Staff review by
Well oh well, Lacrimas Profundere is one of those bands that have covered the essence of melancholy in various aspects throughout their 15 year old discography. But what is in the past remains in the past and their early doom/death releases or the later doom/gothic metal ones are no longer present, what followed was more gothic rock oriented compositions and nowadays through a more modern and, dare I say, commercial view. I will try not to fall in the trap of comparing something very different in sound, past and present, and if I do there is the album compared only to their post-2004 era, if my words reach to a comparisson point.

"This is so unexpected. We got ALL the votes? Wow.

Thanks goes out to the bitch that inspired this heartfelt and sorrowful album. Your fine sense for melodrama will for always reflect in the somber and emotive atmosphere of this majestic album. Also thanks to our singer Vitacca who really carries this album with his distressing vocals.


-- Lacrimas Profundere's acceptance speech during the Metal Storm Awards 2010 Gala, March 2011.

They don't disappoint me at all. In fact, this album is way much better than their last one. The vocalist does it as perfectly as Christopher did. And not only that, the music is just as deep and creative as in Christopher's era.

Still, it can't be compared to what they were in Christopher's era but, good effort!

Their vocalist reminds me of Ville Valo.
