It's often the most difficult challenges that force a musician to grow artistically. For Lacrimas Profundere, one of the most innovative and successful German dark metal bands of our time, their latest studio album 'How To Shroud Yourself With Night' (scheduled for release on Steamhammer/SPV on 26 August 2022) was primarily about the implicit burden imposed by their 2019 hit record 'Bleeding The Stars', whose success had indirectly raised huge expectations.Like 'Bleeding The Stars', 'How To Shroud Yourself With Night' was produced by Kristian 'Kohle' Kohlmannslehner at his Kohlekeller Studios in Seeheim and mastered by Tom Porcell at the Limetree Studios. The atmospheric, deep black cover artwork was designed by Indonesian artist Bahrull Marta and underlines the songs' dense atmosphere and great depth focus that supports the actual theme of the album: the desire to simply disappear, to be invisible and not have to deal with yourself and the outside world any more. Schmid: Each song on this album deals with that theme. It's about shadows, about darkness and mystical objects which combine the unique power of "nothingness"." In order to appreciate all the details of the production, you absolutely have to listen to the album on headphones and you'll discover new hidden details every time you listen to it. "'How To Shroud Yourself With Night' sees us throw our oppressive veil of melancholy into the dark night and reveal the beauty that's inherent in bleak despondency. We accompany the listener into the gloom with doomy riffs and mournful melodic guitar and keyboard passages rich in atmosphere!" Well, there's not much to add to this precise assessment!
