The original post

Posted by The Alchemist on 10.07.2006 at 22:08
So, the thread for this excellent band which has been one the best gothic metal bands ever.

I really like this band, the musical quality, the instruments management, many things... and well, one of the most important things: the originality in the music, and in the album covers.

So, what do you think?

Agree with you, Daggon. The album is just boring. Basically the only Lacrimosa album that listened to in the past is Elodia, which is awesome, but I never listened to anything else. So compared to that album, the new one is just not good.


I haven't put too much attention to the "middle era" of Lacrimosa which is the most popular and fan favorite it seems... But I really love their first three albums. Their debut is some of the most overlooked music I've heard, really touching and very intense at times . Don't understand why the fans don't pay too much attention to the first 2 albums.

Their first 2 albums have their fine moments, however they haven't settled their sound yet. A lot of it feels underdeveloped, especially Tilo's screams who really suck on those albums.

Disagree:
- It's not like they didn't settled their sound by that moment... they jus had a different sound, one that was heavily influenced by dark wave and indusrial stuff, not that different from acts like Sopor Aeternus.
- I love his vocals on those two albums, a more humble and desperate tone than anything he did afterwards.

Lacrimosa began to sound "too nice" for me... That's why I preffer Angst over albums like, let's say.... Echos. That album is good and all that but I just preffer their previous style, far darker. Satura is probably the best album in the sense that it has the best of those two worlds.

Few songs from the later albums had such an impact on me than Der Letze Hilfeschrei from their debut... God those sounds from the heart beating are stressful.

Those albums were more raw, unpolished and there is a bigger feel of desolation to it. The core was still there however, but just raw and not polished yet. Than again some like more raw than polished.

I do like some of the more raw atmosphere songs, some of my favourites are: Einsamkeit, Diener Eines Geistes and Loblied Auf Die Zweisamkeit. I must admit I haven't listen the debut that often.

Why Lacrimosa isn't in Metal-Archive


Good question. I'm wondering what people's opinions on Lacrimosa are anyway.

Being from Canada, not many people that I know of will give 'em the time of day. I think they've got some creative, masterful music that certainly conjures up a broad range of emotions. Not "run of the mill" metal that's for sure...
