CD REVIEW: Lacuna Coil – “Broken Crown Halo”

Lacuna Coil
Lacuna Coil was a band that a few short years ago had a lot going for them. They hit it big with “Heaven’s A Lie” and all things were set in place for them to get the attention they deserved. But wait, somehow the band decided it would go more “Poppy” and less metal; which in turn, lost their momentum with albums that just missed the mark. Lacuna Coil’s last two albums “Dark Adrenaline” and “Shallow Life” share the same sound of repetitive “Nu-Metal” riffs mixed with predictable male/female combo vocals. Fans expecting anything different on their new album will be in for disappointment. “Broken Crown Halo” literally rehashes the same formula with the only difference is that some of the male vocals are bit more on the “extreme” side. Otherwise, it is literally more of the same copy/paste songs this band has been stuck in for years now. Their last album, “Dark Adrenaline”, did have a couple of good tracks on it, but this new one is just one easy to forget song after another.

This band needs an over-haul. First, they really do need to get rid of the male vocals. Secondly, Cristina needs to let loose. She seems to enjoy staying in the same vocal comfort zone lately and at times her delivery is very robotic. I know she can belt it out, but instead the male vocalist gets those parts and it really takes away from the music. And oh yeah, the new album has what is pretty close to what I can only say is Rapping from Cristina on the track “Victim” and “Cybersleep.” It sounds like they are channeling Lady Gaga. FAIL! “Broken Crown Halo” is another failed attempt by a band trying so hard to jump from on one trend to another that they have lost sight of what they actually were in the first place. Just listen to “In Reverie” and “Unleashed Memories” for proof.
