Shallowlife Review by Jason

Shallow Life CoverEmptyspiral Community member Jason has reviewed Lacuna Coil’s forthcoming album Shallowlife.
In his review, Jason takes us through each of the songs on the album. He concludes with:

Shallow Life is a glorious departure from previous Lacuna Coil albums and should be a huge hit. Whether you are a fan of metal, goth or rock there is something for everyone on the album. The band shows that they can play a diverse selection of music and still keep their roots intact. With the changes come the fact that for the first time the band doesn’t play an Italian lyric song for a studio album. Instead they rise to a groundbreaking new level in which genres are twisted and labels don’t exist. After many years of working hard at concerts for their fans, Lacuna Coil are now on the brink of breaking out and having crossover success in the mainstream. They are back and stronger than ever.
