4 stars One of the best symphonic gothic metal albums ever

With Inferno, Lacrimosa reches a new level in their music, adding more symphonic arrangements on their goth-metal music then on previouses albums and featuring a new member - Anne Nurmi who does female vocals and keyboards, and remains a constant and important member in Lacrimosa since . To me this is the best Lacrimosa album, with some of the best pieces i ever heard from a band from this genre, Kabinett der Sinne and Schakal. This two tracks are absolutely mindblowing, stunning from capo al fine. Very heavy, lenghty, both are over 10 minutes each, creating an atmosphere hard to beat by many bands. Dark, emotional, symphonic, with metal elements, all is here, and on the highest level. The rest of the tracks are ok specially the last one Der Kelch des Lebens is the best after two mentioned above. So if don't have this Lacrimosa, try it you will not be deseppointed, for sure. 4 stars without hesitation, Lacrimosa's music is very strong, dark, doomy and for sure pleases both categories of listners, the metal ones, and the symphonic one in the same time. Great album. And by the way, the front covers, art works on each album is made only in black and white to give to the viewer and to the lister exactly what is going one on the albums.

4 stars 'Inferno' was a great surprise for Lacrimosa fans, and for myself, as well. It introduced many more elements into Lacrimosa's music. First, there's a new band member. Anne Nurmi joined Tilo Wolff and does female vocals and keyboards. Second, theres an orchestra. Thirdly, there's now an actual ... (read more)

4 stars Without being a masterpiece of progressive music, this album is one of the best in symphonic gothic metal. One of the best (if not the best) recordings of Tilo, you´ll enjoy it, if you survive the sorrow. Very sad and deep, but really fantastic music! ... (read more)
