Lacuna Coil

A couple of weeks ago, I heard the song Our Truth by a band I'd never heard of, Lacuna Coil. I was really impressed, so tonight after work I sampled then purchased their album Karma Code, where this song appears.

This group is interesting but hard to pin down, except to say it's a form of rock. If I were to describe them in the form of comparison, I'd have to say it's like combining Evenescence with Korn. The B&N music information lists them as a goth/metal combination, which I guess is accurate.

They're an Italian group, though they sing in English. They're rock is a lot like Evenescence, except it's heavier and perhaps a bit darker. Personally I like one or two songs by Evenescence, but after a while the album gave me mild headaches...I think it has too much trebel for my taste. Anyway, Lacuna Coil (which is Italian for "empty spiral" BTW) has a lot more bass to it, also the music has many moments that have a dramatic feel.

I really dig it, and encourage others to check it out.

Sounds interesting. Actually, if you read Evanescence's site, Amy's comments regarding the lyrics are supposed to be "hopeful". Must be a different use of the English language, but I still like the CD.

I'll have to sample "Lacuna Coil".
