- Melancholic Symphonic Progressive Music

Elodia, LACRIMOSA'S sixth album is a Rock Opera, dedicated to a demigoddess inspired by Greek mythology, who has been involved in both of their previous albums, Inferno and Stille from the years 1995 & 1997. The mistress of love and death, herein tells the tale of a love that is doomed, leading to a question, if "love in excess can become a force that ultimately has the power to destroy itself, whether too much love will kill..."

The whole album, Elodia, is sung in German, except for one song, sung by Anne Nurmi. Tilo has a somewhat unusual voice and a very marked German accent, many people find Tilo's voice unsuitable, I find it an interesting fit for this kind of music. Lacrimosa uses guest musicians for their recording sessions and on the more recent albums have utilized the symphonic orchestras as well as choirs. On Elodia they used the The London Symphony Orchestra and the Rosenberg Ensemble and Westsachsische Symphonic Orchestra. Each succeeding album seems to get more complicated, lush and at times Bombastic

Lacrimosa is not for everyone. It's somewhat of an acquired taste, not particularly accessible. As mentioned, Wolff's voice is unusual, they sing in German and the music is not always beautiful, as say Therion. It is, however, extremely catchy, loaded with hooks, haunting and generally captivating, plus the music is somewhat varied

The songs of Elodia actually break up into three ACTs. Here is a breakdown of the ACTs.





Rather unusual but extremely satisfying Neo Classical Melancholy Symphonic music. Elodia contains Symphonic Orchestras, Choirs and all the elements of powerful music.

- one of the best

I personally consider this the zenith of Lacrimosa's carrier so far. They are my favorite band and this is my favorite album.

The music of Lacrimosa in general is a unique mixture of classical orchestral/chamber instrumentation and somewhat unusual gothic metal. I say it's unusual because it's not about horror or misanthropy and it's not grotesque - at least not the way other gothic bands are. Lacrimosa's "gothic darkness" consists of the deep sadness of the human soul, that's expressed in the music.

Elodia is "eine Rockoper in drei Akten" - a rock opera in three acts. It's a strange love story. As written on their homepage, "tells the tale of a love that is doomed to fail, culminating in the question of whether love in excess can become a force that ultimately has the power to destroy itself, whether too much love will kill..." The lyrics are excellent, the music as well; dramatic, lyric and 'heavy' at the same time.

If you usually like not-so-heavy metal music, you'll love this CD, wether you understand the text or not.

- Super!!!

The album is really incredible. Goth metal with classical music are mixed absolutely perfectly. All lyrics but one song are in German, but it's just great. Tilos singing is very emotiional and just listening to the music you can understand what is going. Tilo also has very unusuall quality in his voice. The orchestra sounds really good and it blends ith guitars flawlesly, they do not get in each others way. Buy it!!! (...)

- If this doesn't make you feel good, check your pulse.

The blending of classical and metal musics is superb. Tilo and Anne's vocals bring forth a myriad of overwhelming emotions. This is a must buy!!

- Fantastic !

These two really surprised me when I bought this cd. I speak and understand German although they are swiss-german but it's all the same anyway. The lyrics are fantastic and follows the sequel of a coupple that it's love is impossible...... The sadness, the real suffering is shown in this recording. It is very emotive and full of gothic/melodic hard rock mixture. It is an album for any kind of taste. Make a shot and u'll see I was right. It's worth all the money.
