The year is 2014, and the album is “Broken Crown Halo” – it marks the latest chapter in

the ongoing LACUNA COIL legacy, a dark and sultry ride that started in Italy and has

resonated in an opaque wake of sonic splendor throughout the world.

Time has been good to LACUNA COIL, who are a flagship band on Century Media Records

and a proven commodity worldwide, in the past two years alone having toured the globe as

headliners, as well as in support of Megadeth, Motorhead, Volbeat, Sevendust and Paradise

Lost. “Broken Crown Halo” is the band’s seventh studio album, and the highly-anticipated

follow-up to “Dark Adrenaline”, which was released in January 2012 and debuted at No. 15

on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, helping the band eclipse one million cumulative

sales in North America alone.

But as the title suggests, “Broken Crown Halo” isn’t about everything that’s good – it’s

about everything that is real. In particular, the world as it exists in 2014. “We’ve always

been fascinated by the differences and comparisons between real life and fairy tales, and

on this album we decided to mix the two worlds when writing our lyrics,” says frontman

Andrea Ferro, who along with frontwoman Cristina Scabbia form the most effervescent

one-two vocal punch in hard rock and metal. “We’ve fused dark and horror elements with

real life situations and have created a metaphor – we are fighting for a kingdom and a

crown that is not what it seems, it represents the moment of confusion we’re living in and

the very fragile situations we face every day.”

“In the past year we’ve been dealing with a lot of pain that has brought us down as a

band and left us broken and shattered. But it also made us realize how much time has

made us stronger,” continues Ferro. “There have been times that we’ve been trapped in

our past, only to discover that no one but ourselves can free us. When darkness holds you

close, you need to open the wound and let it bleed out…”

And bleed it does, from the resounding drive of opening track “Nothing Stands In Our Way”

and the resolute march of “Zombies”, into the thundering anthem “Die & Rise” and the

soaring rhapsody that is “I Forgive (But I Won’t Forget Your Name).” “Broken Crown Halo”

looks at life through blood red glasses and casts a beautifully melancholic hue over the

world we wander. It is unapologetically brute with a vindictive air, and simultaneously

supple and warm, beckoning you in and challenging you to join the movement. If you

notice a flair for the cinematic in the eleven tracks, your perception is spot on, as LACUNA

COIL wear the influence of their rich Italian culture and heritage on their sleeves.

“We’ve always been fascinated by soundtracks and Italian horror movies,” says Scabbia of

the band’s influence on “Broken Crown Halo” – “Dario Argento is not only a favorite of

ours, he’s also a cult favorite around the world, and bands like Goblin wrote the

soundtracks for a lot of those movies. Growing up with these movies and music, we really

absorbed those influences.” Expands Ferro: “Movies like ‘Deep Red’, ‘Suspiria’, ‘Planet of

the Vampires’ and ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’, and musicians like Ennio Morricone,

Stelvio Cipriani continue to leave their mark on us... Marco [‘Maki’ Coti-Zelati, bass]

often likes to write songs while watching those old movies and war documentaries without

the sound and playing over the visuals.”

Joined in their Milan, Italy hometown by producer Jay Baumgardner [P.O.D., Sevendust,

Evanescence, Papa Roach] who produced and mixed “Broken Crown Halo” as well as

engineer Kyle Hoffman [P.O.D., Bush, Zebrahead], LACUNA COIL recorded in the storied

“Officine Meccaniche” studio, owned by famed songwriter and musician Mauro Pagani of

the Italian prog band Masters P.F.M. The vintage gear and classic influence collided with

the rough and tumble modern world with unique and invigorating results.

“We set the bar pretty high with ‘Dark Adrenaline’ and it hasn’t been easy bringing our

sound to the next level, but we have lived, learned and grown through a year of personal

issues and change,” says the band in a unified voice. “We learned to be strong and get

stronger, and we felt an inner vibe in this band that we haven’t felt before. ‘Broken

Crown Halo’ is Lacuna Coil introducing a new order, and letting nothing stand in our
