Delirium Album Review

DeliriumHow to start with a review of Delirium…? Well, you know that scene in The Shining movie when Jack Nicholson axes through the door and says ‘Here’s Johnny!’?  Well, replace Jack with Lacuna Coil, and the door with everything you thought you knew about their music. OK, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but there are a number of reasons for the comparison. There is a madness here, the music hits like an axe, and the band are pushing limits in scary ways. Oh, and you’ll remember it for a long time…

You can review the rest of the exclusive review of Lacuna Coil’s album ‘Delirium’ here.  Check it out!

Delirium will be released on 27th May, pre-order it now.


Lacuna Coil Live Review in Kerrang Magazine

K1543coverThe London show of Lacuna Coil’s Broken Crown Halo tour is reviewed in the November 15th issue of UK rock magazine Kerrang! and they give it an excellent 4Ks!  The magazine has this to say:

“If Motionless In White’s hammering display is the musical equivalent of a Saw film, then Lacuna Coil’s is more akin to a Dario Argento cult horror classic – stylishly presented and operatic in scope. According to singer Cristina Scabbia – tonight dressed like she’s broken out of an asylum in a wedding dress – their approach has always  come from the uncomplicated wish that their their audiences “leave here with a smile on [their] faces”. It’s one they achieve once more tonight, through the simple formula of having huge songs (including Heavens a Lie and their excellent cover of Depeche Mode’s Enjoy The Silence) flawlessly performed – with Cristina’s vocal performance proving particularly exceptional.  And by the time Our Truth caps off the evening in a flurry of red and black balloons, it’s clear that Lacuna Coil are the kings and queen of Hallowe’en +1.”

Issue 1543 of Kerrang! is available now.

Shallowlife Review by Jason

Shallow Life CoverEmptyspiral Community member Jason has reviewed Lacuna Coil’s forthcoming album Shallowlife.
In his review, Jason takes us through each of the songs on the album. He concludes with:

Shallow Life is a glorious departure from previous Lacuna Coil albums and should be a huge hit. Whether you are a fan of metal, goth or rock there is something for everyone on the album. The band shows that they can play a diverse selection of music and still keep their roots intact. With the changes come the fact that for the first time the band doesn’t play an Italian lyric song for a studio album. Instead they rise to a groundbreaking new level in which genres are twisted and labels don’t exist. After many years of working hard at concerts for their fans, Lacuna Coil are now on the brink of breaking out and having crossover success in the mainstream. They are back and stronger than ever.
