Soma Coma - Rehearsal Tape
Review by Brayden Bagnall
For Fans Of: Die Kreuzen, Meth Sores, Oily Boys, Youth Korps, Flesh World, Eat A Brick
Soma Coma have a brand spankin' new LP out, and while I'm itching to hear it I'm yet to get my grubby little hands on a copy, so this rehearsal tape shall have to suffice for now. That's not to say it isn't a brilliant listen.
For those of you who don't know of Soma Coma, they're a hardcore band from Melbourne, Australia who play unhinged hardcore along the lines of fast weirdo 80s bands such as Die Kreuzen or Born Without A Face with more of a scuzzy Australian vibe. This rehearsal tape precedes the band's demo by two years and showcases a much more raw, ferocious incarnation of the band in delicious, lo-fi form.
Soma Coma are easily one of my favourite current hardcore bands in Australia at the moment, and well worth your time. Check em out.
(PS I've accidentally put the 2013 demo in the ZIP file - which has been reviewed previously on this blog - so it's a veritable two for one deal here folks)
