Swedish power metallers Sabaton are back doing what they do best. Being known for their main lyrical themes of war, historical battles and events, their new ninth album ‘The Great War’ doesn’t disappoint. This time they dive into the bloody and gloomy atmosphere of World War I which took place during 1914-1918.

Opening song ‘The Future Of Warware’ is symphonic, massive and epic in every detail, aided especially by soaring skilled guitar work. It is a grand way to start which is all-consuming and sets the scene wonderfully as well as displaying power metal as it should be…

Italian Metal icons LACUNA COIL are excited to announce the release of their new album “Black Anima” on October 11th, 2019, worldwide through Century Media Records.

“Black Anima is all of us.
It’s you and it’s me, it’s everything we hide and fiercely expose to a world that’s halfway asleep.
It is the fogged mirror we are peering into searching for the truth.
It’s sacrifice and pain, it’s justice and fear, it’s fury and revenge, it’s past and future….
Human beings in the magnificence of a disturbing ambiguity.
The black core that balances it all… as without darkness light would never exist.
We proudly present to you our new work and can’t wait to welcome you in our embrace.
We are the Anima.” – Cristina Scabbia, LACUNA COIL.

“Black Anima” is the follow up to LACUNA COIL’s “Delirium” (2016), which entered the charts in the US (#16 Current Album Chart, #2 Hard Rock Chart) and all over Europe and “THE 119 SHOW – LIVE IN LONDON”, which was released in late 2018 to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary.

Stay tuned for more news, soon!

LACUNA COIL will be playing some more festival show in summer and will be on extended European tour together with Swiss Folk Metal band Eluveitie and their friends in Infected Rain.
