Coma Hole: Has produced a beautifully raw and authentic debut.

Coma Hole – Coma Hole

Westerly is an American city located in Washington County, Rhode Island. From that town the band comes the band Coma Hole, a two piece drum and bass duo from Southern RI, cranking out desert rock/stoner rock/doom metal.

Coma Hole  are determined to make an impact with their debut EP both musically, drawing from a plethora of genres, and lyrically tackling face on darker aspects of life. The commanding drum and bass duo fuse doom, stoner and 80s/90s grunge styles into their compelling sound. The track Old Climb,

«We are beyond stoked to be releasing our debut EP Coma Hole in late Spring of 2022. We’ve diligently worked on carving our own sound over the past three years, attempting to traverse through upbeat grooves, aggressive high-energy riffage, and incorporate some droning, heavily hypnotic melodies. The album focuses on the existential struggle of self-worth, identity, and mortality, which is all woven tightly together through natural archetypes in the lyrical wordplay as well as the cover art.

As only two people, we are a small band trying to craft a big sound and aspire to blend our dynamic and style seamlessly with our lyrical themes. Steve and I hope this collection of recordings hits every mark on the musical spectrum and is as enjoyable to listen to for others as it was for us to create it».

Drawing on an internal sense of self-sabotage and struggles to overcome it, The Familiar is an intense track and the inspiration for the cover art. Emerging through an eerie drone soundscape, Coma Hole creates a sense of vastness. Soaring vocals, heavy fuzz and dramatic percussion break out into a powerful groove. Driving rhythms energize Old Climb emphasizing a sense of desperation repeating the same things over again and expecting a different result.

Dark, descending riffs aptly portrays the exploration of mortality and our timely return through decay into the natural order of life in Wind And Bone. Stunning vocal melodies and harmonies introduce a beautiful contradiction of tones alongside the heaviness. Sinking brings the release almost to a cyclical end returning to ideas of isolation involved in The Familiar, before diverging to deliver a positive tone and sense of achievement for overcoming these harsh struggles.

Coma Hole has produced a beautifully raw and authentic debut. The EP immerses into the very depths of the darkest emotions human beings can endure but also celebrates the strength to keep going and passage to recovery.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6841 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
