Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil Talks Family and Personal Connection to Mental Illness on The MetalSucks Podcast #148


The MetalSucks Podcast with Chuck and Godless / JabberjawCristina Scabbia, lead singer for Lacuna Coil, guests this week to talk about the band’s new album Delirium, their eighth studio album over a 20-plus year career and the first to be totally self-produced. Cristina talks about relationships between band members, experiences with past producers and the pressures the band has been under leading up the album’s release. She talks about where the lyrical themes on this album stem from, some metaphorical and others from her personal relationship with mental illness.

Chuck and Godless discuss a very common word that we may or may not need to take out of our vocabulary (especially as Chuck is “blank” for Nails). We examine how the botched launch of Prophets of Rage turned our internet feeds into a frenzy of activity, but for the wrong reasons. Did Rage Against the Machine control their message in the wrong way, or did they simply underestimate the appetite for a reunion? Zach de la Rocha may be having the last laugh, until he hears our idea for the one dude on earth who would be more interesting and would draw bigger crowds.
