BAND LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE
ALBUM How To Shroud Yourself With Night
LABEL Steamhammer / SPV
OUT Aug 26th, 2022
OUR RATING 75/100
Lacrimas Profundere, one of the most innovative #German #dark #metal bands of our time, are out with their latest studio album ‘How To Shroud Yourself With Night’, released on Steamhammer/SPV on 26 August 2022.
A great step ahead with this platter; an assessment immediately confirmed from tracks like the groove monster ‘Unseen’ or ‘The Curtain Of White Silence’, with its unique blend of dark metal, melodic hardcore and post rock, from ‘Shroud Of Night’ to the opener ‘Wall Of Gloom’, doom influenced.
To remark the excellent first single ‘A Cloak Woven Of Stars’, the heir of their 2019 hit ‘Father Of Fate’.
The atmospheric, deep black cover artwork was designed by Indonesian artist Bahrull Marta and underlines the songs’ dense atmosphere and great depth of focus that supports the actual theme of the album: the desire to simply disappear, to be invisible and not have to deal with yourself and the outside world any more.
WELCOME BACK LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE!!
