For the uninitiated, Lacrimas Profundere means, “to shed tears” in Latin, which pretty much sums up where the band are coming from. The four-piece deal in mostly uptempo gothrockers with the odd mellow crooner thrown in.
Antiadore is their tenth album, and there are few surprises in store. Song themes include sorrow, love – unrequited of course – and the usual dark heartache type fare bands with plenty of eyeliner. HIM & The 69 Eyes are the most obvious references here. They know what they wanted to do, and do it well, and despite a chronic lack of originality it’s still a listenable record- a solid yet unspectacular goth album.
