After returning from a triumphant run throughout South America and right before embarking on some shows with their labelmates Arch Enemy and The Haunted, Italian gothic metal act Lacuna Coil are releasing a new video for one of their crowd favorite tracks, “Blood, Tears, Dust”. The video was directed and edited by Cosimo Alemà and produced by the production company Borotalco.
Frontwoman Cristina Scabbia said about the video: “Right now I can’t tell you everything about ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’, as this video is part of something bigger… This is the core of who we are as a band: the sweat, the dirt, the raw energy. It’s our insanity and all of us feeling comfortable with it. I love how by Cosimo Alemà filmed this. The photography, the colors and the hints in the story are perfectly placed and it is the first time we are really ‘acting’. This video is only a part of a much bigger plan… stay tuned. Hope you enjoy this video as much as I do!”
Fresh, dark and extremely powerful are only a few of the best ways to accurately describe Lacuna Coil’s latest opus “Delirium”, which features “Blood, Tears, Dust.” The album, which was released May of last year, came out to exceptional critical appraisal and represent the true apex of modern gothic metal. The record encompasses the strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the 90’s twisted with goth elements into a modern style.
