“Castus Lacrima”
The band name screams goth metal a long way. But I could be wrong and this could end up being the long lost cousin to My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost. I get that potential just from the name alone. Whatever this turns out to be I just hope that in the end I won’t feel cheated out of my time. This is heavy like a Monday morning. Don’t know how goth it is, even though there is that aura about the music but most of all it is slow to the point of dragging its feet along. Listening to this is like being in a suspended state of mind. You see the world around you moving in slow motion while your brain races on in 200mph. And at the same time it is beautiful in a way that hurts. This is the melancholic kind of metal that gets my emotions flowing. Anders Ekdahl
