Cristina Scabbia Tops Inside Pulse’s Female Vocalist List

Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia is number one in the Female Metal Vocalist Top 10. They have this to say of Cristina:
“Regardless of whether it’s in English or Italian, Scabbia’s understated counterpart to male vocalist Andrea Ferro creates a goth-ish vibe throughout their strong modern metal outings. Often compared in America to Evanescence’s Amy Lee, Scabbia’s credit is that she contributes much more mood with her voice rather than bombast. Her range and ability may not be stars and moons above the competition, but one only realizes this upon extended thought and comparison to others — within Lacuna Coil, everything fits perfectly. She is a master of atmosphere.”

‘Comalies’ Review in Metal Hammer Magazine

Metal Hammer Magazine have a short review of the re-release 2CD version of ‘Comalies’ in the October 2004 issue. They have this to say:

“A timely reissue of LC’s very fine 2002 effort intended to tie in with the sale of 100,000 copies in the US. What makes this of genuine interest, however, is the addition of a second disc featuring 11 different versions of various tracks, plus wallpapers for your computer. Nice

As reported previously here Metal Hammer have also included ‘Heaven’s A Lie’ on the free cover CD.

Lacuna Coil interviewed by Detroit Free Press

Lacuna Coil’s Cristiano Migliore has been interviewed by the Detriot Free Press.
In the interview Cristiano talks about the bands growing success, Ozzfest, and their record contract with Century Media. He has this to add:

“Touring so much the last two years, I’ve started to notice a lot of people you wouldn’t expect to be listening to this kind of music,” he says. “There are people at the shows who don’t look like heavy metal fans. It’s not that easy for bands like us to become as popular as Britney Spears or Madonna. But I think there will always be a place for our music — and we’ll keep evolving.”
