Title: “Naughty Christmas” (Single)
Label: Century Media Records
Release Date: 12/23/2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Rating: 4/5

I love Christmastime and I know that I’ve probably said that more than a few times in the past. My love of the holiday season is compounded with my love of that which is Metal and when a band decides to offer up their own seasonal track it’s something that I need to discuss with the readership. We’ve had terrific and often grandiose compositions from Trans-Siberian Orchestra but outside of the Twisted Sister Christmas and a few others, there are not too many bands taking this sort of plunge. Lucky for us that Lacuna Coil has worked out a promising Holiday Heaviness in the form of “Naughty Christmas” and here is the scoop on the number.

“Comalies” by Lacuna Coil

Artist: Lacuna Coil
Title: “Comalies” (enhanced)
Label: Century Media Records
Release Date: 10/22/2002
Genre: Gothic Metal
Rating: 8.5/10

When you first listen to Lacuna Coil you might be reminded in some fashion of the band Evanescence but if you dismiss them as merely another version of that band you are missing out entirely. While there might be a few vocal nuances in Amy Lee that you hear you will find that Christina Scabbia is a total powerhouse with a comparable if not better voice at the end of the day. I bought this album very late in the game but had seen the group open up as support for Type-O-Negative when they last toured but at the time I was not as open. New bands don’t always thrill me and seeing them live is not my preferred means of my education to their sound. However Lacuna Coil is a band that has been generating a much deserved positive buzz across the industry with their that are both heavy on drama and so easy to enjoy. Classified as “Gothic” or “Dark Metal” the CD “Comalies” is a treat to the senses. The riffs are tasty and Christina shares her powerful range with male counterpart Andrea Ferro. This works very well as each seem to compliment one another even though the true shining star is Ms. Scabbia. Hailing from Italy the band is rounded out by members Cristiano Migliore & Marco Biazzi (guitars), Marco Coti Zelati (bass & keyboards) and Cristiano Mozzati (drums).
