Metal Mornings #4 Lacuna Coil Trip The Darkness. Perspectives. The visuals of this song play on the theme of perspectives. The camera is continually moving between two seeming opposites; a black side and a white side. Yet both sides are connected. It’s the viewers (and band’s) vantage point that dictates which side is the “better” side at any given moment. However that perspective is constantly shifting, from the cord changes and drum tempo, to the clothing and lighting. Its not static. I adore this song. Cristina Scabbia’s voice and aesthetic are singular in metal, and frankly, in popular music.
Happy Friday, Aleksa.
