Brand new studio album by the legendary Folk act – over 7 years after the latest new recordings! Even after a long absence from the studio mic, the 11 songs on "For the Life of the World" show that Joe Budenholzer is still an important pioneer of neo- and apocalyptic folk, which he skillfully lends a traditional touch with the elements of classical music, the mysticism of which makes you start the album all over again. Backworld grew out of the World Serpent apocalyptic folk scene in London, combining tradi- tional English folk, experimental and minimalist classical with fin-de-siecle mysticism. Founder Joseph Budenholzer’s collaborators on this new album include David Tibet (Track 11), MAYa Hardinge (Track 8) and Laure Kyle (Track 1,2,7).

Review BLACK Magazin:

The background music remains true to itself. The acoustic guitar plays the main role, with 6minimalist percussion, often just the tambourine, a bass and subtle keyboard arrangements in the background. Add to this the gentle vocals of mastermind Joseph Budenholzer, who is also accompanied by female voices (MAYa Hardinge and Laure Kyle) on some tracks. Basi- cally, all the ingredients that we've come to expect from this neofolk project since the World Serpent days can be found here. 7 years have passed since there has been studio music in the form of a one-act opera from the Hudson Valley. Before that, there hadn't been any new songs since 2011. All the more surprising was the announcement at the end of last year that this new album is in the starting blocks and even with the participation of David Tibet, who wrote the last song "The Lamb and the Lion" and also sings it accompanied by menacing cello music. Apparently not all the bonds of the World Serpent family have been torn apart yet. This last song picks up the tone sequence of the first track on this album and sums up what has become of the new world and the new heaven!
