Early Preview: Kalafina’s 4th single release includes the new outro theme to TV anime ‘Kuroshitsuji’.
I love Lacrimosa the first time I heard the song when it premiered as the second outro theme for Kuroshitsuji. I thought it was a very fitting song that suited the 2nd half of the Gothic themed series. It’s all dark and atmospheric and that’s just from hearing the TV-sized version. The full song is even more impressive. You can feel the depth of the song, melody and music that creates a classical sort of ambiance with the strings and the choir-like vocals in the chorus. It’s a beautiful ethereal effect. The b-side track is titled ‘Gloria’. It’s a piano driven ballad with a sad melody and full of melancholy. I really love the vocal pairings here. I highly recommended this single be given a listen, even if you don’t watch Kuroshitsuji.
