Mario Infantes, the Spanish born lead singer of Metal Blade-signed band Cult of Lilith, is a visual and music artist based in Iceland. His show-stopping vocal power has drawn the attention of metal fans and publications across the world. Recently he began experimenting with synths, drum machines and virtual instruments and the result is his first instrumental album – his first album for Lost Future Records.
On Antidote to a Turbulent Mind, Mario Infantes has painstakingly crafted a record of synth soundscapes that brings the listener on a voyage deep into the mind of the artist. The album follows a man after he consumes a psychedelic tincture and descends into his own fears, desires and obsessions. The songs range from 8-bit chiptune to Kitaro influenced ambient pieces while also maintaining the tension of a horror movie soundtrack. Infantes weaves these together into a cohesive whole that allows the listener to apply their own interpretation to the journey.
Mario Infantes writes:
It was never clear to me what kind of album it would be, or what genre, but I did always know the title of the album. When I was at my worst peaks of anxiety, for some strange reason, this title popped up in my mind, ‘Antidote To A Turbulent Mind’. And I think it’s because, back then, making this record, starting this solo path, was the antidote to my own mind, so I hope it’s the same for some of the listeners.
Antidote to a Turbulent Mind, is released on July 7 2023 via Lost Future and can be pre-ordered HERE
