Special release to celebrate the 30TH ANNIVERSARY of one of the biggest GOTHIC METAL HYMN ever! Massive Double-CD, 13 Tracks in Digipak with 6p Booklet.

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 the creation 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 quite bad reviews 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 re-released in a unique way: a collection of ALL recordings of the enigmatic song: from the first demo to a previously un- released, 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.

Anyone who likes «Schakal» - and Lacrimosa in general - will love this EP!
