Marco Coti-Zelati Produces New Track “Raven” For Melissa VanFleet

MelissaVanFleetRaven1200On October 13, 2017, American alt-metal artist Melissa VanFleet released her highly anticipated and hauntingly compelling new single, “Raven,” available now at all major digital retailers.

The single was recorded in February 2017 at BRX Studio in Milan with the team behind Italian gothic metal band Lacuna Coil’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Delirium – bassist/producer Marco “Maki” Coti-Zelati with engineers Marco Barusso (Thirty Seconds To Mars, Coldplay), Dario Valentini and Marco D’Agostino – and features guest musician Douglas Blair (W.A.S.P.) on lead guitar.

Blending atmospherically dark orchestration with heavy, melodic guitars and Coti-Zelati’s trademark bass tone, the soaring “Raven” showcases VanFleet’s emotionally intense signature vocal delivery and powerful songwriting ability, establishing her as an artist to watch.

Lacuna Coil Release Video “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You”

After launching a video clip for the song “Blood, Tears, Dust”  LACUNA COIL are revealing the full story of their two conceptual videos with their latest clip for the song “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You”. Like “Blood, Tears, Dust” the video was directed and edited by Cosimo Alemà and produced by the production company Borotalco.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “The videos we shot with Cosimo Alemà are exactly what we wanted to deliver visually, especially if connected with a record like ’Delirium’. The darkness, the intensity, the script itself are taking the viewer to the dimension we wanted to be transported to. ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’ and ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ are tightened together in a twisted story that I like a lot as there is so much that can be defined with each one’s imagination. Interpreting different characters was also exciting, an interesting challenge I hadn’t faced until then. I hope the viewers can capture the magic we breathed while we shot them.”

Andrea Ferro (vocals): “Every age has its form of storytelling, and video clips have been a huge part of our culture. Talking with Cosimo (Alemà/director) and our label we decided to create something to bring back the artistic quality video clips used to have. We put our love for cinema into our video for the song ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’, as you will see there is a clear inspiration from TV series like ‘True Detective’ and also a certain ‘Twin Peaks’/’Resident Evil’ vibe. We wanted the viewers to contemplate the story and question what it really means. There is also a tight connection with the previous video for the song ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ as both clips should be considered almost as one single piece. The videos clearly explore the main theme of our latest album, ‘Delirium’, and all its madness and symbols. It’s been a really great and challenging experience to be on the set for several days and work in ‘cinema style’ for the very first time to create something completely new for LACUNA COIL.”
