Outburn (US): "LACUNA COIL knocks one out of the park with Dark Adrenaline... it is an album without filler and one for which start to finish spins are mandatory."
Kerrang! (UK): "It's as if they've taken all the best bits of Lacuna Coil and ratcheted each one up a notch."
LACUNA COIL's native Italy is excited:
Metal Hammer (I): "The 12 songs of Dark Adrenaline are all tied by an explicit "desire for metal", especially in the use of the two guitars by Maus and Cristiano, like we haven't heard in a while in the Lacuna Coil camp. ...Their coming of age album? Evidently yes."
Rock Hard (I): "Their sound has become unique. Their personality and charisma are exemplary."
XL (I): "Dark Adrenaline is an album of extremes: more powerful and more melodic, and Cristina never sounded so strong and eloquent. We are proud of them."
