio Morricone's orchestra and contains the immortal SF hits "Slave", "Bastard Angel", "Jesus Died In Las Vegas" and "I Walk the (Dead)Line".
"Amour Braque" is the next studio album, on which Spiritual Front is currently working. Conceptually described as 'a sincere and cruel analysis of what love/sex relations are, a path that switches between tenderness and rot', the record updates the band's dark folk, chamber pop with standout 60's vibes.
A special "Armageddon Gigolo" set will be performed by the band at Prophecy Fest 2017.

Armageddon Gigolo Day

It's been nine years since we've first heard "Armageddon Gigolo". 
With this significant album the new era of the SPIRITUAL FRONT started. Aside of Simone Salvatori there was the whole bunch of musicians working on the record. The music was composed by an amazing composer Stefano Puri. He recorded piano, keyboards and synth as well. Electronic and acoustic guitars were by Jack Puri. Andrea Freda was traditionally responsible for the drums and percussions. Let's not forget the additional beautiful instruments, performed by nusicians of the Ennio Morricone's orchestra.



The album contains the immortal hits "Slave", "Bastard Angel", "I Walk the (Dead)Line". No concert is possible without those beloved songs. And even "Ragged Bed" and "No Kisses on the Mouth" are still possible to hear live from time to time.
"It is rather a post-modern, but innovative, mixture of Acoustic Pop, Folk, Rock'n'Roll and Western, somehow anchored in Nick Cave's music or in Ennio Morricone's soundtracks, all veiled in a romantic and bizarre dimension!" wrote the critics (of the kogaionon.com) back then. "Armageddon Gigolo was a revolution and lead thousands of music lovers into their nihilistic temptation, bringing passion and sweet pain into our lives.



Let's remember what Simone said about the album himself right after it was released in 2006:
"I'm very satisfied about it...we worked hard...for a long time...i think it's my best album 'til now.... [...] "It represents the suicide mission of a lover. Me, you, every person in this world condmend to love. To need sex, flesh, cum. Liquid. Sex is armageddon. Passions are armageddon. The end of our liberty. [...] ....it grew day after day. It grew with me... and inside the people who played in it. My first goal is to be honest with myself. Spiritual Front represnts me. I sing bout mylife. "AG" is what i am... what I was during that period. It's real music for real people."

Spiritual front in Paris

hell.o folks, I' ll perform as solo in Paris(France) on 10.07 at Bateau El Alame. Soon we' ll post the upcoming gigs.
 

New album

SPIRITUAL FRONT is working hard on their new album 'Amour braque'. More details will follow!

To rest from the tough work Simone goes to the lake. It seems to be a perfect place to chill, isn't it?

Fassbinder's birthday


Today's Rainer Werner Fassbinder's birthday. The great German director, writer and actor would turn 70 today. Fassbinder's motion pictures have a big impact on SPIRITUAL FRONT music. In fact without Fassbinder we could probably never hear of SPIRITUAL FRONT.

You can find a lot of links to his movies in SF-songs. Starting with the video-remake for the song "Sad almost a winner" finishing with the great longplay "Black Hearts in Black Suits", totally inspired and dedicated to Fassbinder. "I wrote the lyrics inspired by his characters, by his stories, even because in his movies you can always find some of your life," - said Simone about the "BHIBS"-interview.


Here's what Simone told about his passion for Fassbinder:

I confess, I've always been a big fan of cinema, I knew his works by name but I never went deeper cause I always thought he did…something like boring, gaunt kraut cinema, but I was wrong, his cinema changed my life definitely and my way to consider life and cinema too, it  was  another fundamental ‘starting point’  for SPIRITUAL FRONT.

The first movie I watched was ‘Querelle’, suggested by  I girl I usually dated that period, it was the first year of university, she told me ‘OMG, your attitude reminds me the Fassbinder movies, you should watch Querelle!’ I was impressed, she was so right, hahahaha.

My favorite films by Fassbinder are: ‘Querelle’, ‘Fox and his friends’, ‘One year with 13 moons’
I can find something of myself in many of his characters, he told us real, deep, intimate stories, we always can tragically find a little portion of ourselves in them...

About the Fassbinder's portrait-tattoo: "It was painful but it worth, I’m very proud of it, I wanted to dedicate part of my body to him, he gave me something special and I wanted to homage him."

One of the common theme between SF and Fassbinder's movies is the morbid relations between who control and who obey, especially in the love relationship, the sick relations that grow when 2 people start to need each other, and nothing change if you are the master of slave, we always need something where to lead our violence, frustrations, or even happiness or desire, this is our limit.

Fassbinder shows us how our nature is ridiculous and wretched, how our mean middle class fake ideals.

Talking about the relationships between Fassbinder and his muse Hanna Shygulla, "he found something of himself in her, it sounds absurd". "I always thought about it, she represented a sort of  highest femininity standard. They were the perfect combination, the perfect alchemy," - said Simone. However, "who’s the person could have a long term relationship with him? He was so severe, extreme, humoral, hard to deal with, he had many dark side, I can t blame her if she never told him about maternity, well, I’m pretty sure he was great man, but living with him, sounds so extreme. It’s hard to combine the lives of such artists like them. It could be a time bomb!"


Probably he put in his cinema all his anger, love and everything. If you read his biography you can notice his life was full of death, abandons, uncertain paths etc…I mean it does justify you from selfdestructive attitude, drug and alcohol addiction, but sometimes they could sound as an alibi. I just think he had a extreme will to live, to communicate, he couldn’t wait his senility he couldn’t wait any longer.

SF fanart

SPIRITUAL FRONT inspires and encourages people to create their own art. No matter if it is a cover song, a film, a music video, or a picture, it will always be appreciated. Fans all over the world keep presenting their stuff, inspired by SF music. And here are some of them.

Simone inspires film-makers

Big news for the SPIRITUAL FRONT fans who also are into cinema!
Paola Rotasso (the director of SF-videos "Odete" and "Dear Lucifer") finished the script for her first feature film. It is going to be a psychological thriller. The main male character was inspired by Simone H. Salvatori. Obviously, the soundtrack for the motion picture contains Spiritual Front songs.



We are totally thrilled and wish a lot of luck for Paola and hope to see the film soon on the big screens!

And while waiting for the release of the film, don't forget to check out the video section for the musical videos of SPIRITUAL FRONT!
 

SIMONE'S BIRTHDAY

Simone Salvatori, the mastermind of the SPIRITUAL FRONT, turns 40 today.

Tanti auguri, Simone!

Update for Greece

The accident with the cancelation of the concert in Athens made a huge impression on Spiritual Front. Any kind of deprivation of the free speech has no excuse! Spiritual Front played in many other countries, including eastern Europe, where there are a lot of problems with human rights, but never did the musicians had any troubles because of this.
And here is another statement about the Athens' accident:

"Athens deeper!!
So...it seems that all the accusations/blaming etc etc were addressed to other bands and people involved in the same greek event BUT not to Spiritual front! thank God this time stupidity flew over us. Nothing changes when it comes 'Free speech', nothing changes my opinion about those who spend their time being cocky behind a rusty pc sending senseless sentences around the world ruining other people lives (reputation, work, event or whatever), it's ridiculous and coward. Move your asses and show us your names and faces, idiot fuckin' wankers!!!!"

Athens (Greece) cancelled

Athens cancelled!!!
Apparently police has been advised by some blind minded, idiot groups of people about the advent of …ambiguous, malicious, evil studs like Spiritual front and co, seems that these people are scared about freedom of speech, about those who think different and the easiest and most courageous way was to not allow our show through miserable coercive ways, prevent us from opening our mouths make 'em fell better and safer!!!! I’m very sorry for our greek fans, I really hope we’ll meet soon again!

SPIRITUAL FRONT COME TO GERMANY

BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS

A collaboration born of a long separation. Seven years after the highly acclaimed ARMAGEDDON GIGOLO, Simone Salvatori and Stefano Puri once again find their paths crossing.
BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS is the result of three years of work,
composed by Stefano Puri specifically for SPIRITUAL FRONT,
with Simone Salvatori lending his voice and interpretation (as intense and charismatic as ever) to the composer's music.
The poems of Reiner Werner Fassbinder are given new light as they materialize into musical form
as Stefano Puri sits at the piano and joins Simone Salvatori on a voyage of no return.
The SYMPOSIUM ENSEMBLE and the BLACK HEARTS CHOIR round out the endeavor.
The composer's writing - in one moment minimal and introspective, in the next dark and theatrical
- follows ancestral pathways along which the singers voice moves between intimacy and majesty,
between heavy chords and light harmonies, between airy string passages and obscure choral harmonies.
A concept album more akin to an opera than to the traditional LP, BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS
is a fascinating symphonic journey that takes us through the darkest nihilistic sides of both
the composer and the icon of "Suicide Pop".

From Franz Schubert to Nick Cave, Michael Nyman to David Tibet, from Arvo Pärt to Marc Almond... with no way back.
The album will be available in 4 different formats:
Digipack CD,Colored vinyl 299 copies with unreleased songs, Limited Box (299 copies) Contains:
2CD, Postcard, Sticker, Silver Heart Pendant, Black Velvet Bag.

Ultra Limited Deluxe Bag (Only 99 Copies!) Contains:
Limited Colored Vinyl , Limited Box, 2CD, Bonus CD, Postcard, Sticker, Silver Heart Pendant,
Poster, Black Velvet Bag, Certificate Of Authenticity.

Spiritual front new album! Open Wounds (lim. Hardback Book + 2CD)

Songs are like open wounds. Music can hurt. Can strike new wounds and tear up old ones. No one is more aware of this than „SIMONE HELLVIS“ SALVATORI.
His feverish music is a diary of his failures and triumphs, a deep scar running through his work.
He finds pleasure in the pain it causes him, sheds tears for the lust it evokes in him.
Like an Italian JOHNNY CASH, he clads his life in intimate ballads of becoming and withering, of sex and death.
SPIRITUAL FRONT is the Folk Noir crossbreed of ENNIO MORRICONE and NICK CAVE – Suicide Pop from a decadent otherworld.

Where secret passions are whispered into darkness, where dream and waking, intoxication and hangover dance closely, „Open Wounds“ feels at home: Morbid Mafia folklore for hedonistic self-destructors, murder ballads for decadent lotus-eaters.
Like a heavy red wine, SPIRITUAL FRONT‘s music gets better and better over the years – ever more exhilarating, ever more effective.
As if SIMONE SALVATORI had to reach a certain age to understand his music properly.
As if he had to accept that living means suffering. Now, the erotic enchantment of his masterpiece „Armageddon Gigolo“ is back.
On „Open Wounds“, it mates with delicate prowess and baffling arrangements that would invoke envy in every Mafia orchestra.

Sacred profoundness turns to sweaty sheets when SIMONE SALVATORI sings for his soul, when he trembles, hope, loves, suffers and lives.
The machismo and his guitar, joined by the orchestra - „Open Wounds“ is the epitome of Suicide Pop.
Sexy to the brim, sensual even in the face of certain death, full of whipping urgency.
To this, the bonus CD comes as a sharply acentuated contrast, uniting instrumentals, alternate versions and stunning reworks:
A calm and very moody view into the artistic life of this abyssic gigolo.
This second album is like the cuddling after the all-consuming act of love that is „Open Wounds“ - and SPIRITUAL FRONT is the lover
that disappears before dawn. Only a dream? The wounds tell a different story.

Double-CD in book format (appr. 14 x 21 cm)
