"The magazine has been so grace me with the first cover ever with a female artist and I am very grateful for this. "I don't consider myself 'hot.' "I have my up and downs and surely don't look at myself in the mirror contemplating the (non-existing) 'perfection.' "That said, when I see polls or even 'contests' in between people (fans of different bands) about 'which one is the hottest chick in metal or rock,' I feel glad to be included but I also...kinda feel like puking a bit. "How can you say a person is 'hot' or not? Based on (the generic idea of) beauty? "'Hot,' at least in my world and referred to a person, means someone who can be good looking (according to my personal taste so it doesn't have to be universal) that has an interesting personality as well. "In my life, I met super-good-looking guys that were as interesting and hot as a clam shell, therefore the 'hot factor' was not there at all, not even a chance. "So the question (and I wait for your answers to see what you guys think of it, I am very interested) is: how can you know someone's personality if you don't personally know this person and say this human being is hot? "Can really a static picture only make you think a person is 'hot'?" "Broken Crown Halo" will be released in North America on April 1 (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded Italy by producer Jay Baumgardner (P.O.D., SEVENDUST, EVANESCENCE, PAPA ROACH) and engineer Kyle Hoffmann (P.O.D., BUSH, ZEBRAHEAD). The effort was mastered by Howie Weinberg, whose credits include RAMMSTEIN, SOUNDGARDEN, NIRVANA, DEFTONES and SHERYL CROW. "Broken Crown Halo" is LACUNA COIL's seventh studio effort, and the highly-anticipated follow-up to "Dark Adrenaline", which was released in January 2012 and saw the band tour with acts including MEGADETH, MOTÖRHEAD, VOLBEAT and SEVENDUST after debuting at No. 15 on The Billboard 200 album chart.
