Karmacode - Lacuna Coil

Lacuna Coil's newest CD, Karmacode, is their best yet. Their symphonic metal sound has reached a point of maturity where, if they continue to let it grow, they will likely be a band remembered for generations. As always, the voices of Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro compliment each other. Karmacode is infused with more spirituality than their prior releases and has a heavier metal sound than their breakout CD Comalies.

Best Song: "You Create."One minute and thirty-two seconds of pure instrumental with no lyrics, just the siren voice of Cristina Scabbia. And the way the song bleeds into "What I See" will leave you wanting to hear both songs over and over.

The Coolest Part: They manage to do a cover of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" without butchering it. Just the opposite, they do a great job with it.

Best to listen to while reading/writing: Contemporary Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Space Opera, Sword & Sorcery

Format: Enhanced Audio CD
Label: Century Media
Price: $16.98
