Lacuna Coil in Metal Hammer’s ’20 Albums You Must Own in 2005′

Lacuna Coil are included in Metal HammerÕs ÔThe 20 Albums You Must Hear In 2005Õ article in the January 2005 (#135) issue. The metal magazine has this to say about the upcoming album:

Rumoured Title: ÔEvanescence, Who They?Õ
Label: Century Media
ETA: June
In the two years or more since the last Lacuna Coil album, ÔComaliesÕ, was released, Evanescence have come from nowhere to achieve mega status, leaving Cristina Scabbia being labelled by the ignorant as an Amy Lee copyist. Now, with a real international momentum, itÕs time for Lacuna Coil to strike with a Euro-goth album thatÕs heavy yet melodic. Move over NightwishÉ

Metal Hammer magazine is on sale now.
