RockmusicRaider Review - Lacuna Coil - Delirium - Album CoverLooks like it takes an asylum visit and some lineup changes to kick things up a notch. After the two somewhat swell deliveries Lacuna Coil mustered before, the band now lets loose their newest full length album Delirium this spring 2016 with renewed gusto. And it is some gusto, I can tell ya. 

What a change compared to Broken Crown Halo of 2014: This newly invented style is astonishingly good in more ways than one and an amazing feat pulling off such a record in a very reasonable time scale. Loud, screechy, scratchy, dirty, but still inarguably Lacuna Coil, they forge forward without looking left or right. Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - Lacuna Coil - Broken Crown Halo - Album CoverYou know what this makes me think of? Mainstream – rock solid mainstream. This is what the 7th studio album ‘Broken Crown Halo’ of Lacuna Coil screams at me. All this wrapped nicely in the typical Lacuna Coil ball gown – perhaps with more Pop Rock mixed into it this time. Some softer tongues (not the evil ones, for once) in the reviewer community seem to tell me that all this is an attempt for Lacuna Coil to redeem themselves and to re-discover their old style. But gosh, if I would face the final exit of a long time lead guitarist AND the drummer to boot, for sure I would put the pedal to the metal.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Lacuna Coil – Dark Adrenaline (2012) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Lacuna Coil - Dark Adrenaline - Album CoverFirst impression: Talk about crispy and – yes – meaty. Very meaty! Low bass, scratchy, corny – all that jazz! This is how the 6th studio album ‘Dark Adrenaline’ of the Italian band ‘Lacuna Coil’ presents itself at the opening. And with some nice and very #Metal tunes to booth. Or should we say ‘would like’ to present itself? Because on the other hand, whilst definitely rocky and straightforward, it kind of sounds like ‘Evanescence‘ without lithium and on steroids.

And this is how best to describe Dark Adrenaline: A rocky, kind of stormy way of presenting Gothic Metal in a robe pleasing to them masses that judge ye so harshly.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
