Lacuna Coil has had an extremely successful 2004 as they emerged as this year’s Ozzfest breakthrough artist and watched their latest album, "Comalies," break the 150,000 SoundScan mark in the U.S. The group consistently outsold every Ozzfest band (minus Slipknot) each week with the oldest release of any second stage act. Even mainstage acts Black Label Society, Superjoint Ritual and Dimmu Borgir weekly album sales combined were surpassed by Lacuna Coil's weekly sales alone. All of this coupled with the commercial radio support of their latest single “Swamped” helped the album even crack the coveted Billboard Top 200 chart at #178. Comalies continues to SoundScan a steady 5,000 units per week.

Lacuna Coil was just hailed as one of the “Ten Bands To Watch” by Rolling Stone magazine in their next issue, which hits newsstands on Sept. 23rd. Cristina Scabbia (vocals) also caught the attention of Stuff magazine who dedicated a two-page feature to her in their September issue. The group’s hit single, “Swamped,” is currently featured on the "Resident Evil: Apocalypse Soundtrack" and the Vampire: Bloodlines videogame.

LOL. Most bands that you like are very korny and are cookie monster metal. That kind of metal sux. Can anyone understand what they are saying. And most of you people hate it when a band such as Lacuna Coil or Slipknot make it big.

Gee, Ozzfest have really got their finger on the pulse. If Cristina wasn't in the band, no-one would give a sh**, their guitarists are very mediocre. And their older material ain't that heavy.

'most of you people hate it when a band such as Lacuna Coil or Slipknot make it big.'

What similarity is there between these bands? Slipknot are a prefab major label marketing exercise, an exercise in MTV-approved youth anger management, while Lacuna Coil have been slogging it out independently for years, only to achieve fame because they can be catagorised with a vastly inferior, yet much more famous band. And because their singer is hot, and has an extremely beautiful voice.

And Lacuna Coil can't be a disgrace to goth metal - they wholeheartedly deny that tag.

Their guitarists aren't really anything too special, I just love them for Cristina's voice and vocal style I suppose. She has talent spewing out of her left and right.

man, that chick has no talent. Amy Lee is stacks more talented than her or at least she doesn't sound out of tune as much 'cos the music suits her voice more . They're are not even metal, what the hell are they doing at Ozzfest - Dismal Euphony would've been a better choice instead of them. Well, they probly draw a few more people...
Anyway, if I were to listen to any of these chick c*** tease rock bands why bother with LC when Evanescence is just pretty much the same thing but the beta version - on aggregate that's a fact as Evanescence is outselling them a hundred time over. Sure they're the breakout artist of ozzfest as their music is the easiest to listen to outta all the bands there, but this doesn't mean that every1 has to get a hard-on over it when there's bands like them that weren't there but are better (to me at least).

Get out of my face with this talk of record sales. Britney Spears outsells anything in metal, so does that mean she's good? f*** NO. Amy Lee's voice is paper thin and her voice is PRODUCED to sound stronger. Cristina's a natural. f*** off.

And Evanescence are a truly excrable band. I can't put into words how much loathing I have for them.

yeah...I mean the death and black metal scene is just saturated. Everyone is doing it and it's pretty boring now. Like these days I couldn't listen to that sh*t for more than 5 minutes before I go for something easy to bounce, headbang and sing to e.g. Machine Head's latest. That's what metal is all about! Well..LC wouldn't be the thing for me, but it makes for a half decent chillout tune

f**k opeth man, they're technical, but boring. I had their Still Life CD, but I traded it 'cos I'll listen to one song (which I think goes for like an hour or some s**t) and wouldn't think about listening to it again for a year or so. Pretty boring sh** and not entertaining enough, kinda like Dream Theater but crappier...may be if they cut their songs shorter and stop the f**ing around, they'd be worth something. Dark Tranquility I reckon makes for a slightly better listen.

Opeth and Dream Theater are not in the same league. Opeth are geniuses, while Dream Theater represent the emotionally dead side of modern prog. Has anyone else heard their latest? Complete waste of time. It even adds a certain nu-metal influence. (shudders)

Well, I don't mind nu-metal, but I do mind boring music and Opeth's music just happens to be so. Now pull your head outta your boyfriend ass, and just listen to a song called Nectar - its off Morningrise. As well as having lotsa cheezy overused riffs there's JUST TOO MUCH REDUNDANT MATERIAL. Dream Theater's latest - Train of Thought is awesome - and its pretty heavy for a rock record. Musically they s**t on Opeth. Hell, when I think about even Lacuna Coil is more entertaining than Opeth.

Geniuses my ass. Geniusues are creative and can think outside the box - Opeth sound like a bunch a half assed music school graduates, but they may sound like some sorta miracle to you imbaciles!

Ha Ha Ha...

The way to respond to someone as close minded as that is to respond once, and if the message doesn't get through, assume they're too stupid and move on. Idiots aren't worth the extra keystrokes.

Most f***s who think Opeth is boring think so because they can't handle music with the following attributes -
a) few to no choruses
b) long songs (because of radio most are conditioned to be 3-4 minute jingles)
c) gradually building and unfolding riffs are no good, it's instant gratification or nothing - play the hook and get out of here.

But, as for clit, f*** I don't know, you'd think that being into Dream Theater he wouldn't have these problems. Redundant riffs? (Sigh) Don't you ever find that repetition (when used well, and that's hard to do) is a great tool for building tension and atmosphere? I would pick Nectar over any Dream Theater piece of sh**, especially off of Train Of Thought - a complete abortion would be a polite way to describe that album.

I love it when people try and get all high and mighty with their intellect, yet can't spell. Imbaciles, indeed.

I don't really get who ever decided Lacuna Coil was a metal band anyway, I think they're a decent band with a very good singer. They aren't even remotely nu metal? What the hell is that? I see no comparison between this band and actual nu-metal bands such as slipknot. I'm tired of so many things being called nu metal anyway.

they are nu metal in every sense of the genre

no solos, easy riffs, catchy chorus's that take up half the song, a gimmick, and a sh**ty new album

I have to agree that Lacuna Coil is not nu-metal. I'm not exactly sure what would make them nu-metal based on what I've heard just on this topic. f*** all you Opeth haters!!!

yeah but no solos, easy riffs, catchy choruses, a gimmick, and a sh**ty new album are characteristics of so many different kinds of music, not at all just limited to nu-metal.
