Album of the Day
Coma Rage (Expanded Edition)
Since emerging in the mid-1980s, Viper has become one of the most important ambassadors of Brazilian hard rock, recording and touring through Europe, the U.S., Japan and South America. Cut shortly before the quartet's appearance at the 1994 “Monsters of Rock” festival in São Paulo, COMA RAGE was made in Los Angeles with producer Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Testament). “We were already influenced by heavy metal, but we also started to have contact and make friends with other punk, grunge and even hardcore bands,” says guitarist Felipe Machado of the group's fourth – and heaviest - studio set. Now available, an expanded and remastered version of COMA RAGE features previously unreleased bonus tracks including the album's pre-production demo and “País do Futuro,” Viper's first song in Portuguese.
