    Tour: Dead And Rising Tour

    I've been listening to Lacuna Coil since Comalies and this was the first chance I've been able see them live (and headlining). I must say, they certainly did not disappoint! I arrived a little early so I could buy tickets for another show at Slim's while the box office was still open and uncrowded. While there, there was a guy hanging out, chatting with the few people in line. He seemed kinda familiar, and then it dawned on me. It was Andrea Ferro, the male vocalist for Lacuna Coil! As he started to head into the venue, I gave me a nod of acknowledgement and a "Oh, hey!" so he came over, shook my hand with a big smile, and made a little small talk. Really nice guy! After that, I wandered off to find some grub . Not wanting to give up my precious street parking, I decided to just suck it up and wait in line. …

    Lássuk hát a legfrissebb szubjektív szinopszist a tavalyi esztendő gyümölcsöskertjéből. Mint azt a szerkesztőségi összefoglalásomban említettem, megítélésem szerint 2012 verte az azt megelőző évet, és bár ezúttal a (megjelenés után) számomra egy percig sem volt kétséges az év lemezének kiléte, elégedetten mondhatom, hogy gyakorlatilag az első hét-nyolc helyezett bármelyikét büszkén neveztem volna meg a múlt esztendő legjobb anyagának, de a no. 1 gultiy pleasure-ön túl, az eredményben több pikantéria is akad: egyfelől a nemzetiségeket tekintve Ausztrália 2 jelöltjével papíron is alátámasztotta az évközbeni hipotézisemet, miszerint arrafelé újabban nagyon ráéreztek a csapatok a fém zenék művelésének nívós mikéntjére, másrészről pedig a 2(-3?) deathcore csapás jelenléte is kellemes meglepetésként jelzi, hogy messze nem kopott még ki teljesen a színtér, mindezek tetejében pedig nagy feltámadásoknak is fültanúi lehettünk.

    Nightwish Lacuna Coil Epica in here somewhere probably, last.fm's journal linking sucks btw


    In case you can't tell, I've listened to like two Lacuna Coil songs, ever. So if you find it aggravating when someone writes about something they know next to nothing about...well...prepare to be aggravated. To continue your aggravation, this is sort of presented in my unoriginal pseudo stream of conciousness format, which I have dubbed STREAM OF AWESOMENESS. I probably stole that from somewhere.



    1. Trip the Darkness

    Generic-sounding nu-metal male voice, check. They strike a decent balance for the first half, but honestly it's mostly forgettable, and sounds like an awkward hybrid of Evanescence and Flyleaf. Neither of which I'm a big fan of. (7/10)


    2. Against You

    Well, apparently they're adopting an antagonistic style against me, because I didn't much care for the first track. Well, they're definitely leaning more toward the weird hybrid than anything else. Also, I don't know how this is GOTHIC METAL. …
