KARMACODE (RE-ISSUE 2018)
Italy's goth-metal practitioners Lacuna Coil are unique among their heavy-metal brethren. With their sharp songwriting skills and high-minded classical influences, and the evocative vocals of lead singer Christina Scabbia, the band has an undeniably distinctive sound. KARMACODE, Lacuna Coil's 2006 release, is one of their most polished and accomplished efforts.
The band's melodic sensibility, which tends toward the dark and ambient, is at the center of KARMACODE, as is Scabbia's haunting, compelling singing. Moreover, the songs are quite accessible, with a catchiness that belies the group's seemingly anti-mainstream standing. Yet these pretty things adorn a sound that's deeply rooted in the muscle and grind of power metal, creating a sound that is at least as aggressive as it is evocative
