Italian hard rock/metal band Lacuna Coil will revisit its 2002 album, Comalies, for a special 20th anniversary revisiting on Oct. 14.

For this new release, though, the band sought something more than a regular “re-recording” of the original album, which was released to acclaim from fans and the hard rock/metal community alike.

Comalies XX saw the band — Cristina Scabbia (vocals), Andrea Ferro (vocals), Marco “Maki” Coti-Zelati (guitars , bass guitar, keyboards & synths), Diego “DD” Cavallotti (guitars), and Richard Meiz (drums) — deconstruct and rebuild the album’s 13 songs.

As a preview, the band shared a video for “Tight Rope XX”:

For comparison’s sake, here’s the original Comalies version of “Tight Rope”:

Said Lacuna Coil of the new project:

“Welcome to ‘Comalies XX’, a brand-new record. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘Comalies’, we felt this special album deserved more than a remastering. We didn’t just give it a new dress, we built a new skeleton and gave it new skin and a new life. ‘Comalies XX’ is alive and walks alone, this is not a remake or a reboot, it’s ‘Comalies’ on steroids! ‘Tight Rope XX’ and its video are just a taste of what’s coming, and we couldn’t be more proud.”

The Comalies XX track listing:

1. “Swamped XX”
2. “Heaven’s a Lie XX”
3. “Daylight Dancer XX”
4. “Humane XX”
5. “Self Deception XX”
6. “Aeon XX”
7. “Tight Rope XX” 3:38
8. “The Ghost Woman and the Hunter XX”
9. “Unspoken XX”
10. “Entwined XX”
11. “The Prophet Said XX”
12. “Angel’s Punishment XX”
13. “Comalies XX”

To date, Lacuna Coil has released nine studio albums, the most recent being 2019’s Black Anima.
