COMA
The band came into existence in June 1998. The name - Coma - was chosen accidentally. They tossed a coin to decide because they had an appointment for an interview in Radio Łódź. During their first rehearsals they named the band Voo Doo Art, but it didn't catch on.

The band started off with Dominik Witczak on guitar and Tomasz Stasiak on drums. They had played together earlier in a band enigmatically called Ozoz. After Ozoz had fallen apart Witczak-Stasiak team tried to form a band which would play music inspired by Illusion, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, etc. Yet finding a bass player turned out to be problematic. However they tried they didn't get along with any of the candidates for this honourable post. They had to wait quite a long time for God to send them Rafał Matuszak who apart from being a pretty good musician and partygoer turned out to live 300m from Witczak. The three guys were fascinated with one another. They had rehearsals a few times a week. Dominik, Tomasz and Rafał made up their minds to rock together until their dying day, and then they cut their veins and... sealed their decision with blood.

In this way the hybrid was created and functioned under the name "Voo Doo Art". The next to join the band was Wojciech Grenda, whom Dominik and Tomasz knew from Ozoz. After they welcomed him warmly, their friendship developed very quickly. To complete the picture, guys needed someone who could sing. But here their expectations were sky high. Stasiak, Witczak and Grenda had once played with Agnieszka Unczur, a person who sung better than most of the vocalists you could hear on the radio. The gentlemen infected with her superb voice could only choose someone who sung at least as well as she did, or better. God showed mercy one more time.

Matuszak along with Witczak apart from playing in Voo Doo Art performed with another band - De Ja Vi (guitar+bass+3 girls on vocals). De Ja Vi's rehearsals took place in the building owned by scout troop where one person, a scout, appeared very often. It was Piotr Rogucki. They were bound to meet. Our musicians thought that it would be worth trying to take the young talented vocalist. Here we skip the fact that these three gentlemen knew each other from technical college. Most probably it didn't occur to them then that they would ever play in one band.
After the first rehearsal with Piotr, the choice proved to be the best possible. Long months of struggling with compositions followed. Guys drank many different alcoholic beverages that helped to tighten cooperation within the band. Everything seemed to head in a good direction. And suddenly after years of plenty a very unpleasant "situation" took place. As a result Wojciech Grenda was dismissed from the band. Fortunately replacement for him was found very quickly. Marcin Kobza joined the band. He was known in Łodź at that time as an excellent guitarist and played with groups such as Pig Bit or Second Hand. He fit in perfectly.

By the end of 2003 Coma signed a contract with BMG Poland, and started recording their debut album - "Pierwsze Wyjście Z Mroku" - right away. The recording sessions started in November and lasted until January 2004. Even though it may sound unbelievable, all instruments were recorded between 12th and 18th November in Łodź and during the last three days of January in Gdańsk. A throat infection stopped Piotr from recording vocals until December. His sessions took place in Łódź and Gdańsk. Toiled by the sweat of their brows, worthy of sacrifice, the material which contained a dozen or so tracks finally found its way to music shops on 17th May 2004. As it turned out fans noticed and appreciated Coma's hard work what was very visible during concerts which drew huge audiences. Those concerts were organized by the new manager of Coma - Robert Kurpisz. People from the business also appreciated "Pierwsze Wyjście Z Mroku" awarding it with a Fryderyk statuette (equivalent for Grammy Award) for Album of the Year - Rock.

In 2005 during a break in the tour, the band started to work on some new material, which was later tried out live. This is how "Zaprzepaszczone Siły Wielkiej Armii Świętych Znaków", Coma's second album began to take on its shape. It was released on 29th May 2006 and remained on the first place of the Official Retail Sales Chart for a few weeks and had soon gained the Golden Record status. And as was the case with the first record, also that time fans appreciated the album awarding it with the title of Antyradio's Album of the Year. During the 13th Woodstock Festival the band received a Złoty Bączek statuette - awarded by the audience. The circle of Polish musicians, music journalists and music critics once again honoured Coma with Fryderyk awards. That time the band won two of them for Album of the Year Rock/metal and Group of the Year.

In 2007 Coma supported such bands as Linkin Park, Pearl Jam and Tool. Later the same year, after a few years on tour the band decided to hide in the mountains, in a place called "Muzyczna Owczarnia" in Jaworki. There in the care of the wonderful family of the owner of the place, in the peaceful silence of the Pieniny Mountains they started to work on the material for their third album. When they returned to Łódź they continued polishing the material during rehearsals. In spring 2008 Adam Marszałkowski, known from another band from Łódź - Normalsi, took place of Tomasz Stasiak on drums and participated actively in writing of new tracks. Between April and September 2008 all of the compositions were recorded, and they were released as "Hipertrofia" on 10th of November 2008. The album soon gained the Double Platinum Record status (selling over 50k in Poland solely) and the band went on tour again.

After instant touring for over 5 years (since debut album came out) it was high time to record live performance for both CD and DVD. Coma gave spectacular show in Warsaw’s Arena Ursynów playing in front of 5000 enthusiastic fans with developed scene production and light effects offering show to be soon claimed by many as the most breathtaking and professional gig ever seen by any rock band from Poland. Band’s recent achievements were fuelled by label change - in the summer of 2009 Coma signed a deal with Mystic Production. CD, DVD and (first ever in Poland) BLU-RAY formats of “Live” album were released in March 2010. After dominating their home country, embarking on worldwide career was a natural step forward.  Coma recorded “Excess” album (English version of their best-selling record) which is scheduled to be released worldwide on 11th October 2010. Many words of praise have been said about Coma phenomenon, but this time – more than ever – music will speak for itself when you experience the impact of “Excess” first-hand!
