Some components are still in production, so these pictures here are still a bit rudimentary, but after half a year of work the box finally becomes reality!
Here is the link to the shop and there you will also find the track list of the third CD “Versions” and a list of all contents, because I had not mentioned one little thing for the younger ones…
Viele Eurer Nachrichten habe ich gelesen – vielen Dank dafür! – aber mit Euren Vermutungen, was sich in der Box befinden wird, liegt Ihr falsch. 😄
Aber hier kommt nun einmal die erwähnte Kleinigkeit, von der ich geschrieben hatte: Vielleicht habt Ihr während des Streaming Konzertes das Lacrimosa Logo in Chrom auf meiner Gitarre bemerkt?! Dies ist ein Chrom-Aufkleber, der als kleinstes Teil in der Box zu finden sein wird, neben einigem Anderen, von dem ich Euch hier nach und nach schreiben werde.
At our 25th anniversary we played two concerts in Oberhausen and in Dresden that we recorded back then. And what better time could be there, in times without concerts with audiences, than to publish an anniversary concert with an audience for an anniversary?! And I can tell you, while mixing the album, it was so wunderful to hear your applause. Thank you again for that!
And this is the tracklist of the CD:
LACRIMOSA – LIVE 2015
01. SEELE IN NOT 10:42
02. TRAENEN DER SEHNSUCHT 8:41
03. CRUCIFIXIO 5:30
04. SCHAKAL 6:38
05. NOT EVERY PAIN HURTS 5:16
06. ALLEINE ZU ZWEIT 4:10

10. A.U.S. 6:42
11. ROTE SINFONIE 6:11

Apart from this and some others, various contents of the box are still in production and if there are no further pandemic-related closures in Hamburg, the box will be available in December. More information will follow shortly.
This is about a long-cherished heart project: 12 very special artists, including bands like LORD OF THE LOST, LACRIMAS PROFUNDERE, SEMBLANT, MONO INC, GLEIS 8 (feat. Manne Uhlig, Ex-LACRIMOSA and AnNa R., Ex-ROSENSTOLZ), and even JP GENKEL, YENZ LEONHARDT and HENRIK FLYMAN interpret their favorite Lacrimosa tracks in their very own way! A feast for the ears!
With the title “Cover Up” this CD is a real jewel in the anniversary box! By the way, in the next post you will find information on the box’s pre-sale.
Therefor here is another answer to the question: What else is in the box?
For example this beautiful flag in 90x150cm.
Here comes another highlight of the box: The CD “Versions”. On the one hand, I dug deep into my archive for this, because the CD begins with piano recordings from Lacrimosa’s first weeks and months (at that time still on cassette recorder), continues with a rehearsal room and two live recordings from 1993, or an unplugged version of “Alles Lüge” on the occasion of an award ceremony in 1996, and on the other hand there is the piano interpretation of “Einsamkeit” from spring, the piano and string version of “Weil Du Hilfe brauchst” from the streaming concert, as well as a previously unreleased piano interpretation of “Schakal”!
All in all, 72 refreshing Lacrimosa minutes.
By the way, the cover is also a version, it’s a sketch by Stelio Diamantopoulos for the first version of the cover of the album… but you can read that in the booklet.
