The song Swamped was used in the video game "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines".
The band formed as Sleep of Right in 1994, but soon changed their name to Ethereal, and were signed by Century Media at the end of 1997. Finding that the name Ethereal was already taken, they settled instead on Lacuna Coil (meaning something like "empty spiral": "lacuna" meaning lack of memory or emptiness, "Coil" meaning spiral).
