My first encounter with hearing the music of this Italian metal band was their album Karmacode. The songs were very good and the male and female vocals complimented each well. I think I must have seen at least one video for one of the singles. Just looked this up and the video I saw was for the song Our Truth. The lead female vocalist, Cristina Scabbia, has a beautiful voice that I don’t think I could ever tire of hearing. I have two albums by Lacuna Coil, the aforementioned Karmacode and Shallow Life. The band has released two albums since I last heard from them – Dark Adrenaline and this year’s album Broken Crown Halo. I’m looking forward to hearing these albums. Cristina has featured on a number of metal calendars that I’ve seen bundled with Metal Hammer magazine. I’m not sure these sort of calendars are a good idea but there’s no arguing that she is very beautiful but let’s concentrate on the music and the quality of her singing and songwriting.
