Lacrimosa

Lacrimosa is a German Gothic rock band led by Tilo Wolff[?] and Anne Nurmi[?]. Their unique musical style mixes heavy metal sounds along with violin, trumpet and more classical instruments, with brilliant compositions from Wolff.

Wolff has a deep, strong voice; many people thinks that his voice and the German language give the perfect sound for Gothic music. Anne balances it with a crystal-clear, pure voice and her skills on the keyboard.

Timeline

  • 1988 - 1990: Tilo Wolff and Cristian Dorch record two albums that reach very low sales. They begin to use the name "Lacrimosa".
  • 1991: Tilo Wolff founded a new record company called Hall of Sermon, just to edit his own records.
  • 1994: Anne Nurmi joins the band. Tilo's idea was that she will only play keyboard, but with the time she will be a fundamental part of the band.
  • 1998: Lacrimosa's first concert in Mexico. They return to Mexico almost every year since then, building a great relationship with their fans in that country.
  • 1999: The consolidation, with the recording of Elodia, with the Symphonic Orchestra of London.
  • 2001: Fassade brings a softer, purer sound to scene.

There are three important periods: an experimental one, a more metal, heavy period from 1995 followed by a more musical, cleaner period from 1999 to the present.
