Valerie Bastien, a contributing editor to The Voice Connection and RockSource360, recently conducted an interview with vocalist Andrea Ferro of Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL. The chat is now available for streaming using the audio player below.
LACUNA COIL was honored in the "Best Editing" category at the "Premio Videoclip Italiano" ceremony (Italian Videoclip Awards) on December 11 in Milan. Singers Ferro and Cristina Scabbia accepted the award for the "Spellbound" clip, which was shot at the Dolce & Gabbana Gold restaurant in the band's hometown of Milan with director Saku. It was produced by Apnea Film and the wardrobe was provided by Dolce & Gabbana.
Commented Scabbia: "We had a great time shooting the video for 'Spellbound' and it also mark[ed] our first time working with acclaimed Italian director Saku in a location that's really peculiar. It was filmed in a very fashionable place: the restaurant Gold located in Milan, Italy, which owned by the fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana, who kindly gave us the permission to film over there! The location provide[d] the perfect atmosphere to express the 'Shallow Life' theme. Everything is really shiny and 'bling bling' and the band is performing in the middle of a golden room full of mirrors and giant chandeliers. The story [was] rounded out by some actors that are interpreting different aspects of being under a spell of something: the girl obsessed by her weight and look, the guy who wants to be a superman, the politician etc."
