Their highly acclaimed new album, Karmacode, had a phenomenal first week at retail moving an impressive 34,000 units via Nielsen SoundScan, securing the #28 spot on the Billboard Top 200charts. The disc continues to garner impressive Billboard chart numbers each week led by the strength of the hit single “Our Truth,” which is currently a Top 40 single on the U.S. Active Rock charts. LACUNA COIL will make their return to the U.S. on the main stage at Ozzfest this summer, becoming one of the few bands in the tour’s illustrious decade-long history to make the leap from second stage to the main stage.

 

Marco Coti Zelati in the online edition of Bass Player

Marco Coti Zelati is interviewed by Matt Sanchez in the online April edition of Bass Player. Sanchez had this to say about the new album: “At the first listen, thereÕs something strange about Lacuna CoilÕs latest album, Karmacode. The Italian hard rock actÕs songs are intricate, rhythmically interesting, and full of melody, but somehow different. Then it hits you: The other instruments are following the bass. Whenever the guitars and bass lock into a riff, itÕs the bass thatÕs leading the way and controlling the songÕs flow. ÒItÕs the opposite of what youÕd expect,Ó agrees Marco Coti Zelati.”
The article continues with Sanchez interviewing Marco about his inspiration for the new album and other influences.
