Elodia (20th anniversary deluxe edition-2CD)Originally from Germany but now based in Switzerland, LACRIMOSA is a duo led by German Tilo Wolff (the main composer) and Finn Anne Nurmi. Lacrimosa"s musical genre originally was darkwave or rather downright gothic. Since 1993, though, their style has shifted much more towards gothic metal, which has been mixed in to their typical darkwave sound. Their current musical style mixes Gothic rock and heavy metal along with violin, trumpet and more classical instruments, although their musical development throughout the years has also led to changes in instrumentation. Lacrimosa"s lyrics are written almost exclusively in German, although since the 1995 album "Inferno" every album has featured one or two songs in English, generally written by Anne Nurmi. Finnish has also appeared in the spoken intro to two songs ("Schakal" on "Inferno" and "The Turning Point" on "Elodia") and on a bonus track in a limited edition release of "Fassade" called "Vankina". Their lyrics are mainly about loneliness, sadness, darkness, despair and love. The 20th anniversary edition of the album "Elodia" features 6 bonus tracks (4 taken from the 1989 EP "Alleine Zu Zweit" and 2 live tracks) and is presented in mini LP format.
