There are at least 262 active and in active and established metal band from Philippines. One of them are the death metal band Comatose. The band was founded in 2003 and released recently their second full lengths The Ungodly Lamentations. Although full lengths are somewhat misleading with a playing time of just 28:15 minutes. The lyrics deals often with Satanism, death, war, anti-religion and dark history. The band is from Cebu City which is the oldest city in the Philippines, and has a large harbor. Cebu City is the harbor for the band Comatose.
Comatose was form in in the mid of 2003 as a college band and was originally named Church Burner. Back then the band played most cover songs of Hypocrisy. Obviously, the desire to make their own music quickly came, and already in 2004 came a demo with self-produced songs. The new album is with a new line-up, and LD Bellz Lee has become lead singer but he also plays guitar. He is joined by three new musicians, guitarist Milojan Mondejar, bassist Surge Inso from Black Mantraand drummer Kyndall Cesar from Astarus.
The song Forever Reign Supreme sums up much of Comatose,
Comatose offers a furious and brutal, raw and devilish death metal with howling and almost bestial vocals. The drums are thunderous, and the mood is set by some violent guitar solos.
