Lacrimosa are back!!!!It is not easy to listen to Lacrimosa's sound.....their music is the True Gothic metal in which the arrangements take the structure from Classic Music. There's not metal in their compositions but there's much poetry....melancholy, and deepness.
Singer's voice seems to tell the music that is full of arrangements ...and is well produced. I'ts difficult to describe the complexity of these compositions; Churchmusic in the first song that is something wonderful in which the atmosphere is filled by chorus ....The second track Durch Nacht und Flut is something different but i love this song...composed with too much care, in which the melody rules the song but the arrangements are full of classic parts....congratulations!!!!!!
Sacrifice is churcmusic but some parts remind me the 70's music.....another wonderful idea..and the chorus gives a particular touch to this song.
In Apart we've the pleasure to listen Anne 's voice and it's wonderful.......what a beautiful voice!!!!!!The music is very sad and it's arranged in a perfect way; guitars are not always present but the compostion are fill of poetry music........and it's well in this way...this is their personal sound!
A note of disappointment regarding the track no.5 "Ein Hauch von Menschlichkeit "that is a little bit boring ...better said, more tha a little bit for me !!!...while "Malina" gets a particoular arrangement but the melody is not at the top .
Die Schreie sind verstummt - Requiem für drei Gamben und Klavier closes this cd....in the best way..and i may say that this is a very good album for this storic band.
If you like classic music, churchmusic, and Gothic, Baroque.etc.....ok...this album is perfect ,this is not an album for Metal defenders or New Gothic Metal fans(To/ Die /For, Sentenced ,ecc...).
