New LACUNA COIL Will Have More Growling, Will Be Heavier And More Technical
Lacuna Coil is releasing an album called Delirium at some point this year, which will have a pretty different lineup than recent records. The band lost both drummer Cristiano Mozzati and guitarist Cristiano Migliore in 2014, of which the group only replaced Mozzati. Ryan Folden is the group's new drummer, while Marco Biazzi is the band's only guitarist. Got it? Moving on!
In a recent interview with Revolver, as transcribed by Blabbermouth, vocalist Cristina Scabbia said the band will be making a move toward heavier, more technical music, alongside growled vocals.
"Well, the new sound is definitely gonna be heavier, a little bit more technical, 'cause he's really, really good, so we can play with drums. But there are gonna be a lot of differences. I mean, we reintroduced a lot of growls with the singing as well. So, overall, it's gonna be more heavy than it used to be. I mean, it's weird to say, because, on one side, we're going back, because we're going back to the Lacuna Coil roots, with a lot more growling, more aggressive [and] and more metal, but on the other side, there are a lot of new elements. So it's a combination of things that makes everything really new for us. We're always talking about evolution, because it's always been the right way for us — not to get stuck in one place, to try to find different things, to take some risks. I mean, sometimes we've been criticized for our choices, but we see that [as] the only way to go on. You can't do the same thing over and over. You wouldn't do it in life, so we don't want to do it in our music."
I'm not the biggest Lacuna Coil fan currently residing on planet Earth, but I've always checked the band's new material out and there's an extremely good chance I'll be queuing this one up as well. Heavier Lacuna Coil with added technicality? Sure, why not!
Bonus points to the group for trying to reinvent itself despite being around for nearly 20 years.
