Critical reception[edit]

Axl Rosenberg of Metal Sucks said that "Layers of Time," suggests that the album won’t be anticlimactic." then added, "It’s every bit as catchy as anything the band has ever released, sure, but catchy is where Lacuna Coil live. What sets the track apart from other entries in the Coil catalogue is its heaviness."[4]

Music video[edit]

A music video directed by Robert "SaKu" Cinardi was released alongside the song on July 26th.[3][5] It was shot inside a rural palace called Villa Arconati located in Bollate, a commune in Lombardy, a region of Italy.
