Lacuna Coil has released Chapter III in a series of teaser trailers leading up to the January 24th release of their sixth studio album, Dark Adrenaline. This teaser, entitled “Carnage Euphoria,” is a Kinesis Production directed by Bob Cynar. The clip is in the exploitation style and features a hockey mask-wearing, chainsaw-wielding mad man chasing a supple young pretty thing. Sure it resembles Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but it works. Wonder how Lacuna Coil got the rights to create a hybrid character derived from obvious franchises. The heavy riff and scale-heavy solo sound promising for Dark Adrenaline.
Chapter II, “While You Sleep,” features Andrea Ferro as Dracula, and overacting as usual.
Chapter I, “The Injected,” has Cristina Scabbia experiencing most literally the album’s title (Dark Adrenaline) and cover art as she’s strapped to a chair and being injected with the stuff in a Saw-like environment.
Judging by the music in these trailers, the only way Lacuna Coil could ruin Dark Adrenaline’s potential is if they let Andrea Ferro sing too much — dude is so fucking annoying.
