Album Notes
The Oxford Coma is a 'progressive psychedelic grunge rock' band--kind of like a combination of Tool, The Mars Volta, Primus, Nirvana, Muse, System of a Down, and 'Science' era Incubus. Our debut album 'Adonis' has been a year long maelstrom of recording and producing. Prior to that we were holed up in our rehearsal space for months on end, just jamming and writing. We logged countless hundreds of hours of ideas on the voice recorders on our phones, only to whittle them down to the 13 tracks we're presenting here. Much to our delight, we've gotten the honor of being reviewed incredibly well. At this writing the album has been out for a total of 5 days, and already we've been given glowing reviews like, "If you are able to recall when Faith No More were at the absolute peak of their powers, when rock music was fast and furious, while carrying an urgency to it that actually mattered—this is where this song and the entire album is at. As curiously appealing to those who enjoy metal as to those who like their alternative music to have more guts to it than is normally found these days, “Seven” possesses a passion that is alluring, a swirling intoxicant that makes me breathe a little easier hearing, knowing, witnessing this music being made"(Mitchell Hillman, JAVA Magazine), and, "Adonis has a gritty edge, and contains some of the absolute best rock music you're going to find"(Kevin Sellers, Blogger and writer for musicemissions). Several other writers have grabbed onto the album and given their take, much to the same tune. The week prior to Adonis' release we were given the feature music article in the Phoenix Newtimes, which is one of the largest publications in Arizona.
Basically, all the bragging is to get you just interested enough to sample a listen, and then we would hope our music speaks for itself. We put the amount of work, time, and money into this that we did because we wanted to produce nothing short of a great record. It has been an amazing process to take part in. This album is the result of nervous breakdowns, fits of rage, spiritual bliss, calm discipline, deep confusion, frustration at every level, arguments, communication, friendship, and ultimately the three of us coming to know each other in the most beautiful way with which I am familiar: as musicians. We are tremendously proud of this debut, and we are thrilled about writing new material and developing more and more together.
We hope you'll take the time to listen. We hope you'll like it enough to buy. If you do, we hope it becomes a part of your regular music library. I, speaking for myself, feel that this is an album that grows with you over time. I encourage you to see for yourself.
