"Album Review: Cometa – In Rhyme & Reason"

"Overall, it was a good catchy listen with some nice hooks. I am quite curious to see where they go with this" - Emo at Heart

"Clash Of The Titans"

What must have been especially tough for the judges was deciding who was the best of the best because of the different genres represented. There was Cometa, a blend of emo and metal - or as they liked to call it, "dance metal" - who sounded like they belonged on the Warped Tour - The Daily Campus, Stephen Ortiz

"Anberlin makes last New England stop at UConn"

Cometa, an alternative metal band out of Orange, Conn., kicked off the concert at noon. Their songs were all aggressive and up-tempo with screaming, growling vocals, and plenty of emotion. - The Daily Campus

"Tap Out Is Victorious"

Cometa, a band described as the birth product of "if Saosin, Iron Maiden and Thrice had sex" by the mediator, showed its confidence and comfort onstage. Considering this is the young band's first gig (Cometa formed a month ago), it will be interesting to see what happens in the future. Their set was littered with tight harmonies on guitars, vocals with the endearing nasal reminiscence of A.F.I. and undertones of sinister metal. - The Daily Campus


Three Songs (2009)
In Rhyme & Reason (2012)

Radiance (2015)



Originally from Winnipeg, Canada, twin brothers Grant & Gareth Cometa played in separate bands for years. In 2012 they combined powers and recorded their first album "In Rhyme & Reason". 

Cometa matches aggressive punk riffs with intelligent lyrics. They honed their song craftsmanship even further with their second album "Radiance" in 2015.

Cometa has been nominated "Best Hard Rock" at the New England Music Awards and has garnered opening spots for Hawthorne Heights, New Found Glory, and the Vans Warped Tour.

Their aim is to foster positivity and spread the word about music education, science, & animal rights.
