Marco Zelati/ Lacuna Coil
- EMG Gear/
Marco Zelati is the bass guitarist for the Italian rock band Lacuna Coil. Lacuna formed in from Milan Italy, 1994. Formerly known as Sleep of Right and Ethereal, the band was inspired by the combination of gothic imagery and music, and the members have been known, musically, for composing midtempo songs consisting of guitar lines overlaid with prominent keyboard work, and contrasting dual female/male vocal harmonies to help create a melodic detached sound. Much of the band's recent material, however, sees a heavier and more down-tuned style, featuring a more distinct bass line and a higher mixing of the guitars within the songs.
The band's 2006 release, "Karmacode" peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200. They have played among the world's biggest heavy metal festivals on the main stage including Ozzfest, Bloodstock Open Air, Wacken Open Air, and played with Megadeth on their Gigantour tour in 2007, and alongside Disturbed and Killswitch Engage on the Music as a Weapon Tour 2009 in support of thier newest release "Shallow Life" on Century Media Records.
