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. /



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
