Locus Titanis Funus
Castrus Lacrima
December 2014
Released: 2013, Another Side Records
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: UK Team

For those of you who like a bit of misery in their music, you are in for a treat. CASTRUS LACRIMA is the debut album by Russian purveyors of gloom Locus Titanic Funus, and it is superb.

It begins with the tear stained mourning of "Locus Titanic Funus", a heart wrenching swathe of utter, abject despondency. It is followed by the equally morose "Морфий", and the warped woe of "Фея". There is no let up the all consuming sense of doom as the album proceeds with "Зеркало", before melting in to the albums standout track "Covered With Sorrow", an epic, majestic wrist-slasher! The album closes in fine style with "The Last Separation Time", an exercise in wistful dynamics.

Although CASTRUS LACRIMA can be a heavy going, even draining experience it is ultimately a very rewarding one.
