‘Vau Faelgoh’, the fifth full length from screamo maestros COMA REGALIA marks their most intense of their 30+ releases. Featuring 11 short, fast, cathartic and beautiful screamy hardcore tunes in the vein of Funeral Diner, Orchid, Beau Navire and …Who Calls So Loud, this passion-fueled LP can be listened in full below!
The new COMA REGALIA, to put it lightly, fucking owns. 11 tracks of desperately passionate/cathartic screamo from the mind, fingers, feet and lungs of Shawn Decker (Middle Man Records). This is the angriest, fastest and most chaotic of all their material. / Zegema Beach Records
The hardest working band in screamo business are back, with this marking their fifth full-length album, alongside nearly 30 splits in their 9 years of existence. Of course it is none other than Coma Regalia, who are releasing Vau Faelgoh on May 25th, via Middle-Man Records. They have been an absolute staple in modern screamo history, thanks to their relentlessly prolific release schedule, and close association with countless notable bands via splits/touring, as well as drummer/vocalist Shawn Decker‘s involvement in the equally-essential Middle-Man Records. They’ve made a name for themselves through their visceral and volatile playing, and heavy influence from a myriad of classic screamo acts, including Funeral Diner, Beau Navire and The Saddest Landscape. / Sophie’s Floorboard
Vau Faelgoh reaffirms their already-cemented legacy as masters of their art. In these 11 tracks, the band drips with chaotic fervor, towing the line between hardcore aggression and melodic release. They utilize quick, dynamic changes to great effect, making these mostly 2-minute tracks sound like opuses. The desperate vocal delivery and cutting lead guitar lines recall the best tracks in The Saddest Landscape’s catalogue, with songs like “Eaufell” being prime examples of this. The following track, “Aestheroh”, features a pg.99-like build-up, which is just one of many homages to the sound they are torchbearers of.
Coma Regalia are a must-listen in the modern screamo-sphere. Not only are they one of the most prolific acts to come out this decade, but one of the greatest at keeping this sound alive. Vau Faelgoh is a fantastic introduction if you have not heard them before (which, let’s face it, you’ve definitely heard of this band through at least one of their splits already). The album is out on May 25th via Middle-Man Records. More information can be found below on release day. / Sophie’s Floorboard
