LACRIMOSA - Past News (2002 - 2006)

  In December 2006

It's no secret anymore, that time is fleeting faster and faster. Much more important it is though, that one sharpens his senses even more in this beautiful time of the year and sences the beauty of the moment beyond all measure!

In this sence we wish you a special Christmas season and a good start into the year 2007!

  In October 2006

We want to thank you for welcoming us so warm-hearted on our China-Tour! We've experienced wonderful and unforgetable moments with you!!

And with these concerts in Asia our "Lichtgestalt-Tour", which brought us during fourtyone concerts into thirtysix cities, in fourteen countries, on four continents also comes to an end. But this also means, and this is the bad news, that the Lacrimosa-movie, we've announced for this year, will be released not before 2007.

But the good news is, that we then can present to you a movie containing high quality pictures from the road, the backstages and the concerts in China, Germany, Poland, Russia and Mexico! More about this comes soon.

Until then we great and thank everyone from the audience from each countries we've been visiting during our "Lichtgestalt-Tour" from the bottum of our hearts!!

LacrimosaAfter it had to be read on for some time, that on October, 6th a new SNAKESKIN album will be released, one or the other asked me: why SNAKESKIN, why not LACRIMOSA?

A couple of words about this: I started with LACRIMOSA in order to give my poetry and all therefrom arising emotions and feelings another dimension. This is the center and the main idea of LACRIMOSA, that every composition is based on a poetry, a lyric, the written word (also the instrumental "Lacrima Mosa" which is based on these on LACRIMOSA itself focused words). This concept, this proceeding was exactly the right thing at that time and still is the right thing to this day!

SnakeskinAnd so that nothing will change this in future and that the origin of LACRIMOSA won't become uprooted, I had to create a new frame for compositions which aren't the result of the inspiration matured from the word but tell a story on their own.

So SNAKESKIN was born. This second skin represents another surface now, like SNAKESKIN's musical surface – the arrangement and production – is different from LACRIMOSA's. But underneath this skin, there is the same heart beating.

The aim is the same in both, only the ways are different. And if, besides unusual features, such as the cooperation with the great opera singer KERSTIN DOELLE, one might say about the new album of SNAKESKIN, that it sounds and feels like an album of LACRIMOSA, I can't deny it, because it was taken from the same heart, the same soul, out of the same feelings, only with the SNAKESKIN-covered hands.

Lacrimosa-ForumLACRIMOSA has increased!

Next to our official side that of course will last furthermore, we have created a forum for you, in which everyone who is connected to LACRIMOSA in one or the other way can meet, exchange and inspire mutually himself.

This new home consists of four main houses:

    here you find tips and tricks all around the forum and Ritchie, our webmaster, welcomes you as the head of the household;
    this building consists of three rooms in which you learn the current News about and around LACRIMOSA directly from us and moreover you can exchange yourself about everything that concerns LACRIMOSA;
    here you find different rooms for dwelling and for introducing yourself to each other and in which your hosts Mona and Amira will take good care of you, but only if you come announced because this area is only for registered visitors;
    the new guestbook which will replace the previous one as of now and in which you can let off steam – as had – after desire and mood.
Now, in the interest of all visitors we would like to point out that outside the guestbook merely the two languages English and German should be spoken since a mutual exchange is no longer possible if everybody speaks in his own mother tongue. Thus we cordially invite you into our new home and wish you a lovely stay and respectful dealing with each other!!

LacrimosaLACRIMOSA on Wave Gotik Treffen 2006

Once again a couple of words about our concert on the WGT on June 2nd, 2006: obviously there was some, by communication faults caused misunderstandings about our playing time on this festival. However, the good news is now, that the organizers have scheduled LACRIMOSA for an extended playing time of 90 min. and moreover reserved an optimal position for our concert so that nothing more stands against a great concert-evening!

Now, after many years we are looking forward to perform once more on the WGT and we wish you a good journey to Leipzig and beautiful days on the festival!

Here and there is some annoyance over the fact, that the music released on Hall Of Sermon is now also available online. Now, this isn't a belittling of the sound-carrier – if this would be so, we would harm ourselves because Hall Of Sermon is a sound-carrier manufacturer!

No, this is rather a reaction to the many requests from out of your rows, at which the poor quality of available downloads on the Internet found fault. Of course the sound-carrier is and remains the central medium of our art in its conceptional and musical compilation and with its booklet, the printed lyrics, the photos and – particularly for Lacrimosa albums – indispensable cover paintings!

"Lichtgestalten" EP

That nothing has changed to this will show on December 2nd the "Lichtgestalten EP" and the DVD "Musikkurzfilme" which both will come in high-quality Digipak and each with a 12-sided booklet and with the same love of the detail like all our previous releases!
And on this occasion we would like to introduce these two releases to you in few words:

DVD "Musikkurzfilme""Lichtgestalten EP" is the epilogue to the current album "Lichtgestalt" and lights during six titles particularly those shadows which accompany the light of a moving creature. Besides the title "Unerkannt", a continuation of "Nachtschatten" and that until now most aggresiv Lacrimosa title "Road To Pain", the EP among others also features a sarcastic SNAKESKIN-Remix of "Lichtgestalt" and a version of "Siehst Du mich im Licht?" recorded together with ATROCITY.

And who is surprised at the cover, shall be reminded, that only the albums of Lacrimosa feature painted covers, while we cultivate the traditions with our singles and mini-albums – like this one – to continue and complete the album painting with real pictures and collagen.

The DVD "Musikkurzfilme" units all of the by Lacrimosas music inspired filmlets and music clips which we have shot until now. Starting with our first music video "Satura" from 1993, over clips like for example "Copycat" and "Stolzes Herz", up to the previous unreleased filmets for "Alleine zu zweit", "Der Morgen danach", "Durch Nacht und Flut" and of course the freshly shot "Lichtgestalt", the – as we think – highlight of this DVD! All clips are swirled with poetic animations and the DVD offers usual stereo and a new mixed 5.1 surround sound. Finally one can throw a look behind the scenes and finds a view into Lacrimosas future in the bonus material!

All anniversary actions of this particular year 2005 are completed then, if only one last well-wisher wouldn't start playing his violin now...

Now, we wish you beautiful fall days!

"Lichtgestalt"Soon it's gonna be the evening of May 2nd, that we are awaiting passionately, because, as you might know, on the evening of the release-day of a new Lacimosa album, we always have that kind of ritual, where we listen to the new album together, connecting ourselves with everyone, who, during that particular night as well is listening to our new music. And we are trying to imagine what kind of emotions and feelings you, our audience, might have while listening to the new Lacrimosa album! An incredible moment!

We are very thankful to you for such an upcomming evening! And – by the way – this night, we keep a special eye on our guestbook!

And now to our audience in Argentina, Brazil, Chile & Mexico:
Our anniversary-tour will continue later this year and of course: we won't forget you!!

And we have news for our Russian audience:
On Friday, 10th of June we will come to play our very first concert in Moscow!!

There are only a few weeks left until May 2nd, when "Lichtgestalt" (luminous figure), our new and nineth studioalbum will be released! The aware Lacrimosa-listener might have several associations by reading this title, which are thoroughly wanted, as this album "Lichtgestalt" takes to the point, what some previous lyrics and compositions indicated and prepared.

Until then we wish you all the best!

Tilo WolffFrom the buttom of my heart I want to thank everyone who believed in me and in SNAKESKIN and with that supported this new side-project, nevertheless the music is very dark and sometimes unpleasant!! This means very much to me as you express therewith how much my music and its contents mean to you!!

And for those who still have prejudice against SNAKESKIN I hope that you one day will learn that emotional art does not exist in limitations!

I wish you all a beautiful and intensive autumn
and for those who live on the other side of the planet
I wish you a beautiful and not too hot summer!

  In October 2004

SnakeskinAfter the speculations condense and the rumours are becoming preeding-places for cranky fantasy-stories, I want to end the presumptions and notify what I originally wanted to announce earliest in several weeks: Yes, SNAKESKIN is my solo-project!

More information about SNAKESKIN you can find on, but already now I want to mention and anticipate new possible rumours, that SNAKESKIN is another musical and emotional playground for me, but that it won't detach LACRIMOSA! LACRIMOSA is and always will be my band and nothing is going to change that!

Without having the need to sacrifice LACRIMOSA for it, the gentle listener therefore receives another facet, and I wish lots of pleasure with it!

With love,
Tilo Wolff

LacrimosaFrom the bottom of our hearts we want to thank every single person, who gifted us with their deep and strong love during our stay and during our concerts in Santiago de Chile, São Paulo, Mexico City and on the M'Era Luna Festival in Germany!
We thank everyone who helped making these days in your countries unforgettable! You are an amazing audience, and that is why we will return!! With other words: next year Lacrimosa will go on world-tour! Also we want to thank everyone signing our guestbook with words of love and pure emotions! It feels good to read them!

By the way we need to mention, that because of several reasons, we from Lacrimosa don't write into our own guestbook. Therefore you should know, that everything in the guestbook that is signed with Anne Nurmi or Tilo Wolff, is NOT written from us!

Now we wish you all the best
and fun by reading our personal impressions from this tour!

Good news for everyone who is still sorry about the closing of our online-shop:

On July the 1st 2003 the Hall Of Sermon-Shop will be re-opened!!
Next to a complete new design, the Hall Of Sermon-Shop will come up with these improvements that were missing so far and that were half a year ago the reason to close our shop: the re-opened shop will be based in the EU, exactly spoken in Germany, which makes the delivery terms much shorter and the delivery costs much cheeper!

You can visit our new shop from the first of July on by the links of the pages of and as well as directly by the following addresses:

We wish you a nice visit on the pages of our new Hall Of Sermon-Shop!

After "Echos" left our studios and made it's way into the world and obviously also into your hearts, which makes us very happy and thankful, we would herewith like to present you our new web layout based on "Echos".
We hope you will enjoy the visit!!

Meanwhile we guess everyone has heard that LACRIMOSA is not going to play any live gigs this year - it is simply that after three years permanent producing and touring we barely would have the needed energy for offering YOU the show you'd deserve and probably wouldn't be able to give what you expect from LACRIMOSA on stage.

Due to this - and this is the good news - we have more time to compose …

Meanwhile we send you our love,

LACRIMOSA " Echos " - released 27.01.2003

After the single song "Durch Nacht und Flut", which made one to expect something very new - maybe even more melodic future from LACRIMOSA, comes now an album, which is again prooving that any kind of expectations in advance are made to be topped, when we are talking about LACRIMOSA ...

Tilo & AnneDecember 2002

Like frequently metioned, LACRIMOSA is based on three columns, as they are 1st the lyrics, 2nd the music and 3rd the artwork! The latter is compounded by the cover, the packaging- and the booklet-design.

After eight cover paintings reflecting the lyrics and the music on a visual level, we want to present you on January, the 3rd 2003 at 10:00 p.m. on this page the heart of the artwork, the cover of our new album "Echos"!

Until then we wish you a wonderful Christmas and the very best for the year 2003!

01. Kyrie (12:42) - Overture

04. Apart (4:16) - Bittruf Part 1

07. Malina (4:48) - Bittruf Part 2
08. Die Schreie sind verstummt (12:42) - Requiem für drei Gamben und Klavier

With big interest we've been following you opinions about our single and the pros and cons about LACRIMOSA in general, that you've published in the HOS-guestbook. Accordingly we are very eager to read your impressions that our new album will set free in you!
Especially after this depate the contents of our new compositions will lead to several suprises! We'll be curious...!

Since there were many speculations about the announced "Special Edition", we want to now lift the curtain a bit:

On November, 18th in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and in Poland a "Special Edition" of our new single will be released, on which our new song "Durch Nacht und Flut" is to be heard, after ZEROMANCER took care of it!

Because of reasons, which here to explain would go beyond the scope, those two singles will be released as one EP on November, 11th in Mexico, Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic States and on November, 18th in the rest of the world!

With greetings from our heart!
Tilo Wolff & Anne Nurmi

September 2002

After the release of our new single "Durch Nacht und Flut" on November 11th, Hall Of Sermon follows up with a special edition of this particular single one week later on November 18th!
This special edition will come up with several surprises,
but that's all we want to tell about it so far!

These release dates are only related to the territories of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Poland! In the territories of Mexico, Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic States, both singles will be relaesed as one EP on November, 11th! In December 2002 this particular EP is going to be released throughout the rest of the world!

August 2002

On the 11th of November it finally is that far:
our new single "Durch Nacht und Flut" (Through night and flood) is coming out!

The new 4-track-single will build a bridge to a further chapter in the meanwhile thirteen years of the history of Lacrimosa! We are fortuned by your sentiment presence during the whole year, but we feld your closeness specially during these weeks and months in the studio, which we think drifts through our new single and therefore flows back to you again.
Specially we have been enjoying the gratulations, good wishes, thoughts and presents, which have reached us on our birthdays in July and August!
Thank you very much!!

With love,
Tilo Wolff & Anne Nurmi
