Coma Cluster Void: Now There’s a TEN-String Guitar Death Metal Band (and They’re Really Good!)
Subject: COMA CLUSTER VOID
this band is getting me hyped as fuck
10 string guitar progressive death metal band with Mike DiSalvo from Cryptopsy and Will Smith from Artificial Brain on dual vocals. Only demos are up right now, but its going to be a fucking crusher.
Naturally the “10 string guitar” part caught our attention — what with all the recent brouhaha over nine-string guitars — but we were relieved to learn that Coma Cluster Void are no gimmick: this band is legit! And yes, before you ask, they actually use all ten of those strings… and deftly, I might add.
Check out their five demo tracks below, via the band’s Soundcloud. Coma Cluster Void summon death metal’s more experimental, visceral side — think Ulcerate, Nero di Marte, Dysrhythmia, or even Portal on one of their more coherent days — for a challenging listen that’s got just the right of songwriting glue holding it all together. None of these tracks — some of which are just basic song ideas — have any vocals, but the band’s Facebook page confirms the participation of Mike DiSalvo and Will Smith, both of whom make a whole lot of sense for a band like this.
That 10-string guitar was made by Agile Guitars, for those wondering.
