Artist Bio
Lacuna CoilThere is no better indication that greatness can be achieved through a resilient work ethic than Lacuna Coil, whose aggressive touring and extensive critical praise have now poised them for mainstream domination. The group initially left their mark on the hard rock scene in 2004 with their acclaimed album, Comalies, which opened several opportunities for them that were previously thought unattainable for an Italian band, such as two highly successful commercial radio campaigns alongside a breakthrough Ozzfest appearance resulting in over 500,000 copies sold worldwide with a quarter of a million in the U.S. alone. Now, Lacuna Coil returns with their highly anticipated new album, Karmacode, which is another huge step forward in the band?s continuous evolution. It has been years since an artist came along that could redefine a genre, but this group has the potential to do just that. This is the next big thing.With four full-length albums and two EPs now to their credit, Lacuna Coil have ensured that each offering further enunciates the subtle, solemn beauty they create. Karmacode takes that a step further, seeing them further mature as musicians and songwriters to deliver their most cohesive, career-defining album. If karma has anything to do with it, Italy's most successful rock export will not have to wait long for the entire mainstream world to take notice.
Reviews
ReviewSource PopMatters
Review The band's one major contribution to the development of goth metal has been the dual male/female lead vocals of Andrea Ferro and Scabbia, and although Karmacode doesn't change the vocal arrangement at all, Scabbia's presence is gradually becoming more dominant. Rightfully so, as she possesses a tremendous voice, capable of hitting the high notes, yet avoiding the operatic bombast of After Forever's Floor Jansen and former Nightwish singer Tarja Turunen. As for Ferro, he continues to serve as a good foil for Scabbia, the pair trading lines effectively on such songs as "Fragile" and "Devoted", but after four albums, his borderline monotone growl is starting to sound tiresome and predictable. Thankfully, Scabbia is always there to rescue each song, evidenced perfectly by "Within Me", which opens with a typically tone-deaf verse by Ferro, only to be answered with an absolutely gorgeous chorus by Scabbia. It's formulaic, but at least this band knows how to work the formula well.
