Staff review by
If you want to give the name of a real polemical band, Lacrimas Profundere will probably be a good choice. Worshiped by the metalhead community for two of its releases, "Memorandum" and "Burning: A Wish", the band is not so popular anymore. The problem comes from a radical musical change since that the German musicians have decided to plays Gothic Rock a la Sister Of Mercy. Sure I cannot say that it's the worst music ever released, some of the new songs are still good in my opinion but of course this is really disturbing and if some bands like Moonspell or Paradise Lost have understood that it was maybe a good idea to come back to their Metal roots, this is not the case of Lacrimas Profundere. If you hate the "new" Lacrimas Profundere, "Songs For The Last View" will not be for you…

Way too underrated... A Peal, Veins, While, And God's Ocean, We Shouldn't Be Here or Sacrifical Lamb are brilliant songs. Don't get why this one is so low rated. The Grandiose Nowhere pales in comparison with this one.
