After the conclusion of the successful Vampirate trilogy, vocalist Nad Sylvan was considering a different approach for his next project. The new album, Spiritus Mundi, centers around the poems coming from Nobel Prize winning William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), who Sylvan calls 'one of the finest poets to come out of Ireland.' Not having to write the lyrics himself this time gave Nad the opportunity to solely focus on the music. And being off the road due to the pandemic allowed for more time to mix and perfect every aspect. The result is a collection that Sylvan calls his best work. The album marks a shift musically from Sylvan's previous outing focusing more on the lyrics and vocals in tandem with gorgeous orchestration and timely melodies. Sylvan has always managed to cull together a notable cast of guest musicians for his album and this album follows suit.
