Avatar - Comets on Fire


Comets on Fire


Comets on Fire’s sound is a mess of dreadnought riffs, sky-scraping spherical freak out and tribal drums. A sound not unlike watching burning comets in the Mojave Desert wacked on mescaline. It’s a kool-aid acid test for the stoner generation.

They may stray a little too close to the world of prog for some tastes, but the sheer weight of the music and the dense knotted playing steals the day. Welcome to the wide open space of The Comets. Let them burn into the fabric of your mind’s eye.
