The Four-Men-Formation has its roots in Metal of the 80s and 90s.
In 10 years of existing, the bandwidth has grown, crossing over to 70s Prog.Rock, Folk and even Jazz.
Awesome covers of synthiemusic from J.M. Jarre, John Carpenter and others surprises the audience.
LACRIMA CHRISTI have found a kind of free-style beyond the well-known pigeonholes.

The lyrics vary the same: german, english, polish and even latin language.


In 1994 ex-members of IMMORTALIS and ABSZESS united, LACRIMA CHRISTI was born. At that time Karsten Goebel still played the second guitar, but left the band after production of the debut-album.

In spring 1995 the "crying christians" could publish their first demotape "RAEDER DES SCHICKSALS", that went down so well that it is absolutely sold out.
Two songs songs were "preserved" on the CD-compilationsamplers "DEW" (Nacht und Nebel Rec.) and "ONLY DEATH IS REAL VOL. I" (OTR Prod.).

In 1996 keyboarder Daniel Kuhlmey joined the band. He completed the current line-up as well as the music.

In august 1998 LACRIMA CHRISTI travelled to Italy, the same-named red wine´s home...
In Italy at the "AGGLUTINATION Open-Air-Festival" they played as the co-headliner for the band ATHENA.
"SPIEGEL", the debut album was produced in 1999.
A rough mix of the song "Hypocrite" was taken from that album for the well-known 2CD-Sampler "DEATH-O-PHOBIA 6" (Earth A.D.).
By now, "SPIEGEL" got good and very good reviews by Zines as ROCK HARD, ETERNITY, LEGACY, MOSHPIT and others.

In summer of the year 2000 the band combined new compositions to a draft. The second album "MASKENBALL" could be produced.
The music bears a resemblence to the predecessor but appears more compact.
The ripening of the musicians and their total product LACRIMA CHRISTI is recognizable.

Even the same year the band signed two further compilations by Raeudig Rec. and The Netherworld.

In the following year, several collections like "Pure Hate" and "Essence Of Darkness" and many distributions throughout the WorldWideWeb spread the gift of LACRIMA CHRISTI all over the world...

In dec. 2004 Rainer Steffen Hain joins the band as a new drummer.
Of course, this means again a transmutation for the whole music...
- Time to release a new demo!...
