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,
an international force of musicians from three countries and two continents.
It was in L.A. that Adam Balogh (Vocals / Guitars), born in Hungary,
grown up in Germany crossed paths with Ben-Jammin, a rock ‘n roller
that plays drums like a Texan cliché… loud and big. An English lad
named Steve Burchell (Guitars) 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.
The band headed to the studio in late 2006 and the result was a pedal to the
floor, fuel injected dose of rock… real rock. It’s no wonder that
the legendary Bill Dooley (Paramount), was quick to jump onboard
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
ZänKoma recorded three songs as preview of the forthcoming EP which will
be released in early 2008. They perform a rock sound with the right glamish
touch fulfilled with heaviness. And this has nothing to do with the softy
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 make you want to listen to more!
