  • Biography

    Andrea and Marco formed Sleep of Right, but soon changed their name to Ethereal, and signed to Century Media at the end of 1997.Finding that the name Ethereal was already taken, they changed their name to Lacuna Coil, which means empty spiral.

    The band consisted at that point of co-vocalists Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro with bassist/keyboardist Marco Coti Zelati. The band recorded a self-titled EP released in 1998, and went on tour supporting label-mates Moonspell. The band was accompanied for this tour by guitarist Cristiano Migliore and drummer Cristiano Mozzati.

    Following a second European tour, the band recorded their debut full-length album, In a Reverie, and added second guitarist Marco Biazzi. The band supported the album with another European tour, co-headlining with Skyclad.

    Following another EP in the form of "Half-Life" in 2000, and album entitled "Unleashed Memories" in 2001, the band released Comalies in 2002, an album which received acclaim and rave reviews from certain corners of the metal world.Over a year later, the first single from this album, Heaven's a Lie, began to receive radio and media attention and pulled the band into the mainstream. The second single, Swamped, was played in heavy rotation, and was used in the video game "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines", both in one of the game's fictitious clubs and along with the game's endgame credits. Music videos were filmed for both songs and broadcast on MTV2's Headbanger's Ball.

    By 2004, Comalies had become the best-selling CD in Century Media's history. The band appeared at Ozzfest in between headlining club tours in America and Europe.

    In an effort to best take advantage of Lacuna Coil's ascendant popularity, the band and label postponed the release of their highly-anticipated follow up to Comalies, Karmacode, to early 2006. According to the band's website, this made it possible for more time to be spent on production while also avoiding the crowded summer 2005 release schedule for metal albums.[citation needed] On December 23, 2005 the band announced via their official web site that all recording, mixing, and mastering had been finished and that Karmacode is complete.[citation needed] It was then announced that Karmacode would be released in USA on April 4, 2006. One of its tracks, "Our Truth", is the first single (and video) and is featured as well on the soundtrack of the movie Underworld: Evolution in stores on January 10, 2006. The video has had rotation on MTV.

    During their 2005 European Tour, Lacuna Coil performed two new songs (working titles "A2" and "Antonio") at selected concerts. "Our Truth" is one of these songs, tentatively referred to at the time as "Antonio", while the song "A2" has been renamed to "Fragile", and is the opening track on Karmacode.

    Karmacode debuted at #28 on the Billboard Charts. It received critical acclaim from music critics and magazines. Corresponding with the release of the new album, Lacuna Coil went on tour with Rob Zombie throughout North America in early 2006 also making an appearance at Ozzfest 2006 on the main stage. The band also played at the 2006 Download Festival, a three-day festival in England's Donington Park which was headlined by Metallica, Tool, and Guns N' Roses. They are also scheduled to play one night in the UK at Sheffield Corporation on October 17th. This December, Lacuna Coil will be teaming up with In Flames for a US Tour, though they are currently on board the Blackest of the Black 2006 tour with headlining act Danzig, and bands like Asesino, Belphegor, and The Haunted

    In March 2007, Lacuna Coil joined Stone Sour and Shadows Fall on the Jägermeister Music Tour. In May, they toured the US with Within Temptation and The Gathering on the
