Belgian singer Dominique Van Cappellen-Waldock has announced the release of a new album called Fleur de Feu: A Fire Ceremony which will be out on May 27th via Caliban Records. According to the press release, ‘Fleur de Feu’ is an intense, spiritual journey of epic proportions that spans a wide breadth of psychoscopic sounds. An array of traditional instrumentation meets cinematic electronics that convey meditative explorations of the divine, while remaining grounded in its core message – one of isolation and despair. In its presentation of expansive soundscapes cut with soaring, celestial vocals, it’s an album of not just personal introspection, but universal.

The artist explains that the album “offers a music performance and a fire ceremony in remembrance of the loved ones we lost in the course of the confinements of 2020 and 2021, whose funerals we were not allowed to attend due to safety measures. Indeed, without these essential gatherings and ceremonies, it can be difficult to begin the mourning process and one can be left with a feeling of emptiness, anger and sadness”.
