The deluxe edition of the upcoming Lacrimosa album "Hoffnung" comes in a digipack and contains a 28-page booklet as well the previously unreleased DVD "Live in Mexico City - The Movie". LACRIMOSA don't celebrate their 25th anniversary with a regular best-of CD, but with a brand-new studio album, which the band has been working on since January 2015 together with a 60 person orchestra.
Lacrimosa is a gothic duo led by German Tilo Wolff, the main composer, and Finn Anne Nurmi. They are currently based in Switzerland, but originally from Germany. Originally counted among the bands of the Neue Deutsche Todeskunst genre, Lacrimosa have developed their style more towards powerful metal, but Gothic elements still remain…
The all new Studio-Album (the first since 2012’s ‘Revolution’) for the 25th Anniversary! 10 tracks, 60 minutes.After celebrating their anniversary in front of over 3,000 people in September, where the band already played two songs from the new album.The most ambitious work of the creator of Gothic Metal and co-founder of the Symphonic Metal genre was recorded with an Orchestra of more than 60 musicians during the period of an entire year. To achieve this – unlike other bands – Tilo Wolff (singer and composer of LACRIMOSA) did not rely on an external arranger for Orchestras but draws responsible for the entire scores for the orchestra recordings himself.And the result speaks for itself: Never before LACRIMOSA inflamed such a storm of brutal guitar riffs, driving drums and bombastic kettle drums in perfect harmony with powerful trombones and heartbreaking strings. So it’s not a surprise that one of the musicians said during the recordings: "This is like Pirates of the Caribbean goes Metal"!

After the band's 20th anniversary, which included a whirlwind tour through Europe, Latin America and Asia, Lacrimosa's 11th studio album marks a new era and a grand step forward for the band. In addition to tasteful use of choirs and orchestra, 'Revolution' also features the talents of Mille Petrozza (Kreator) and drummer Stefan Schwarmann (Accept)!
