Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil), a militant singer


Female metal vocalists have their own particular charm. Cristina Scabbia came first in the “Hottest Chicks in Metal” contest, but I wanted to meet Radio Metal’s Miss December less than I wanted to talk to the militant lady, committed to PETA, who also happens to need a daily “cat fix”.

A lady who also can’t resist food, like all Milanese – and a good thing it is, too, because I do love the authenticity of Italian cuisine.

THE REALITY OF MUSIC INSPIRES NOTHING BUT PESSIMISM TO ARJEN LUCASSEN


In his new solo album, Lost In The New Real, Arjen Lucassen tells the story of Mr. L, who, after spending several centuries in a coma, needs psychological help to adapt to and understand the changes society has gone through during his sleep. On his own admission, Arjen Lucassen identifies himself a bit to this character and considers himself a stranger in this reality. The man doesn’t go out much, watch the news or spend money; he doesn’t even like touring or reading! Arjen confesses to having sometimes been caught up in reality, with over-produced albums like 01011001 – hence his desire, with this solo album, to be more “transparent”, just like on his album The Electric Castle. A truly nostalgic and intimate album.

More specifically, the reality of the music industry, without scaring him, leads him to think that it will soon become impossible to make a living with music. In concrete terms, Arjen details his own financial situation, still more than decent, but which prevents him from planning as ambitious a new Ayreon album as the previous ones.

Let’s take stock with this long conversation with a man as humble and pleasant as ever.
