When Coal Chamber arrived to the Heavy Music scene in 1994, their music was assimilated by millions of fans worldwide thanks to their fresh sounding mix of Heavy Metal and Alternative Music blended with elements of Industrial Metal. Aside from their music, their gothic imagery also helped to captivate a ton of eye balls that were rather confused at what Coal Chamber was feeding to them. After a successful run that spanned from 1994 to 2003, Dez Fafara left the band due to internal problems. Shortly after he left the band, Dez formed DevilDriver and we all know the results of this crushing band by now: uncompromised hard hitting Heavy Metal!
After reuniting this past March for a series of concerts as part of Australia's Soundwave Festival (video below), DevilDriver singer Dez Fafara has announced that he in talks with the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California in order to have COAL CHAMBER perform their first Los Angeles-area show in over 10 years.
Earlier this year, during an interview with Australia's Loud magazine, Dez talked about how the COAL CHAMBER reunion came about: "In '05, Meegs [Miguel Rascón, guitar] started coming around. He apologized to my wife for the way things went down with COAL CHAMBER, because when COAL CHAMBER split up I had to move my family into a one-bedroom apartment and start all over. So when he apologized to my wife, I thought, 'Well, OK, he's got a big heart inside him. And he's clean off the hard drugs now, let's see if this goes awhile.' So let's fast forward a few years to '09, he and Mikey [Mike Cox, drums] were still clean off hard drugs, Meegs came out and did 'Loco' onstage with DevilDriver. After that he gave me a hug onstage and in my ear he said, 'Let's do this again.'"
