Lacrimas Profundere : Memorandum




They are not that well known but this is Lacrimas Profundere's third work. The cover already gives the fact away that they have a strong Gothic-metal influence. I however would not like to compare them to any other bands in that genre as they have their own sound. From the first note to the last a melancholic, sad but also warm and bombastic atmosphere is let loose upon the listener.

The great variation of vocal styles compliments the intelligent and diverse music. Music in which they have not feared using unconventional instruments, such as a harp. This use of the harp is one of their strong points elevating a song like 'The Crown of Leaving' to an almost unreachable high level. Next to a harp we can hear violins, piano, black screams, clean vocals, spoken word, grunts, female vocals, fast blackish parts, slow doom parts, bombastic gothic parts, etc. In short Lacrimas Profundere create a mix of the best from a lot of different music styles without sounding cheesy or overdone.
