VOLUME 26 NO 2 - FEB 2ND, 2008:

Where have the true dirty rock'n'roll sounding bands gone? With an industry of completely polished somewhat rock bands dominating the airwaves, it is hard to find a straight out stripped down rock band. Well take a look into ZänKoma a Los Angeles based group influenced by the energy of AC/DC, Lynard Skynard, Black Sabbath & Jack Daniels. From tracks Road To Nowhere, Lady Jade & Foot Massage, ZänKoma have put the roots of bluesy rock'n'roll back into the scene with their old school type riffing and solos - ass whipping drums & 80's style vocals that will surely bring you back to the good old days of rock music.

If you have ever wondered why electricity was invented then Hear- is your answer, ZänKoma. These cats hit the stage in Texas and from the first chord ripped the room to shreds. After the last chored echoed through the room Texas knew a new force in Rock n' Roll was born. In a day full of Growl bands and Fake-Ass Skater bands with inter-changeable vocals and multi-tracked bullshit stacked to the ceiling; it's freakin' awesome to see a band that can plug in and wail. ZänKoma brings back the sound and energy of bands like LA Guns and Guns n' Roses. Bands that were not afraid for you to hear what they were saying while ripping your ears off and still maintaining melody and a driving beat to boot. This band is the real deal. I dare you to catch this band live and not be blown away. I dare you to listen to this band's studio work and not listen to it over and over again. Rock n' Roll is alive and well and it's new name is ZänKoma. - CAREY DEAN – KRVF THE SOUND OF TEXAS 106.9 (ON-AIR PERSONALITY)

ZänKoma recorded three songs as preview of the forthcoming EP which will be released in 2009. They perform a rock sound with the right glamish touch filled with heaviness. And this has nothing to do with the soft glam pop of underaged retort bands that flood Germany these days!
The sound is full of power, energy and attitude. These songs already present the facilities and the wide spread repertoire of the three talented musicians of ZänKoma – and these songs want you to listen to more. - Nina Lindholm ‘Stalker Magazine”

Bio

Riding Shotgun with ZänKoma

You see, in an age where most rock bands take themselves so seriously it’s almost like they’re afraid to move so much as a limb on stage, and plain ol’ sex-starved, rude and crude rock-and-roll is considered old hat, ZänKoma is a breath a fresh air. You walk into a ZänKoma show—well—you’d better brace yourself for the primeval freak-out; the head-banging and the scraggled hair and the tongues flashing and the hips thrusting in perfect time. That’s rock and roll, folks. Or at least, that’s what it used to be, and ZänKoma—a young L.A. band comprised of a bunch of furry dudes who could have been Metallica roadies if they’d been born two decades earlier—is bringing it back.

Since the band’s inception in early 2007, the beer-swilling boys of ZänKoma have graduated from the school of typical run-of-the-mill bar bands and become first-class arena rockers, opening for Bad Company, LA Guns, Vains of Jenna and Lynch Mob, scoring roles in commercial ads and selling out shows on a regular basis. And with their splashes of Moterhead-induced power chords, their AC/DC riffing and soaring Guns N Roses choruses, their sound is powerful enough to blow the balls off a charging rhino. ZänKoma has accrued more and more fans at each and every pit stop they make. For each power chord they shred and for every shot of whiskey they drink, their crowds grow, along with their name. Grab a gal, turn up the amps and let the beer pour, gentlemen. ZänKoma’s gonna rev this engine ‘til it squeals.
