Ah, the things you can do with a single bass guitar, a good drum kit, and smoky female vocals. Coma Hole here are one of the rare bands on RMR that will make do without the usual lead guitar. Instead, they slap dat bass as you’ve never seen before with sometimes amazing results. The last band that really made an impression like that on us were the dear departed ones of Riti Occulti.1) And that was back in – 2016.
