Co-vocalist Andrea Ferro of the Italian rock/metal band LACUNA COIL recently spoke to Revolver magazine about the group’s forthcoming album, “Dark Adrenaline”, which is scheduled for release in October via Century Media Records.
On the topic of the sound of the new CD, Ferro said, “We have different kinds of songs — some are pretty heavy with a really powerful groove and some killer riffs, some have a darker vibe a bit more in our traditional style, and some others are more anthemic. In my opinion, it’s a great collection of metal and rock songs.”
When asked if the band is trying anything different with the material this time around, Ferro said, “There’s a variety of moods; some things which are new, and some which sound like more traditional LACUNA COIL. We were experimenting with the previous album and we learned a lot from that about what is the essence of our ‘sound.’ We usually never repeat the same record, and that will again be the case this time around. It’s 100 percent a LACUNA COIL album, with the benefit of some great inspiration during the songwriting process.”
Regarding the band’s renewed collaboration with producer Don Gilmore (PEARL JAM, LINKIN PARK, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE), Ferro said, “After you’ve spent a few months constantly working on the songs, it’s important to have someone like Don come in and give you a sincere opinion of the songs. He is helping us in keeping things fresh, and getting our sound together for 2011. Most of the songs haven’t really changed in essence, but he is really good at outlining the most important and interesting details of the music and the lyrics. He also creates a really great vibe while recording.”
