CRISTINA SCABBIA Is 'Not Afraid' Of Possible Terrorist Attack At LACUNA COIL Concert

Greece's recently conducted an interview with singer Cristina Scabbia of Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked if the spate of recent concert terrorist attacks — including those in Las Vegas, Manchester and Paris — have affected the way she approaches her live performances, Cristina said: "To be honest, I am so focused on the stage and the crowd coming to show that I don't think about it. I think this is the goal of the people who want to create chaos — they want us to be in fear.

"It's really horrible, because no one in a million years would have thought that music or a concert could be connected with a terrorist attack," she continued. "This is the thing that weirded everything out, because terrorist attacks are horrible [in and of themselves] but [even more so when] connected to a moment where people should [be] more connected than ever and having a good time and sharing good vibes. This is unbelievable; it's hard to believe, for sure, that something like that could happen."

Cristina added: "So, I am not afraid, and not because I wanna be cocky, but I'm very… I don't know if the word in English is correct, but I'm very fatalist — I know that my life could end in any moment, so I want to enjoy every second, I want to try to spread positive energy around me and try to make whoever comes to the show feel good, to whoever I talk to to feel good. So I don't think about what could happen, because I can't read into the future. Hopefully nothing like that will happen again — not only at a concert, but ever."

LACUNA COIL celebrated the 20th anniversary of its debut by playing a very special show, dubbed "Nothing Stands In Our Way", on January 19 at London, England's O2 Forum Kentish Town. The unique extravaganza, which included visual effects, circus artists and enhanced stage production, was professionally filmed and recorded for future release.

LACUNA COIL is working on its first-ever book, also titled "Nothing Stands In Our Way", which is scheduled to be published later in the year.

Co-singer Andrea Ferro told the Impact metal channel last year that LACUNA COIL fans will have to wait until at least 2019 for the follow-up to 2016's "Delirium" album.
