Lacrimas Profundere means “To shed tears” in Latin.  You couldn’t find a more perfect name for a gothic rock band than that.  While the band has been around since the mid-’90s, it seems that they’re still finding and making new fans around the world.  Their latest release “Bleeding Stars” is a prime example of why they are still continuing to grow their fanbase.  If you love bands like Sisters Of Mercy, HIM, and Type O Negative, you’re going to want to check this album out.  Hell, at times, I even hear a touch of Stiv Bators (Dead Boys, Lords Of The New Church) in the vocals.  Transitioning between atmospheric, ethereal soundscapes to harsher, darker moments keeps the album fresh sounding, as well as providing an overall cohesive album feeling from start to finish.  The band takes some chances branches out at times, which really helps this album excel beyond most goth rock albums.  They have more than enough variety in the mix to keep it all interesting.  Often times, you know exactly what you’re going to get with a band that labels themselves “Goth”, but the inventiveness here breaks them away from the pack of sound-alike bands, who essentially crank out the same album over and over. Check this album out for a nice slice of beautiful darkness that resonates with the feelings that most of us keep hidden.  A great album by a band that’s long overdue to be recognized for their greatness.
