News: Holy Crap!!! Comus is back!!!!! New song!!!!

If I had made a list of one-off amazing bands from the early 70s that I never thought we'd ever hear from again (this is pure hypothetical musings here, who has time to make up ridiculous lists of this nature?), Comus would easily top that list. Holy crap! They're back! They've recorded a new live DVD! They're working on new material! In case you haven't guessed, I'm a huge fan. In fact, the creepy dark creature from the cover of their masterpiece, First Utterance, is featured in the header image on this very website. (That twisted agonizing thing hiding in the rocks on the right side) If this video clip, a live performance of their first new song in 30 years, is any indication; this is going to be a heck of a come back. If you've never heard of Comus, I'd describe their music as being some of the darkest all-acoustic progressive folk music I've ever heard. Check out their website and watch the video embedded below for crying out loud!

Comus played live again for the first time in thirty four years at Stefan Dimle’s Melloboat Festival on the 9th March 2008 to a tumultuous reception. A DVD of their electrifying performance at the festival is in production.
