While I’ve been immersed in Tool’s new album, Fear Inoculum, I didn’t quite miss the fact that Lacuna Coil put out a new album, Black Anima. I did feature one of the singles released from this album, “Reckless.” That was back in September of last year. The album came out in October. And they completed their first ever US tour this past summer in support of that album. “Disease of the Anima” tour. I would like to say that I saw them, (they were in Ohio, after all) but crowds like that bother me these days. Concerts are for the young. At least they aren’t for me. (My hearing is in bad enough shape as it is.)
Lacuna Coil is an Italian band that has had a few changes over the years. The Wiki lists them differently in different places. Alternative Metal might be the best view of them today.
Now that I’ve had a chance to live with the album for a while, I like some songs, and I don’t like others. (I have to say that “Reckless” is one of my favorites. “Apocalypse” also isn’t bad. There is a nice guitar solo that starts at about 2:40 into the song, or maybe a little later.
Lyrics are at this link. Because while they may be singing in English, it is Metal.
This song is “Apocalypse” by Lacuna Coil, from their album Black Anima which came out on October 11th.
In no way is the choice of this song a comment on the current political situation in this country. Not consciously anyway.
