Some musicians will go down in Metal history as being overlooked geniuses. One of them would be Tilo Wolff, the German mastermind behind Gothic monster Lacrimosa, one of them would be Rowan London, the Australian mastermind behind Gothic monument Virgin Black. I think I am on to something here… Ever since the release of their sophomore album Sombre Romantic in 2002, the band has had its ups and downs. After a 4-year release drought, they came back strong this year with no less than three albums recorded. Requiem - Mezzo Forte is the first one of the "Requiem" trilogy to surface in early April.

Rating: 10 I rarely (.5% of the time) will rate anything perfect but this album gets it.

  Not really metal, but still amazing. There is something about this album that makes me listen to it a lot.

  Perhaps the greatest gothic metal album of all time. This is an absolutely breathtaking artistic beauty to behold!
