COMA DIVINE is the new creation of (and with) Sonja Kraushofer, well known singer of the bands L’ÂME IMMORTELLE and PERSEPHONE.
She found company in Ashley Dayour who is also known from gothic rock-institution WHISPERS IN THE SHADOW, Martin Hoefert (PERSEPHONE & Ex-SOPOR AETERNUS), Franz Heinrich Lirsch and Wolfgang Luckner.
Musically their approach differs from the sound they‘ve been getting famous for within and beyond the gothic scene worldwide. Exploring new boundaries and searching for new ways to express themselves you will find metal meeting neo-classical arrangements; melancholic guitars are combined with heavy riffs; expressive songwriting leads into catchy refrains. A distorted cello shows the path, thundering drums step forwad and an abysmal bass-sound leaves you behind, trembling...
Yet you‘ll find Sonja‘s voice enthroning the scenery all over! Surprisingly, sudden changes in tempo or timbre may suggest a progressive ambition seldomly heard in this specific genre.
Already the opener „Burn Sister“ defines what‘s being aimed at: starting as a never-to-be-tamed riff-monster it takes its time to take a brake within a ballad-like part until it leads into a bombastic, final blowup. But even songs like the catchy „From Time To Time“ or the impulsve „Fast Lane“ show COMA DIVINE‘s musical diversity and strength.
Furthermore you‘ll find on this extraordinary debut-record nearly musically told short-stories such as „The Odd One Out“ or „About A Girl“. Finalized by „Dead End“ it brings the listener deep down to the most distant shores of human imagination - and just without any will, listeners will most probably drown into a comatic, divine condition - where everything is possible, everything permitted... but yet nothing‘s true!
