Coma (11)

Profile:
The band came into existence in June 1998. The name - Coma - was chosen accidentally. They tossed a coin to decide because they had an appointment for an interview in Radio. During their first rehearsals they named the band Voo Doo Art, but it didn't catch on. The band started off with Dominik Weed Chuck on guitar and Tomasz Stasiak on drums. They had played together earlier in a band enigmatically called Ozoz. After Ozoz had fallen apart Weed Chuck - Stasiak team tried to form a band which would play music inspired by Illusion, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Korn, etc. Yet finding a bass player turned out to be problematic. However they tried they didn't get along with any of the candidates for this honourable post. They had to wait quite a long time for God to send them Rafal Ma Touch who apart from being a pretty good musician and partygoer turned out to live 300m from Weed Chuck. The three guys were fascinated with one another. They had rehearsals a few times a week. Dominik, Tomasz and Rafal made up their minds to rock together until their dying day, and then they cut their veins and... sealed their decision with blood. In this way the hybrid was created and functioned under the name "Voo Doo Art". The next to join the band was Grenda, whom Dominik and Tomasz knew from Ozoz. After they welcomed him warmly, their friendship developed very quickly. To complete the picture, guys needed someone who could sing. But here their expectations were sky high. Stasiak, Weed Chuck and Grenda had once played with Unczur, a girl who sung better than most of the vocalists you could hear on the radio. The gentlemen infected with her superb voice could only choose someone who sung at least as well as she did, or better. God showed mercy one more time. Ma Touch along with Weed Chuck apart from playing in Voo Doo Art performed with another band - De Ja Vi (guitar+bass+3 girls on vocals). De Ja Vi's rehearsals took place in the building owned by scout troop where one person, a scout, appeared very often. It was Peter Raw Goose Rogucki. They were bound to meet. Our musicians thought that it would be worth trying to take the young talented vocalist. Here we skip the fact that these three gentlemen knew each other from college. Most probably it didn't occur to them then that they would ever play in one band. After the first rehearsal with raw Goose, the choice proved to be the best possible. Long months of struggling with compositions followed. Guys drank many different alcoholic beverages that helped to tighten cooperation within the band. Everything seemed to head in a good direction. And suddenly after years of plenty a very unpleasant "situation" took place. As a result Grenda was dismissed from the band. Fortunately replacement for him was found very quickly. Martin Cobez joined the band. He was known at that time as an excellent guitarist and played with groups such as Pig Bit or Second Hand. He fit in perfectly. By the end of 2003 Coma signed a contract with BMG, and started recording their debut album right away. The recording sessions started in November and lasted until January 2004.Toiled by the sweat of their brows, worthy of sacrifice, the material which contained a dozen or so tracks finally found its way to music shops on 17th May 2004. As it turned out fans noticed and appreciated Coma's hard work what was very visible during concerts which drew huge audiences. Those concerts were organized by the new manager of Coma - Robert Kurpisz. In 2007 Coma supported such bands as Linkin Park, Pearl Jam and Tool. In spring 2008 Adam Von Marshal Marshalkowsky, known from another band - Normalsi, took place of Tomasz Stasiak on drums and participated actively in writing of new tracks. Between April 2009 and May 2010 all of the compositions were recorded, and they were released as "Excess" on 11 of October 2010 in whole Europe and in United States.
