Via the Lacuna Coil Facebook:

Dear friends,

It is with a heavy heart that we share this news with you today: Our two brothers Cris ‘Pizza’ Migliore and Cristiano ‘CriZ’ Mozzati have decided to retire from LACUNA COIL.

Both Pizza and CriZ have had big changes impact their lives recently – we know how stressful and difficult it can be to balance both real life and the life of a professional touring musician, and we have nothing but total respect for their decisions to focus on their families and lives at home.

We have such incredible memories of traveling and exploring the world together with Pizza and CriZ, and we want to wish them both all the best as they begin these exciting new chapters in their lives. We will never forget the important roles they played in this band, or the incredible times we shared together.

THANK YOU PIZZA AND CRIZ! WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!

Cristina, Andrea, Marco, and Maus.
LACUNA COIL

Protest, Preach, Kill, Escape or “Just Rock”?

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 at 10:22 PM (PST)

Let’s talk about reasons for rocking. Some bands wanna party and meet people to screw. Some want flying unicorns to befriend them on a castle facing a cliff made of diamonds. Some bands want to “just rock” and make people happy. Some want to further social change. Some bands want to sing “Worm Infested” and make you envision horribly rotten corpses of victims. IS one path better than the other or more “legit”/true?

Can music still change the world?

The following is a micro-study of metal motivations. Click HERE for more.
