EDITORS’ NOTES

The Italian metal greats take the plunge into darker, heavier sound on Delirium. Lacuna Coil have mastered dramatic, symphonic metal—with their thick riffs wafting with synths and Cristina Scabbia’s siren voice. Delirium drifts into metalcore territories with double-bass drum breakdowns and throat-shredding growls. Songs like “The House of Shame” and “Ghost in the Mist“ reflect this shift, while “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You” and “Claustrophobia” brings out a new animal in Scabbia.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Scabbia sounds amazing!

I can't wait to hear the full album. "The House of Shame" is heavy, and Cristina's vocals are totally unique and melodic.

Disappointing

For me, I am not a fan of the screaming growls in music. There are few bands that use it sparingly and it works. This effort from LC goes overboard and the growls, in my opinion remove the greatness of the music and lyrics. Its less about the beauty of LC and more about the anger that is incoherent in much of todays heavy metal rock. Its to bad too, because the music was, as always, beautiful, and Christina’s voice (when not overshadowed) by the monotonous and monotoned growl could have made this album epic. Instead, for this huge fan, it is just a long and painful experience that I wish not to go through again.
