"...something of a composite of Tool, Primus, Nirvana, System of a Down, The Mars Volta, Muse, and Incubus. The description seems accurate in select places — not overall — and doesn't give the band enough credit for its singular creation." -GLENN BURNSILVER, PHOENIX NEWTIMES
“Undoubtedly the strongest debut effort I’ve come across in many years. Take steps to check this one out, it’s most definitely worth your while. ” -KEVIN SELLERS, MUSIC EMISSIONS
"If ever there was a break out band in the making, it's The Oxford Coma." -GLENN BURNSILVER, PHOENIX NEWTIMES
"This is not the psychedelic band that your parents encountered at Woodstock in the 60's. The Oxford Coma is a rock'n roll beast waiting to consume the unsuspecting ears of any virgin listener to grunge music." -SENSEITIONAL, IAMENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE
"...I really do think this album is a huge dose of what rock has been lacking songwriting, skillful musicianship and memorable hooks. It all sounds so much like so much of what I loved growing up, and that's the greatest praise I can give it. Rating: 9/10" -SOLITARYMAN, MUSICEMMISIONS.COM

The Oxford Coma: Psychedelic Anxiety Grunge Metal and/or The World’s Heaviest Jam Band

Support your local anti-scene

Thank you for stopping by.  This is the main hub for news, tour info, and merchandise for The Oxford Coma.  Who the hell are they you ask?  Fine question indeed.  If you’re into Tool, Neurosis, NIN, Primus, and Nirvana you’ll probably like The Oxford Coma.  The music is more or less psychedelic groove-based sludge rock with some elements of metal, grunge, and progressive rock (no keyboard solos, promise).  The Oxford Coma recently became a mutual endorsee and endorser of the legendary British amplifier company Orange Amplifiers.  Their new EP “Morphine,” recorded at Audioconfusion in Mesa, AZ by Jalipaz (Engineer and Producer Extraordinaire responsible for several Andrew Jackson Jihad albums, Peachcake records, and a plethora of great records by artists from across the country) is due out in the fall of 2014.  Read about it here.
