The story of Love, Faith, Trust and Devotion based on the biblical concept, the second album by Russian indie-pop duo.

Shadow of the Saints is the second album by russian duo thewalkingicon and the first release on the american label Negative Gain Productions.

Since their 2019 debut "Galaxy of Youth" Sasha Rempel and Dmitry Osipov made a huge move and produced 11 tracks filled with deep reverbs, ethereal pads, celestial voices and distant drone noises, highly dense and solid musically and united by a strong concept inspired by the story of St.

Joseph, the earthly Christ father. Love, faith, trust and devotion. Is there a price for giving everything you've got to the ones you love? Can rumors and public opinion do anything to your devotion if your faith is strong? Can you be a loving father and a husband knowing that you are not chosen for the fame divine and staying in the shadow of the saints is your fate? And is every move forseen or the man is the lord of everything? And can you overcome all the grief and despair armed with love only? The album was mixed by the band's old friend, Moscow based downtempo producer Sgt.

Penarlaster and includes collaboration with italian act In.Visible (Andrea Morsero) and two remixes from Nova-Spes and Amnistia (Leipzig, Germany).

Press Quotes: "Listening to thewalkingicon again after they contacted me many months ago brings up odd feelings of wonder; the vocals on this new song sound as if they belong to some kind of bright pop song yet the tough drumming brings about themes of EBM and industrial mechanics.

This is not taking into account some of the glitch-like notes in the background and the gorgeous backing synth either.

Whatever they did, it's magical and well worth a listen." _STEVEN GULLOTTA, Brutal Resonance
