Label: Another Side Records – ASR01-57
Released: 06 June 2013
Style: Gothic/doom/black metal
The debut full-length album of Moscow gothic doom black metal project was titled Castus Lacrima. The music of this mysterious and magical formation offers us to feel the contrast between the beauty and the ugliness, between joyful sadness and truly desolation. You can compare it with Estatic Fear, Autumn Rain Melancholy, but you won’t find one and the same sound or guitar cliché. If you know, what emptiness and despair really means, it’ll tell you, who hides inside of you. Walk through the cold alleys of solitude, feel the wet leaf fall of empty hopes and sleepless nights, open the door into the abyss of long nightmares and endless His Majesty Dusk’s halls. This album is recommended for fans of Draconian, Tristania, The Foreshadowing, Lacrimas Profundere, Virgin Black, Moonspell, Saturnus, Lacrimosa, Theatres Des Vampires.
