Quick introductory interview.

Interview with Lachrima Corphus Dissolvens.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

My name is Antonio Ortiz vocalist, founder and leader of the band LACHRIMA CORPHUS DISSOLVENS. The band was created in the year 2003 in La Paz – Bolivia, with Beyson Q on the Guitar, Eugenia M on the Keyboards, Mario S. as Drummer and myself as Vocalist.

We began by recording covers of bands that influenced us, and some compositions. We had a few live shows, but have not done any live presentations from 2009 onwards. Instead we dedicated ourselves to recording records with the new incarnation of the band, which is: Anthony Ortiz – Vocalist and Choruses, Beyson Q. – Guitar and Bass and Jhoel V. Keyboards and Effects.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

For the year 2003 in our País the in vogue style was Black Metal and Heavy Metal, my idea was to evidence and to create something different in the style of music that was breaking down completely in that epoch, showing the reality, cruelty, suffering, the love toward the death; the fact that without meaning to, we destroy our nature, and nature is paying our charges: from there comes LACHRIMA's name CORPHUS DISSOLVENS (Cuerpo Disolviéndose in Lágrimas). The style of music changed, with Guitars acoustic and electric, changes expedited in the Drums, environmental, dark and melancholic keyboards, Voices, heartbreaking with suffering, with hatred, and normal voices doing chorus to melancholy. From there comes the style 'Acoustic Experimental Doom'.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

Having gotten to record 3 records, as the country has not much support to the scene and it is very difficult to do a recording.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

Empyrium, Saturnus and Katatonia

5. What are your plans for the near future?

Recording more records, and we are in a project to record a live DVD with invited musicians towards the end of 2015.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

Thanking our families for their support, that they are passionate about our music, and all these years stood by us and everybody.
