Coal Chamber - _Coal Chamber_
by: Adrian Bromley (
Los Angeles quartet Coal Chamber's self-titled debut album is everything that a die-hard Korn or even Deftones' fan would crave. It's heavily-coated with an intense rhythm section, overflowing with hard-hitting riffs and draped with maniacal vocals throughout. Sound familiar? While comparisons are very similar to the other two popular California outfits, the thing that sets Coal Chamber apart is the band's feel for melody and groove. While Korn and Deftones rely moreso on a maniacal charge of sorts with their burst of adrenaline-laced screams, Coal Chamber displays some control of material and that saves this project. Other than that I'm having a hard time telling these bands apart.
