Lacrymae Rerum is one of the few Chilean bands not from the capital Santiago but from Iquique, a town in the far north of the country. The first configuration was that of one man band, with Jason Franelich taking care of all the instruments in the demo of 2005; with the ep Mortui Sepeliant Mortuos (2006) Jason was joined by the voice of Susana Jorquera and the sound shifted towards sounds better defined melodically, between voices and psalmodizing choirs that made it all a sort of soundtrack for a procession of penitents. We had to wait eleven years before we can listen to the first full length The Flies; the sound moves away from the previous work, proving objectively difficult to assimilate, even in light of an exponential increase in its course of the drone component.
