"What conflict could run so deep that it takes you to the deepest corners of your inner world?" the official press release reads. "Today we are surrounded by a lot of lies, aliases, and people acting like they are wearing an invisible crown - but you better have thick skin if you want to wear this crown!
"'Broken Crown Halo' is a cinematic album that could be the soundtrack of our days - it is a dark vision of a near future when survival is second nature, and failure is not something to be avoided, but rather cultivated with lessons learned along the way."
The latest Lacuna Coil studio effort, "Dark Adrenaline," saw its release in January 2012 via Century Media Records.
