It’s always a real pleasure to be able to assist a band that are on the verge of greatness. Poland’s Coma are one such act. Since 1998 the five-piece have been working hard at their craft and that determination is now paying off big time.
With several ‘Fryderk Awards’ (think our Brit Awards) under their belts, support spots for the likes of Pearl Jam, Tool and Link Park and that all important dedication to live perofrmance (over 100 gigs per year).
New album ‘Don’t Set Your Dogs On Me’ see’s Coma at their very best production and creativity wise. The 13 songs on offer here take us on a musical journey through the bands personal demons, feelings and life experiences.
What Coma do best is defy the limitations of heavy rock and present their listeners with music that tells a story, which sees some tracks head down the melodic route and others take a more straight forward rock approach. If this album is anything to 2013 will be the year that these five men from Lodz (Poland) take those first steps to global success.
