"Lágrimas" - this is the first full-length album of a project from Argentina after EP "Nocturnálgica". The full album contains six new tracks, all 4 track from EP in a slightly modified version and the acoustic version of one song. On this album you will hear gothic music of highest class - leading varied female vocals that range from gentle whispers to opera singing in combination with male voices as clean and extreme, choirs, wonderful orchestral arrangements, cold sound of the keys, the combination as softer acoustic musical canvases, characteristic for neoclassical, medieval music and neofolk with more heavy guitars, mostly mid-tempo sometimes slightly faster than mid-tempo, characteristic for gothic rock and metal with some elements of gothic doom. Beautiful lyrics in Spanish language not devoid of the influence of gothic and fantastic literature tells us about the classic struggle between good and evil, philosophy and the vicissitudes of the human being, the spiritual suffering and self-discovery. This album leaves great listening experience and strong feelings which is difficult to understand because of its solemn atmosphere contains is both dark and light faces. If you like high-quality and interesting music and listen and love Theatre of Tragedy origins, Lacrimosa, Aeternitas, Tristitia, Avrigus, Sopor Aeternus - you should definitely get acquainted with this work! Also don't forget please - see the new video from project for the song "Nocturnálgica"! The release of the album "Lágrimas" on CD it is expected in the future!

New release: Lauxnos - "The Last Pier" (2015, CD)
post rock / post metal / atmospheric post black, Russia

"The culmination of life...the end is not easy but this is just the beginning of life..."

"The Last Pier" it's a conceptual continuation of the previous album "My Dead Ocean" which tells about how the main character of the story, tired of the hypocrisy and the frailty of life, left the human realm and went to meet the horizon, towards to destiny that awaits him amid the waters of the boundless ocean, towards to mystery that hidden from man.

The lyrical component of the album is endowed with philosophical meaning and worthy of a separate literary works, texts written and performed on Russian language by two voices - pure and extreme. Stylistically the album was made at the intersection of post rock and post metal with elements of post black. Exceedingly handsome and airy instrumental compositions and fragments alternate with more rigid and disturbing music material but not a bit less touching, interesting and memorable. The atmosphere that creates the album - cold and lovely, light and heavy at the same time, the voltage builds up, then goes down, what remains is the uncertainty depressing and exciting waiting very plausible and far from the lightest end, however through the development of the album, on the other hand, passes light theme about extreme hope that helping to overcome any adversity!
