Tablature Section Updated And New Downloads Added

I have fully updated the Lacuna Coil Tablature section to today, adding a number of new guitar and bass tabs, as well as making the whole section easier to use. You can check it out here…

Two new downloads have also been added. The first is a montage video to the tune of Aeon – created Blackmaiden, and the second is a Lacuna Coil web browser developed by Irechan. They can be found here and here respectively.

My thanks to Pinkpanther for the help compiling the tabs, and to Blackmaiden and Irechan for their creations!


Lacuna Coil in ‘Q’ Magazine

The February 2005 (#223) issue of Q Magazine includes Lacuna Coil in their ‘Class of 2005’ featurette. The magazine has this to say about the band:

“Proof that America doesn’t have the monopoly on lush goth-metal, Italy’s Lacuna Coil won over the tattoed hordes at last year’s Ozzfest with their darkly seductive noise. Coming to a black T-shirt near you.”

Well, they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity…
