    [ Lacuna Coil ]


    Comalies

    It's very rare these days for me to get really excited about a record. I'm bitter, old, I've seen it all, and frankly, I hate just about everything. Consider all that, and know that I nearly jumped for joy upon receiving the new Lacuna Coil to review. And I assure you, my reaction was right on the mark; this is one of the most amazing albums I've heard in quite some time. Well, since their last release, but whatever. Produced once again by Waldemar Sorychta, "Comalies" showcases the haunting and beautiful vocals of Cristna Scabbia, and her male counterpart Andrea Ferro ( though it seems his contributions grow smaller with each album) The music on this masterpiece is equally as haunting--powerful, atmospheric, gothic metal. Pure beauty. That's how I can sum up this record. It's the type of thing you can put on when you're alone and in the dark, just close your eyes and get lost in. I cannot express in mere words how much this record can be appreciated. Easily my pick for album of the year.
