LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE: "Songs
for the last View" lacrimas
thanks for promo to: Napalm Records
Dark melancholy and desperation.
the change of style LP have realized two almost sufficient releases. Now
they comes back with an album that even if it's nothing original shows a
good attitude to compose
appreciable involving songs that are result of many influences;
without shadows of doubt Him and 69 Eyes but also Type O Negative and
Sister Of Mercy.
does reminds of the debut album of this band?....Forget it!!! Nowadays
all songs are full of darkness and romanticism and I can say that the
band is able to make good grooves and compose good gothic ballads. If
you like the already mentioned bands ...you can appreciate this album
even if it's nothing new....the problem could be indeed the lack
of originality...but it's no longer a problem if you look over...and try
to listen the songs...without making comparisons.
cold atmospheres in which Rob reminds of 69 Eyes' singer but not only. Sometimes
he's very similar to the most inspired Ville Valo...try to listen to
“And God's Ocean” in which you can't but dream, listening to this
song...It gets a very sad mood mixed to that melancholy that is typical
of this style..
other ballad “A dead Man” seems to much similar to something already
composed by other bands...but anyway it's another dreaming song.
band tries to find inspirations from sad piano, arpeggio and synth
atmospheres ,and thanks to the easy structures the band is able to
create interesting tracks like” Sacrificial Lambs” that could be a
Him single-song...or the claustrophobic “While” that is full of dark
melancholy and desperation but with that typical romantic touch in which
the voice is essential to this task...
guitars I can say that the arrangements are very simple...a good
distortion and a good clean guitar, but, in general, the
production is however good, and gives importance to this release.
band will not disappoint you if you like gothic romantic
rock/metal...but attention...The band sound exactly like the mix of the
above listed bands and sometimes is too much near to those ones in all
