Milan-based Lacuna Coil have been the flag bearers of the Italian metal scene since before the turn of the millennium. Starting out as a gothic metal band, they were initially successful in Europe alone. Comalies (2002) was a milestone for the band in Europe but it wasn’t until their 2006 album ‘Karmacode’ that they finally managed to break into the mainstream US market. Lacuna Coil’s sound evolved dramatically over the years: ‘Broken Crown Halo’ (2014) showcases a mature and internationally acclaimed alternative rock and metal band that hasn’t forgotten its gothic roots. The band’s intensive touring schedule has won them a loyal worldwide fan base and deservedly so: Lacuna Coil sound fresh, innovative and dark at the same time. ‘Delirium’ (2016) features a return to full-blooded metal for Lacuna Coil: while Cristina Scabbia exploits the full range of her impressive vocal abilities, Andrea Ferro is back to his old grunting self and an infusion of Meshuggah-style riffs make this the heaviest, darkest Lacuna Coil product yet.
