Deriving it's name from the Latin, LACERO means to rip or tear to pieces.
Since 2005 LACERO has been developing an idea that would invoke their true nature and allow them sovereignty to find solace in their art. Often described as "mesmerizing"and "beautiful" while some would suggest "raw" and "dramatic"
The group pulls together many different views and experiences that create a pure, unadulterated sonic landscape. With melodic overtones and a driving foundation, the music is meant to bare all.
