Italy’s Lacuna Coil combine heavy metal, alternative music and gothic rock into a very unique sound, with Cristina Scabbia leading the charge as the co-singer of the band.

Her voice helps make this band so unique as it intertwines with her male partner-in-crime Andrea Ferro’s gruff voice to bring an intriguing dynamic to the music. It can be thought of in context of death metal and metalcore bands where the singer alternates between good cop/bad cop vocals, but here Lacuna Coil focus on the greatest quality with this dynamic. Scabbia’s voice brings a calmer, more ethereal mood to the music to bring the listener at ease before the more aggressive aspects come into play.
