Though my deep and dark descent into the Polish rock music scene has only recently begun, I know well enough that COMA is a band that should be included in one’s vernacular and most definitely one to see live. Being from Seattle, COMA speaks to me on a spiritual level. If The Deftones and Alice in Chains had a love child, these guys would be it. Don’t let frontman’s Piotr Rogucki’s image fool you. He may look like a man you’d spot on the streets of Venice, espresso and Marlboro Gold in hand, but fueled by guitar heavy tracks and hard hitting drums, his vocals are rock and roll in its purest form.
The band has released a total of 13 albums, 2 of which are English albums should you be interested, and has embarked on a nation wide tour to promote their latest release, Metal Ballads vol. 1. You’d think the name speaks for itself, but the band has veered in a refreshingly experimental direction, with their single “Lajki” or “Likes” reminiscent of the Scissor Sisters with just the right amount of edge any rock fiend desires.
The band will perform with supporting act, RELOAD, a hard rock group which hails from Nuremberg, Germany. Check out their live performance in Warsaw here:
