Lacrimas Profundere bring their self-professed “rock ‘n sad” music out again on the 11-track AVE END, a melancholic sojourn whose piano-led pain and Goth rock dynamics put the band in prime position along side Lacuna Coil and Paradise Lost as masters of the mopey metal. Heavy and brooding throughout the entire album, a feeling of desperation is especially apparent in the low registered vocals, the determining factor that ties everything together on this disc. Well textured yet simplistic, tracks like the driving synth rock of “Amber Girl” and the heavy guitar churn of “Evade” showcase two major pieces to this crew that succinctly melds aggression and sorrow.
