Coma have notched up several number one hits in both the single and album charts as well as multiple gold and platinum awards for all of their previous 5 studio albums in their native Poland.

Fireworks Magazine reviewed 'Don't Set Your Dogs On Me', the band's first album to be released internationally, in their March / April issue, stating "This record has a variety of styles that help hold your interest over a bruising, intense disc. On 'Keep The Peace' the chorus has a slightly hypnotic OSI feel to it; 'With You' is quirkily sung coming across like a Polish Counting Crows. 'Always Summer' has Pearl Jam undertones and 'Dance With A Queen' has a frantic Rage Against The Machine energy. The title track has a raw, modern bilious power. 'Moscow' has a vivid narrative and a slower pace that keeps the tail end of the record interesting."

Coma, the biggest rock band in Poland, whose irresistible sixth studio album, 'Don't Set Your Dogs On Me' was released on earMUSIC on February 25th, have confirmed 2 UK headline concerts in April. Dates are:

25th April – MANCHESTER 02 Academy
26th April – LONDON 02 Academy Islington's review of 'Don't Set Your Dogs On Me' proclaims that "It's always a real pleasure to be able to assist a band that are on the verge of greatness. Poland's Coma are one such act. Since 1998 the five piece have been working hard at their craft and that determination is now paying off big time. With several 'Fryderk Awards' (think our Brit Awards) under their belts, support slots for the likes of Pearl Jam, Tool and Linkin Park and that all important dedication to live performance (over 100 gigs per year).

New album 'Don't Set Your Dogs On Me' sees Coma at their very best production and creativity wise. The 13 songs on offer here take us on a musical journey through the band's personal demons, feeling and life experiences. What Coma do best is defy the limitations of heavy rock and present their listeners with music that tells a story, which sees some tracks head down the melodic route and others take a more straight forward rock approach. If this album is anything to 2013 will be the year that these five men from Lodz (Poland) take those first steps to global success."

Don't miss the chance to catch Coma's elaborate, electric, stage shows when they fly in to the UK to play 'Don't Set Your Dogs On Me', a major milestone on the band's road to international acclaim, live. /



Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
