I only know their one song from Guitar Hero World Tour but it was a lot of fun to play.

That's actually really badass. It isn't a live show at a live club if there is no audience.

I got to know them through Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Their song "Swamped" was the end credits song, and I've liked them ever since

So this was turned out to just be quietly staring at Cristina Scabbia? How is that different from anything else Lacuna Coil has done?

I saw them at a hole-in-the-wall bar in Albany many years ago, probably around the release of Comalies.   There were maybe.. 10 people there.   It still rocked, and the band absolutely kept their spirits up about it.

/Cristina Scabbia is not unattractive

That's why I couldn't get into them. I get the appeal of the "Beauty & The Beast" vocal dynamic but after a while, it's tiresome or just flat-out not done well. Cristina's voice is fine on its own (in my opinion), it doesn't need a male counterpart that often, if at all.

Imagine if Evanescence had that rapping dude (that they had on their breakthrough song) on EVERY tune.

I was trying to watch that yesterday.  I never even got an image of any kind to work.  I figured that having a free online worldwide concert broke the servers and gave up.

I'm still trying to decide what to make of the explanation.

From the headline I assumed subby meant it was their farewell concert.

If you're unfamiliar with their recent albums, I was expecting more of this.

I'd be happy to make their point even stronger.  Since they are going to be so whiney about this temporary (we hope) issue and want so badly to have live shows even though people would get sick, I just won't buy their music on any other media either.  That'll teach me.

There are creative bands right now doing live shows online to paying audiences worldwide, releasing new music, selling merch and making the best of a bad situation.

It isn't the same, and life isn't the same for any one of us.  Give me a break.

I never really saw the big thing about Lacuna Coil until I heard them live. Sure, they were decent and I had some of their albums but they were just another generic band. They're worlds heavier live than on their studio albums and both of the vocalists came across much better live as well, I finally got it when people talked about Cristina Scabbia's voice.
 
2021-02-28 4:32:56 PM  
I've got about a dozen of their songs on my playlists. Their cover of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence is really good.

I think the point of this stunt is to draw attention to the venues themselves.. they can't sell albums or t-shirts or whatever to make money.

I remember the band Semblant was selling special t-shirts to raise money and awareness for the venues.. that seems like the better choice to me.

On the studio albums I agree, but Andrea Feero is a lot harsher with his vocals in person and I liked them a lot more. I know why it is but sometimes the live versions of songs just have more oomph and it works.

Tull's biggest sales successes were definitely hard rock however, so people need to STFU up about Metallica being robbed in the hard rock slash heavy metal category. Wasn't it for Justice anyway? No one should be awarded a prize for anything that badly recorded.

I mean, Tull got a "make -up" Grammy for previous work, which is bullshiat, but something everyone knows the Grammys do. I can't be assed to look, but I'm sure Metallica got a couple make up Grammys of their own later.

I've seen Lacuna Coil twice, but don't remember a single thing about either set.  That should tell you something.  And I don't even drink at concerts.

Judging from your username, perhaps you were busy doing... other things?

Saw them at Ozzfest in 2006.  Italy had won the World Cup earlier in the day, so they were quite hyped.  I don't know how much it affected their performance, but they were a lot of fun.

It was a weird show.  Hatebreed came out and they were spewing a stream of homophobic slurs throughout their mediocre set, and doing it aggressively. Nearly every band after them, but particularly Lacuna Coil, called them out on it.  Must've been fun backstage.

Alphax: I think the point of this stunt is to draw attention to the venues themselves.. they can't sell albums or t-shirts or whatever to make money.


The Ottobar would like a word, also their No Stage Diving compilation albums and T-shirts are bringing in funds.

darch: drewogatory: Leader O'Cola: bhcompy: drewogatory: So, I'm genuinely curious here, what do you consider the first true metal album?

Wagner - Der Ring des Nibelungen, but of course

According to the Recording Academy. It was Stand Up . And we know that if you (and certainly they)  call something metal , it certainly is.

Tull's biggest sales successes were definitely hard rock however, so people need to STFU up about Metallica being robbed in the hard rock slash heavy metal category. Wasn't it for Justice anyway? No one should be awarded a prize for anything that badly recorded.

So... the sound quality of a recording speaks to its total overall worth? Do I have that right? Songwriting, arranging, melody, etc- all secondary to its sonic characteristics?


well, 99.999% of farkers go "cookie monster!!!! LOLZ! it sucks!"   for any metal that doesn't have pretty women singing clean operatic style vocals...so ... you'd have to assume so.
