Lacuna Coil (1998)
Lacuna is definitely not the first band that has started with an EP. Financial problems or what, but anyway, the self-titled extended play was released more than a year before the first full-length album In A Reverie. Well, I have to confess: those 6 songs (one of which is a good instrumental) made me fall in love with the band some years ago. Comalies and Karmacode didn’t impress me at that time, but this one.. mmm! The songs are beautiful, melodic, emotional and even bad quality of recording doesn’t spoil them. This debut EP is definitely one of the absolute successes of the band.
