Lacrimas Profundere / Bio

24 Countries! more than 100,000 albums sold! and countless headliner tours!
lets have a look over 20 years of Goth Metal.

Lacrimas have played throughout Europe, with (amongst others,) some of the greatest names of the Gothic scene, Paradise lost, The 69 Eyes, Lacuna Coil, and Apocalyptica, to mention but a few. They have also shared the stage with such greats as "Type O Negative", "OZZY" and "Marilyn Manson" on some of the biggest European festivals like MERA LUNA, SUMMERBREEZE, ROCK HARZ, WACKEN, WGT, ARTmania and the Szignet to an enthralled Audience.

With their exceptional mixture of melancholy and gothic, paired with the rock and metal influences of the individual members, Lacrimas Profundere managed with "AVE END" to create a milestone in the harder Goth-Rock genre, and with the Album "FILTHY NOTES FOR FROZEN HEARTS" produced by von John Fryer - (HIM, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Paradise Lost, etc,) they managed to establish themselves firmly in the scene.
With this they were able to find themselves in the German charts and were played Worldwide on International rock and indie radiostations,
Also with the support of the US- Jackass star BAM MAGERA, who played the complete album during his MTV show "Bams unholy Union" to a worldwide audience, another rung was attained on the ladder of success that should not be overlooked.

As firmly established Goth-Greats, and with the album "SONGS FOR THE LAST VIEW" featuring the charismatic voice of new singer ROB VITACCA ,
the band then continued to polish their trademark style. This album also developed into a chart success and after 75 concerts in 2008 alone it went further in 2009 to the bands first performances in Russia, Belgium and England amongst other festival appearances, and a month long European tour was also completed.
Whilst the German National Tv Station ZDF graced the Monday thriller "NACHTSCHICHT UND DAS TOTE MÄDCHEN" with the song "And gods ocean"
the Musicians broke out with their heavy riff and rock orientated album "THE GRANDIOSE NOWHERE" to back up their first World Tour.
Headlining in South America, Holland, Spain and Greece, an appearance in Wacken, and the biggest adventure uptil now, their First Tour through China, they laid the foundations to being the inventors of Rock n Sad.
The new album entiteled "ANTIADORE" (release date 24.05.2013), featuring guest composer Ricky Warwick, and recorded in the WELTRAUM STUDIOS in Munich with CORNI BARTELS (END OF GREEN).
Pre-production took place in finland with Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Sentenced, The 69 Eyes) and the mastering took place in the "ANTFARM STUDIOS" in Denmark with Tue Madsen (Monnspell, Heaven Shall Burn, The Haunted).
The Rock n Sad Crew are Back with a vengence!! and one can see just by the names involved that its going to be anything but a shallow Gothic offering, here the metal reigns together with the individual, and for Lacrimas profundere, typical haunting melodies.
For the upcoming Album release there is going to be a small tour in specially selected venues including lots of specials, and naturally all the new songs which will be presented for the first time live on stage. and for those that turn up at a concert with the new album, they will recieve a special 10% discount on all merchandising articles!
can´t get fairer than that!!
