Second album by the guys from Helsinki: Kometa.

The three-piece band from the Finnish capital features their second studio album: A Strange Revelation, after releasing in 2005 their debut record Like a Light Bulb.

The band is well known and experienced in the Finnish music scene, having played in hundreds of venues here, including some big festivals, and having also visited other foreign countries such as Germany or Estonia. That experience gets transformed into maturity and consistency in an album that surprises all over the 11 tracks. From the starting guitar riffs of Jet Pack to the final song that is named after the album´s title,

Kometa achieves something lacked by many Finnish bands: a personal style. Rock with guts and a feeling of assisting to a controlled sloppiness while playing that for some moments can remind you of The White Stripes in songs like Holy Spirit or Quit.

They will be playing during March and April in the biggest Finnish cities, and surely it is a band worthy to check on live.

Rate: 4/5

Gravy EP (Sue) 2003
Like a Light Bulb (BV2 Produktions) 2005
A Strange Revelation (Megamania) 2008



A three-piece band from Helsinki, Finland, Kometa has been around with the current line up for almost ten years. So far they have played around Estonia and Russia. In 2007 they made their second week-long tour in Germany, and of course almost 200 gigs around Finland (e.g. Provinssirock and Ilosaarirock, some of the biggest festivals in Finland), making new hardcore fans everywhere they go. Energetic and razor sharp, Kometa is ’universally’ acknowleged as an amazing live band.

Drawing from a vast array of influences, the music itself has inspired such far-fetched comparisons as ’Black Sabbath meets The Beatles’, but the band members refuse to be categorized. Instead they let the live shows and records do the talking.

”Gravy” was the title of their debut five-song CD-EP, released in January 2003 .

March 2005 came out their full-length debut album “Like a Light Bulb” featuring 12 songs. Album was released by legendary indie label Bad Vugum. The CD has duly won rave reviws in the Finnish music press.

And finally February 2008 it´s time for another outstanding Kometa-album. “A Strange Revelation” is released by MEGAMANIA /JOHANNA KUSTANNUS , which is one of the biggest and oldest indie labels in Finland.
