Coal Chamber In-depth Biography

Coal Chamber} broke out of the Los Angeles alternative metal} scene in 1997 with a sound often compared to Korn}, although both bands formed around the same time and are quality representations of the scene's overall sound -- the heavy, detuned guitars of the murkiest Black Sabbath}, grungy, noisy textures reminiscent of White Zombie} or Tool}, the white-knuckle intensity of Pantera} and hardcore punk, and perhaps a few hip-hop}-influenced beats á la Biohazard}. Coal Chamber} was formed in 1994 by vocalist/lyricist B. Dez Fafara} and guitarist Miguel "Meegs" Rascon}, who met through a classified ad; the two added drummer Mike "Mikee" Cox} and bassist Rayna Foss}, the latter of whom heard about auditions through her roommate, Fafara}'s future wife. A huge local buzz following gigs at the Roxy} and the Whisky A-Go-Go}, along with a demo tape championed by Fear Factory}'s Dino Cazares}, got the band an opportunity to sign with Roadrunner Records} late in 1994, but Fafara} suddenly quit due to disagreements with his wife over the band. By the spring of 1995, Fafara} changed his mind and returned, a decision that ultimately cost him his marriage, but a renewed sense of energy helped Coal Chamber} regain their Roadrunner} deal by the end of the year. Their self-titled debut was released in 1997; Chamber Music} followed two years later. The album was a minor success but its mixture of goth rock imagery and nu metal thuggery made for an uneven album. They toured heavily behind it but by the time it came time to record the next album, bassist Rayna Foss-Rose} was gone to raise her daughter, leaving the band with Nadja Peulen}. Nadja} took Foss-Rose}'s place during her pregnancy between the first two albums, but she accepted the invitation to come back as a full time member during the recording of the next record. The resulting album, Dark Days}, was released in the spring of 2002. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
