LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE "Fall, I Will Follow"

I've heard of some changes occurred in the line up as if the drum player left or something...well, it is true with one single remark: this happened right after this album was released. What could I tell you about LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE and you didn't know already? This is the fifth album and I don't think I may say the most promising one. The former one seems to be more influential due to a noteworthy perspicuity. The new compositions maintain the same melancholic aura; Gothic often takes forms of Rock though the depressive calmness continues to mark the entire musical concept. I don't hide myself; indeed, I am fond of this album firstly because of the piano's mystical atmosphere and secondly because of Cristopher Schmid's delightful clear voice. This is an album exceeding the Dark Metal note, in MY DYING BRIDE style, entering the commercial area, with real tendencies towards a pessimistic gloomy Rock, still listenable, bursting of beautiful Doom Death elements.
I wouldn't put my hand in fire for the band's original background but I am not blind and nor deaf not to admit that, album after album, they actually succeeded in charting a distinctive style with a particular identifying sound. Well, maybe some Alternative/Grunge hues, besides noisy tunes too fast and rhythmic, do wrong to the Metal atmosphere of this material...like what recently happened to ANATHEMA or THINE...Otherwise...all tends to reach a superlative status.
