Biography

Switzerland (1990 – present)

Lacrimosa is a duo led by German-born Tilo Wolff, the main composer, and Finnish Anne Nurmi, currently based in Switzerland and founded in 1990. Lacrimosa was at the beginning a solo project of Tilo Wolff and his musical genre originally was (New German Death Art). Between Satura and Inferno, when Anne Nurmi (ex-Two Witches) joined a group, their music style has shifted much more towards /(neo) with influences. Their musical style mixes heavy metal and gothic rock sounds along with violin, trumpet and more classical instruments, although their musical development throughout the years has also led to changes in instrumentation. Lacrimosa’s lyrics are written almost exclusively in German, although since the 1995 album Inferno every album has featured one or two songs in English, generally written by Anne Nurmi. Finnish has also appeared in brief spoken intros to two songs (Schakal on Inferno and The Turning Point on Elodia) and on a bonus track in a limited edition release of Fassade. Their lyrics are mainly about loneliness, sadness, darkness, despair and love.
All albums were released through Wolff’s own label Hall Of Sermon.

Their official site is www.lacrimosa.ch.

    Straszliwie to nudne. Brzmi, jakby Michał Wiśniewski próbował grać melodyjny rock gotycki w towarzystwie orkiestry symfonicznej. Nie powiem nic odkrywczego, ale kiedy zespół rockowy zabiera się za podniosłe orkiestracje praktycznie zawsze wychodzi z tego chłam. Katastrofa. Nie mieści mi się w głowie jak muzycznie kumaci ludzie mogą się tym zachwycać.

    HaHaHaYoureDead, ну, слава Аллаху, хоть раннюю признал Лакримозушку. Без твоего признания я и слушать их не смел. Может, Фасад и Лихтгештальт признаешь? А то уж очень хочется послушать.

    I've got no adequate words to describe how Elodia is such an incredible album. It's the kind of musical achievement most symphonic/gothic bands strive for.

    Elodia ♥ [10] Yes, Elodia is the best. But also Inferno, Echos, Einsamkeit and Lichtgestalt are so good!

    Живая легенда готической сцены. Ранние альбомы особенно шикарны, а Elodia так вообще - музыкальное полотно, шедевр.

    при всей своей нелюбви к готик-металлу, эту группу я признаю. их альбомы конца 90-х были очень круты
