Recently, LACUNA COIL treated fans to the official lyric video for their newly announced single, “Never Dawn.” The song beautifully encapsulates the band’s distinctive style, featuring haunting melodies, powerful guitar riffs, and the mesmerizing vocal harmonies of Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro. “Never Dawn” explores profound themes such as resilience, inner strength, and the eternal struggle between light and darkness, delving deep into the human spirit.
In a unique collaboration, LACUNA COIL joined forces with CMON, the renowned board game publisher behind the popular game “Zombicide.” The song “Never Dawn” has found its way into CMON‘s latest Kickstarter project, “Zombicide: White Death,” initially featured as an instrumental version in a campaign trailer. This exciting game expansion introduces players to fresh characters, mechanics, and challenges to overcome, providing an immersive gaming experience. Additionally, the “White Death” version includes five limited-edition survivor tokens, specially inspired by LACUNA COIL‘s captivating artistry.
Cristina comments on the new song: “First presented, in its instrumental version, in the trailer for Zombicide White Death game, and then in its live version, during our last sold-out show in L.A., we’re so incredibly thrilled to finally unveil the full version of ‘Never Dawn’! This song is a fierce survival journey throughout grotesque and frozen lands, where the power within is the main weapon. Ignite the fire in your heart and enjoy the listening!”
“Zombicide: White Death” is the brainchild of Nicolas Raoult, one of the masterminds behind the original “Zombicide,” who collaborated with Jean-Baptiste Lullien and Raphaël Guiton to bring this thrilling sequel to life. Building on the success of the fantasy spinoff version of “Zombicide,” this new installment takes on a chilling wintery theme, promising a fresh and exciting gaming experience.
As the third chapter in this esteemed series, “Zombicide: White Death” follows the footsteps of its predecessors. The journey began with “Zombicide: Black Plague” in 2016, introducing players to an innovative concept, and was followed by “Zombicide Green Horde” in 2018, which further enriched the immersive gameplay. Now, with “Zombicide: White Death,” the saga continues, delivering new challenges and adventures for enthusiastic fans of the franchise.
