Coma Void

Stormking Twilight is an album that's hard to categorize. This is the only release by Portland's Coma Void and it's a doozy. It's sometimes death metal, sometimes stoner rock, sometimes sludge. What it is constantly is pure metal with buzzing guitars that seem to soar over the chaos of the double bass and seething vocals. These guys aren't afraid of throwing acoustic passages or clean'er' vocals in the mix either. Coma Void sounds like NO ONE else I can assure you of that. If you've never heard of these guys do yourself a favor and check them out. I haven't seen this posted on any other blog and it's really a shame. With song titles like "Opal Hill Mining Disaster of 1911", "Cave Gimp" and "Crab Witch Head" you can't really go wrong. Oh yeah the last track is not really 20 minutes. Wait for it...wait for it...
