Yep, fool me once... after the bullshit years ago with Zane and everyone warning not to do business with them, I fell for it because they (supposedly) had something I wanted. Fuckers.

I was looking for the Lacuna Coil box set, and they were the only domestic U.S. source I could find that SUPPOSEDLY had them in stock, and at a not inzane price too, $72.99. So I placed an order on July 9 for that and two 5-CD sets, Therion and Angra.

July 23, I still hadn't received any notification that my order had shipped, so I emailed them:

Checking on status of this order, paid 2 weeks ago. Thank you. -Dan

July 24, I get a reply:

Hi,

We are an international company.  Part of your order is in Minneapolis and part is in transit from our Berlin branch.

We'll make sure your order ships immediately beings it sounds like you need this in a hurry.  Any portion that may not ship we'll supply a refund.

Thanks for contacting us.  All orders are secure with us.

In retrospect, the wording of that should have set off alarm bells. I immediately reply:

No worries and no hurry. I just hadn't heard anything in 2 weeks, so I wasn't sure if part of the order was backordered or not. Thank you, -Dan

That same day I get two emails, one saying my order had been processed, and the other saying my order had been completed.

I receive the package, and it feels awfully light. It only had the two 5-CD sets in it. No Lacuna Coil box. Nothing in the box saying backorder or anything, no email communication about the box set. I figure that it might be coming separately so I give it time...

Yesterday I got tired of waiting so I email an inquiry:

I received only 2 of the 3 items in my order. Still missing the Lacuna Coil box set. -Dan

Today I get a reply:

Hi,

Sorry for the delay, like we mentioned on July 24th below, we are an international company and transit times between warehouses takes us a little longer for some items, but we have all the rarities so people usually don't mind waiting.

The Lacuna Coil set was still in transit so we've refunded you.  We have 9 coming.  Please reorder IF you would like one of these in the future.  We always offer FREE SHIPPING, even on 1 items so we have hundreds of thousands of customer keeping us busy.  We'd like to serve you again in the future...

Well, that's complete bullshit, both what they did and the claim of hundreds of thousands of customers. But ok, I go to the website immediately... no Lacuna Coil box set on the website. I email:

Well I do want the box set, but it's no longer available on the website to reorder. Will you honor the same price I originally ordered it at?

Thank you.

-Dan

I get a reply this evening:

Hi Dan,

All 9 sets sold this afternoon at 1pm.  When we get more in, we'll put them back in our catalog.  Depending on the price we have to pay to bring these in dictates what we can sell them for.  I see we'll have 1 set coming in on September 9th from Austria.  That one wholesale cost us $185.00.  The price will probably be about $230-$250 once shipping is added on.  We'll place it in our catalog once tracking is confirmed...

Fucking liars. It never was on the website (I doubt they ever had 9 units come in), and they expect me to pay three times what I originally ordered it for? I believe that they saw the lack of availability elsewhere and simply didn't want to honor the price I bought it at so they could jack it up.

My final reply:

You canceled my order only days before supposedly getting restocked, without my asking for the order to be canceled, just inquiring where it was, and now you say you magically got 9 units in without it ever appearing on the website, and that if you get one will cost me THREE TIMES what I had it ordered for?

That's fucking bullshit. You're a bunch of scammers. You just didn't want to honor the price I ordered it for.

Delete my account. I never want to order from you assholes again.

Warning to everyone: Don't be an idiot like me and ever order from these scammers. Fuck 'em in the ear.

-Dan

Fuck them in the ear? Just like where Geoff likes it? Wait... is Geoff an asshole, too? My whole world has been rocked.

After lamenting not being able to get the Lacuna Coil boxed set for $72.99 from these assholes, one showed up last week on eBay with a $40 Buy-It-Now.

Just arrived today... gem mint condition with individually numbered insert still included.

Sometimes karma comes full circle.

    • Just as a bonus, another song that has a similar theme to All new generation is this. Originally by Big Bang Babies and later covered by Pretty Boy Floyd when Keri was a member. I actually saw PBF play in London during this time, and was right down at the front and shouted for them to play this song and Keri looked straight at me and said "thanks man, that means a lot to me" ha ha  
    • Seize the day is my fave song by them.
    • There's some stuff on that album I do like a lot.....Cold Star Dancer (the song) is probably my 2nd favorite song they've done behind Got It Bad.  I also really like Kiss of Fire, Goodbye and Seize the Day.  I've just struggled getting into some of the other songs on it for some reason though.  I think maybe it was maybe missing some catchy/memorable choruses in spots.  I did like the slightly more modern and heavier, bass-driven direction they started going in on that album with many songs and seems like that's the direction this new album will go based upon the songs so far. Well see.  Really looking forward to this and Kissin' Dynamite in the near future!      
    • New song 'Radio Ga Ga' (Queen cover) from the deluxe edition of 'Fight In Me'.    
    • Ordered this from the band,hopefully here soon.
    • See for me, Cold star dancer is their best work. Everything else is great, but nothing comes close to that album for me.
    • Really looking forward to this album dropping this week!  Have loved the 3 singles so far. I kind of feel like this band sort of peaked for me with Big Red album.  Then Cold Star Dancer, while still pretty decent, was a little bit of a step down from what had come before it and Ethereality was a further step down.  Don't get me wrong, both of those albums still had some good moments but songs and/or weaker production/mix kind of put those albums well behind the first two for me.   Based upon the 3 new songs so far though and the snippet of Puppet Show I've heard on their FB page, it's sounding to me like they might have dialed things in and gotten back on track with this new one.  And this time the production does sound great and is standing out as a positive to me.    Have seen a few reviews and all have been pretty good so far.  Here's one....
