Lacuna Coil live in Athens 2017


Italians Sinheresy, opened the show and in the dark, because of the figure she cut, tall and thin, I mistook their singer for Elina Laivera (a Greek female singer that has relocated in Germany, which I found odd)… ehm, soon I conferred they were Italians and their style is a mix of mid-era Nightwish and early Lacuna Coil, sort of contemporary rock, with female vocals that doesn’t go too often into symphonic territory. They did lack cohesion and stagecraft and were at best OK, with their entire presence there feeling a bit awkward. Well time and tours will make em or break them, but they really failed to leave a lasting impression.
