‘The Whispering Woods’ is a musical masterpiece that draws its inspiration from nature. The album creates pictorial synaesthesias, raising images of wild forests, barren wastelands, and fathomless oceans. The focus of the album is on mankind and its place in the natural world. It raises concerns about how humans treat other species and questions our culture’s disregard for treating them as equals.

The soundstage of the album is a subtle background that draws attention to Ricardo Hoffmann’s emotional baritone, which he masterfully interchanges with a falsetto. The music is a combination of delicate fingerstyle guitar and mandolin-like playing that alternates between soft and impetuous. Fans of And Also The Trees, Nick Cave, The Cure, and Fields Of The Nephilim will appreciate Saline Grace’s style.

Established in 2005, Saline Grace has always had a deeply sinister fascination and intentionally antiquated arrangements reminiscent of David Lynch’s nightmarish scenes and Nick Cave’s poetic rage. The music of ‘The Whispering Woods’ will surely draw in any listener with its captivating sound experience.
