Lacuna Coil Recording
Andrea Ferro (vocals) describes the meaning behind the album's unique title: "When it came to coming up with an album title I wanted to combine one 'old' word that is spiritually connected with another that offers a link to our more 'modern' times. If there were an actual translation of Karmacode it would be something like 'spiritual DNA and the message behind it'. The title attempts to balance our modern, overwhelming, self-centered, fast-paced lifestyles and the desire we all have to live a more spiritual, more compassionate and more fulfilling life."
With three full-length albums and two EPs to their credit, LACUNA COIL has ensured that each offering further enunciates the subtle, solemn beauty the sextet creates. Comalies maturely exhibits the trademarked gothic overtones and poignant melancholy of their haunting musical landscape.
In early 2004, Lacuna Coil's successes were validated with an invitation to participate in that year's Ozzfest, supporting such metal stalwarts as Judas Priest, Slayer and Ozzy himself. Additional summer touring with P.O.D. and Ozzfest off-date performances with Superjoint Ritual and Devildriver gave the band its busiest season yet. Led by the undeniably captivating Cristina Scabbia (vocals), the group garnered mainstream acclaim from such publications as Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and Stuff, among others.
The group spent this summer performing at some of Europe's premier festivals alongside such household names as Green Day, Incubus and System of A Down, while completing the songwriting process for the new album. Karmacode is shaping up to be the band's career defining release and it will force the entire hard rock world to take notice.
