Lacuna Coil can found in a number of publications this month. The band is mentioned in Hit Parader, Criz appears alongside other drummers in an Ozzfest feature in Revolver, and finally Metal Edge reviews Lacuna Coil’s Ozzfest performance in Cleveland.
The magazine has this to say:
“One band that did stand out in both style and performance was Italy’s Lacuna Coil. This is a band that’s spent the last two years touring for Comalies with a variety of bands so brutally mismatched, it boggles the mind that they haven’t been eaten alive.
Singer Cristina Scabbia’s presence is one major reason why this band has succeeded in front of every audience they’ve faced, and Ozzfest was no exception. Whether or not you like Lacuna Coil’s goth-tinged brand of melodic metal, Scabbia’s talent lifts this band in a way that cannot be denied. With Scabbia’s male counterpart Andrea Ferro and bassist Marco Coti Zelati both celebrating birthdays this day, Lacuna Coil performed a spirited four song set that included the current hits “Heaven’s A Lie” and “Swamped,” as well as fan favorite “Daylight Dancer.”
Never mind that Lacuna Coil faced the worst downpour of the day the minute they set foot on the stage. Never mind that they were the only band forced to deal with lightning during their set. Lacuna Coil’s entwined blend of swirling, hypnotic rhythms lifted the crowd into some old fashioned head banging and crowd surfing at Ferro’s urging and Scabbia’s siren call. Lacuna Coil were a welcome respite from the pummeling, and it should be interesting to see if they can jump to the main stage next year, when they finally return with a new album. “
