about

Of Knowledge and Revelation, Nero Kane’s third studio album, was created with the same team of the previous one: it was recorded near Venice in a fertile collaboration with producer Matt Bordin (Squadra Omega / Omega Mai / Italian Occult Psychedelia) of Outside Inside Studio, and features visual artist, performer and filmmaker Samantha Stella, whose voice has been defined as “evoking the ghost of Nico”. In the last five years Kane and Stella performed together for Nero Kane’s concerts in clubs, theaters, churches, museums and art galleries in Italy, Europe, UK and Los Angeles. Their live performances have been described as journeys through darkness and melancholy, with the creation of a morbid beauty and an intensity which make them unique.

The album is launched by the video for the lead single Lady of Sorrow shot by Samantha Stella, who directed also the experimental films for Nero Kane’s previous records, where Kane and Stella are the protagonists. A garden of dried flowers welcomes the preacher Kane in a visionary and circular journey where love and death are exchanging their roles as in a Dante's circle between Heaven and Hell. A reference to the incipit that introduces the album, an excerpt from the writings of the mystic Mechthild Von Magdeburg, from which the title of the record is taken.

Nero Kane describes the album with these words:

“Of Knowledge and Revelation marks a new path in my constant spiritual pilgrimage through darkness, fog and light. A journey made of solitude, of rise and fall, in a world that recalls Dante's Limbo. I love feeding myself with visions, literature and painting in particular. Inspirations came from old paintings like "Ascent of the Blessed" (1490) by Hieronymus Bosch, engravings like Dante's "Divina Commedia" (1861) by Gustave Dorè, and writings like "Tears and Saints" (1937) by Emil M. Cioran, “Hymns to the Night” (1800) by Novalis and "The Flowing Light of the Godhead" (1250-1270) by German mystic Mechthild Von Magdeburg, who also appeared in my previous album Tales of Faith and Lunacy.”
