This band has two singers, The beautiful Cristina Scabbia who has possibly one of the best voices I have ever heard, and the more gruff voice of Andrea Ferro. The two voices contrast each other and are a delight to hear together.
All the instruments in this band are played together to perfection, and it all just goes together so well, its quite amazing to hear.
Every song on this album is good, but the picks would be "Swamped", Heaven's a lie", "Daylight Dancer", "The Ghost woman and the hunter", "Unspoken", "Entwined" and the excellent, and my favourate Lacuna song, "Comalies".
This band truelly is a diamond in the ruff of todays music, pick it up no matter what you like, this is definately the sort of music that could appeal to rock and Britney fans alike. Buy it now, you wont regret it!
There is a song to fit every mood; from the slow ethereal grace of 'The Ghost Woman and the Hunter', to the obvious digust and hatred in 'Angel's Punishment'. Each track blends seemlessly into the next, taking you on an epic adventure across the scope of the imagination.
Christina Scabbia's enchanting vocals entice you into their Italian-gothic world, and fits wonderfully next to Andrea's harsh and powerful voice.
Lacuna Coil have demonic backing guitars and rhythms which drive the music forward, as well as their unusually melodic tunes and powerful choruses.
In conclusion - definitely not one to be missed!
If you are a Slipknot toting 'depressed' teeny 'gawth' vampire wannabe writhing in your anguish then this is way too blissful for you.
There isn't a dull moment or a low point on this album and each time you listen you find a new purity in it. This is an album you really should own.
I saw them live on Halloween last month and they were brilliant, especially in their performances of 'Comalies' and 'Entwined'.
Their first album, Unleashed Memories, was testament to just such an old school gothic mentality - gripping riffs, solid melodies and a refreshing intermix of Andrea Ferro's growling vocals and Cristina Scabbia's uplifting singing.
It is in fact this particular feature of LC's 'sound' that defined them. The harmonic antithesis resulting from the harsh vs light, dark vs uplifting, male vs female combo gave the band a serious edge.
Disappointingly, this is not the case with Comalies. Although there is still an "edge" to speak of, it isn't the result of such contradictory harmony. Cristina's has in effect taken over, and even though Andrea is still in the picture, he seems to have faded away.
Thus the album tends to be much more one-dimensional which in turn makes it harder to listen to from beggining to end. Another side-effect of this lack of depth is that the album sounds "commercial".
Not that there's anything wrong with commercial music. Unless, that is, you aspire to any "old-metal" values.
