LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE BIOGRAPHY
Lacrimas Profundere is a gothic-doom metal band from Germany.LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE GENRES
Lacrimas Profundere was founded in 1993 by guitarist Oliver Schmid. At the time, the band was strongly influenced by doom metal, and made use of feminine vocals and classical elements. With the entrance of vocalist Anja H√∂tzendorfer, they drew enough attention to themselves to be able to record their debut, entitled ... and the Wings Embraced Us, which was released in 1995 and was followed by La Naissance d‚Äôun R√™ve, from 1997.
After said releases, the band was granted a deal with Napalm Records which included five albums. An harpist was added to the band's line-up and they proceeded to record Memorandum (1999).
Burning: A Wish from 2001 was Lacrimas Profundere's first album to receive attention from the international specialized press. This album featured the removal of the band's classical elements to some degree, and was also the first time they employed baritone vocals, supplied by Oliver's brother, Christopher Schmid. Their first international tour then began, including countries of Europe and Latin America.
Lacrimas Profundere's subsequent albums were Fall, I Will Follow from 2002 and Ave End from 2004. Recently their newest albums has been brought in the shops: Filthy Notes for Frozen Hearts.
Again, the formula of heavy guitars and the low smooth voice of the leadsinger brings a nice soothing sound. The dark soft song "Sad Theme For A Marriage" will sure keep you in silence...
