Terrorizer got the scoop on this yesterday, but I reckon a day’s grace if fair to let them get the first hits before spreading the news.
A lot of bands have failed in the tricky undertaking to combine melancholy and heaviness, but not Lacrimas Profundere, who pull it off on Antiadore without breaking a sweat.
The band stayed true to their sombre roots on this album, but has elevated the characteristic sound to new heights. Thus, even exceeding their previous masterworks such as The Grandiose Nowhere or Songs For The Last View. Antiadore is heavy, melancholic, and touches upon the hidden feelings in the darkest corners of the soul. Ballads like “Still In Need” or “Head Held High” meet heavy breakers like “Abandon” or the pounding “What I’m Not”.
The band revolving around Oliver Schmid Nikolas Schmid presents itself with a newfound energy and offer their most diverse and mature album.
Antiadore is out now via Napalm Records.
