Music industry veterans Lacuna Coil return October 11th with a new release “Black Anima” and the Italian band gave us a sneak peak with the music video for ” Layer of Time ” which is the first single off of the record .
The imagery of ” Layers of Time ” seems set in the post dystopian future combined with a feel of a gothic coven . I honestly have never been a fan fan of screamo bands that do not have singers but Lacuna Coils mix of dirty vocals and the beauty of Cristina Scabbia ‘s voice and lyrics is a perfect combination dark and light , of beauty and the beast .
One of my favorites parts of this song is you hear the entire band . The bass guitar is featured prominently in the mix and the chorus combination is very powerful .
The bridge is unique and showcases the extreme talent of the band . Please make sure you check it out .
The current band consists of Andrea Ferro — male vocals (1994–present)
Marco Coti Zelati — bass, keyboards (1994–present), guitars (2015–2016)
Cristina Scabbia — female vocals (1996–present)
Diego “Didi” Cavalotti — guitars (2016–present)
Richard Meiz — drums (2019–present)
They are currently on tour in Europe and start in the US in mid September to learn all things about Lacuna Coil please see the official website at https://www.lacunacoil.com/

Today we have the honor of highlighting extraordinaire bass guitar player Marten Andersson of the rock group Steelheart. I first became aware of Marten about a decade ago when he was playing with the band Lizzy Borden . Marten is a native of Stockholm ,Sweden but made his way across to pond to play rock n’ roll and is doing quite well at it . In addition to the previously listed bands he also performed with George Lynch in the band Lynch Mob .
Never one to shirk a challenge he is also co-founder of From Classic To Rock which is an event that raises funds for arts programs in the school and it combines rock stars and classical musicians .
Marten is currently on tour in South Korea with Steelheart and I am sure he will be a great music ambassador overseas as well.
To find out all that Marten is doing please see his official website at http://www.marten.cc
A legend that must be seen to be believed !
Cleveland, Ohio- The Ace is back, to quote the hit song ” Rock Soldiers”. The legendary guitarist and founding member of the super group KISS returned to Cleveland this last weekend to the delight of many a rock fan.The capacity crowd featured fans from as young as 13 to as old as 70 and everything in between . Something about Ace just touches us, maybe with his public imperfections of which he writes songs about that the fans can relate to. Maybe it is just the fact that he is a living legend and he has awesome songs either way the packed house was in for a night of fun .
The night opened with ” Rip It Out ” and the roar of the crowd competing with the guitar amplifiers to see who was louder and the guitars won. Up next was ” Parasite ” and continued with almost 90 minutes of hit songs .
Some of my favorites were ” New York Groove ” , ” Shock Me” and ” Mission To Mars ” I was a little surprised by the inclusion of the Eddie Money song ” I Wanna Go Back ” but it was a pleasant surprise .
I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Ace a few years ago for The Hard Rock for a couple of hours. I found him to be a genuine person and all around nice guy that enjoys listing to the stories of his fans and getting to meet them .
Aces back up band were amazing musicians in their own right and included Philip Shouse on bass guitar, Ryan Cook on guitar , Jeremy Asbrock on guitar and Matt Starr on drum . Direct support was a pleasant surprise with the inclusion of the band ” Like It ” I will be doing a full review of them separately .
