BandRock

ZänKoma is a Rock'n'Roll band, whose style is as timely as it is timeless. Their music is a seamless blend of rock, punk & blues, AC/DC, Zeppelin & Sex Pistols. They provide the soundtrack to a first kiss and with the flick of a switch blow the balls off a charging rhino within a 100 yards.

Biography

The English have heart, Germans have angst, and Texans have the firepower - throw them together and you might get WWIII, or a highly explosive rock band. ZänKoma has the explosives laid and world domination in their eyes. And they’ll do it on their own terms. They’ve built an international force of musicians from three countries and two continents.

German raised front man, Adam Balogh, delivers cutting edge vocal melody and guitar hooks that any Hellacopters, Black Sabbath, or AC/DC fan can pump a fist to. A musician since age 5, Balogh developed his musical talent singing in choirs and playing classical trumpet music throughout his childhood. He brought his abilities to numerous bands in Europe until reaching age 20, when he decided to leave because “I needed to be where things were happening and I was pretty much bored”. So he packed his bags and headed for the bright lights and dark nights of Los Angeles.

It was in L.A. that Balogh later crossed paths with Ben-Jammin, a rock n roller that plays drums like a Texas cliché… loud and big. Growing up with a steady diet of Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, blues tunes, Jack Daniels, big trucks and guns, the two immediately clicked, created, and searched for others like minded.

An English lad named Steve Burchell had also made the leap across the pond in search of a rock Mecca in L.A. After only days in the U.S., he found ZänKoma. Burchell’s guitar playing is fast, hard and tip top. In an age that lacks guitar heroes, Burchell is proof positive that a Les Paul through a Marshall with some style is a classic recipe for a huge sound.

ZänKoma headed to the studio late last year and the result was a pedal to the floor, fuel injected dose of rock… real rock. It’s no wonder why the legendary Bill Dooley (Paramount), was quick to jump on board as the mastering engineer for these three songs. This band already has thousands of miles under their belts, and that was to just start the band. This is only the beginning.........

Foot Massage

Written By: Adam Balogh

Come on Baby don’t let me down
Make this another day in Paradise yeah
All the things I will let you live
Can’t tell your mama ‘til you’re 69
Come on now, come on girl
Give me Foot Massage

When I see you in my imagination girl
My imagination’s running wild
When I see You in my imagination girl
My imagination’s running wild

Come on baby don’t let me down
Make this another day in paradise yeah
I’m on stage cause I pay to play
This is as good as it’s gonna get yeah
Come on now, come on girl
Give me Foot Massage

When I see you…

I been a sucker for you many times before
Many many times before
I know you’re gonna end up on your knees
When I see you…

Lady Jade

Written By: Adam/Cat Balogh

Her spirit’s green as the hills
That have been loved by the rain
When she calls me all I can do is follow
Once I’m with her I don’t want to leave

I need to know, I need her now
I need to know, I need her now for sure

I pray to my Lady Jade
Her spell’s rushing through my veins
When I’m with her I need nothing at all
Her Wormwood magic is my door through the wall

This ain’t my physical greed
She is my healing disease
Against the blue and grey fears that define us
Against the Holy Diesel Demons who drive us

I need to know, I need her now
I need to know, I need her now for sure

I pray to my Lady Jade
Her spell’s rushing through my veins
When I’m with her I need nothing at all
Her Wormwood Magic let’s me see through it all…

Road to Nowhere

Written By: Adam Balogh

Burn your propaganda into my brain
Keeping me scared cause you’re insane

Come on and tell me, come on and tell me
It’s to be safe…it’s all for my sake, it’s for my sake,
it’s for my own good

What the hell is happening
Someone’s always listening
Bombs are falling
On the road to nowhere
What the hell is happening
Someone’s always listening
Here we go again
On the road to nowhere

I’m trying real hard to see the values
They’re buried underneath your lies

Come on and tell me, come on and tell me
It’s to be safe…

What the hell is happening
Someone’s always listening
Bombs are falling
On the road to nowhere
What the hell is happening
Someone’s always listening
Here we go again
On the road to nowhere
