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...

Amaranthe – The Nexus (2013) – Review

Wow! We found ourselves some nexus here. Right? The Rasmus on steroids with a taste of Britney Spears! And this featuring a female front and two more male singers – one clear voice, the other growls. It is kind of a vocalist overkill of sorts. And all that voodoo is delivered without the feathers that you would have gotten from Lauri and his gang! One could describe it as total Pop and Disco Metal, fully out of control, but with a few solos made by Olof Mörck. Those got my attention straight away by the way – not bad at all.

In addition, some of the growls would make Arch Enemy proud.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
