Tracing a straight line between Tori Amos, post-hardcore dudes Scary Kids Scaring Kids, punk act Craig's Brother, and goth metal six-piece Lacuna Coil would seem like a pretty futile endeavor. Thanks to Lacuna Coil's Dark Adrenaline — the sixth full-length from the Milan, Italy-based metal band — drawing a connection becomes easy: Each of those artists has covered R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion." Coil's version is archetypical for this band, with its mid-paced, über-polished recording, and switch-offs between lighter and darker elements (misty-eyed keyboards juxtapose gnashing guitars, and Cristina Scabbia's comely vocals counteract Andrea Ferro's scowls and shouts). Scabbia has boasted that Dark Adrenaline is "the victorious sum of 15 years of experiences," so if you're in the market for theater-screen-sized metal that goes down easy and isn't really all that dark, give it a whirl.
