Lacrimas Profundere

Lacrimas Profundere is a German gothic metal band spearheaded by guitarist Oliver Nikolas Schmid, whose revolving door lineup rivals even Spinal Tap's (or Jethro Tull's) in terms of multiple musicians over the years. Founded in the Southern Bavarian municipality of Waging am See, circa 1993, Lacrimas Profundere debuted with 1995's ...And the Wings Embraced Us, featuring his brother Christopher Schmid on vocals, plus violinist Anja Hötzendorfer, flautist/keyboard player Eva Stöger, bassist Markus Lapper, and drummer Christian Greisberger. Despite such exotic instrumentation (for heavy metal at least), this and subsequent LPs like ...La Naissance d'un Rêve (1997), Memorandum (1999), and Burning: A Wish (2001), generally ran parallel with the doomy goth of mid-period Anathema, Katatonia and My Dying Bride. By comparison, subsequent efforts like Fall, I Will Follow (2002), Ave End (2004), and Filthy Notes for Frozen Hearts (2006), saw Lacrimas Profundere following in the footsteps of the bands cited above, plus the likes of Tiamat and Moonspell, in leaving many of their metallic tendencies behind in order to embrace more traditional gothic rock wholeheartedly. 2007 also marked the departure of Christopher Schmid -- the last remaining original band member, save his brother -- and the arrival of new singer Rob Vitacca, likely signifying additional changes to Lacrimas Profundere's sound and creative direction in the immediate future. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

Not bad pretty good
Interesting fellas. By the comments I'd probably like their older stuff as well if they lost their vocalist. I do like them though. Very interesting to my ears. ^^ I don't listen to a lot of gothic or doom metal. I'm more for melodic stuff and general metal but thumbs up! ^.^
Not as impressed, to say the least, as the others who left comments. Almost downthumbed the song.

Their stylistic aesthetic has evolved over time; originally a death doom rooted gothic metal band, they have progressivel y changed their style to a more mainstream gothic style with the later albums. I dont listen them after they change music style because band founder and vocal left the bend. IT is not same band anymore.
I think this band gives me eargasms. This band came up on 69 eyes radio, been in love ever since the first time I heard them.
burbtum
unto num,..
nturner1987
Discovered these guys through Paradise Lost, and I have to say i'm addicted!
finding all kinds of s**t I didn't know existed - mind blowing amazing!!!!! !
Good mood music :)
Wish this band was a bit harder...at least the song Filthy Notes For Frozen Hearts. And my god is it long...too long.
HIM is my favorite band by far, and I don't think they sound similar at all. They remind me more of the 69 Eyes than HIM. They're very good, but I've yet to find a band that even reminds me of HIM =)
I recently stumbeled upon Lacrimas Profundere. I love them.
Had a listen to their recent album (probably not added to Pandora yet - I think the album is called The Grandoise Nowhere or something like that). Bleh. What a shame .. :-/
there are similarities to HIM for sure--that being said, HIM rules, and i like this as well.
I'm in agreement with the comments on Ave End on this page...
SNLs Hanz and Franz have a band?
True metal? It's called opinion, Willow.
Ave End bored me a bit as well...
Fall, I Will Follow though catches my ears though...
I gree with Little Miss Spookiness. Ave End isn't .. idk ..
Filthy Notes is, I think, their best. I don't like any of the songs off Ave End for some reason.
I thought that by now i wouldn't mind baritone vocals, but the stuff in Filthy Notes truly might have to be an acquired taste for me.

everything I heard is good though. :)
Filthy Notes For Frozen Hearts was also my introduction to this band, but I quite liked the tracks I heard (ergo why I bought the album, which I've enjoyed so far). I'm not sure if Pandora has played anything from Fall, I Will Follow for me yet.
yeah, the first Lacrimas Profundre songs i heard came off of Filthy Notes for Frozen Hearts and I didn't like them.
the tracks off of Fall, I Will Follow from what I heard from one of my stations are really good. try sampling that album, Matthew.
Just picked up Filthy Notes For Frozen Hearts, and it hasn't done anything to make me regret buying it (unlike the last album I purchased, Operatika's The Calling, which was frankly ruined by too much guitar solo wankery). Now to make other people I know listen to them...
must be acquiring the taste the more i hear the more i like. usually not so forgiving with the goth sound but they standout.
Love this their singer's deep baritone voice.
Sounds nothing like HIM lol
sorry if I sounded mean, cl0ckm0rk.

and I guess the termite can from under the woodwork... *cough*Willo w * c o u g h *
these guys do NOT sound like HIM.
I've yet to hear a song I didn't like, so this has been definitively moved into my "things that are awesome" mental filing cabinet.
amadeus_anto n i n
haha i agree totally with kat.
it's too yummy for words
katzmyth
Kat says Yummy!!! I like very much!!
sblock16
Wow! I've only heard one song by them so far, but they are definitely going in the "yes" category! :D
plunkyplunk
H.I.M. suck heres the real deal
I don't think they sound anything like H.I.M.
... HIM rip-off? :/
not really.
Very interesting - I've only heard one track so far but that was excellent while also being rather unique. I don't think I've ever heard a metal group with a male vocalist actually SING in the lower registers before, they usually just use their 'low' voices for screaming, heh. Made for a refreshing contrast!
hmm... pretty cool.
I'm enjoying them a bit more than The 69 Eyes.
the dark, gloomy melodies are beautiful. just what I like about gothic rock and metal.
really diggin this at first listen. pretty chill compared to other bands like opeth crowbar and rapture.
After discovering Paradise Lost I wanted to hear more bands similar to them, and so far Lacrimas Profundere is my favorite. The richness and melancholic depth of the melodies keeps me enraptured.

This band is cool, they sorta remind me of a similar German rock group called ASP I actually thought it was them at first.
I really enjoy this band.
Much rolling of eyes. This band can just go ahead and do what it does, which is awesome, for the rest of MY life; I'll be happy. Good comment, Verbal.
really, willow here!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! W O W good job finding every band ive ever heard of keep up the good work (-_-)
metalizedead , if they're so terrible why do you have them bookmarked? LOL
