  • Description

    With “Schakal” LACRIMOSA became pioneers of Gothic Metal and the song itself became a groundbreaking model for Symphonic, Dark Metal.

    In the booklet of this EP we read some of Tilo Wolff's memories about thecreation of “Schakal”:
    «In 1994, I was determined to combine the emotional depth of the heart of Lacrimosa, the lyrics, with the impact and the wideness of an orchestra with the immediate harshness of Metal. (…) I remember the words of a music manager, saying: 'The song is too hard for Gothic fans and too dark for the Metalheads! Nobody will understand that!’ And he was initially right. The magazines wrote bad about “Schakal” and no DJ played the song. It was the year 1994 – Gothic-Metal was not invented yet!”

    For the 30th anniversary, "Schakal 1994 - 2024" is now being released, a collection of all recordings – from the first demo to a previously unreleased, completely re-recorded version that exploits the full potential of this epic work in over eight minutes – as well as all professional Live recordings made from concerts around the world from
    1997 to the present.
