专辑名称： The Second Wave
唱片公司： Roadrunner Records
The Second Wave是这支来自瑞典小镇Umeå的乐队的第二张专辑了，第一张专辑"Tsunami"是乐队在2004年发行的。
瑞典小镇Umeå简直就是天才的温床，CULT OF LUNA, REFUSED, MESHUGGAH, (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY都来自这个小镇。乐队成立于2002年，那时他们的名字还叫做Koma,乐队的核心主唱Jan Jämte，吉他Johannes Persson和负责吉他/键盘的Fredrik Kihlberg是同一所大学的学生，怀着作出不一样音乐的激情他们走到了一起。实际上他们就是第一支Khoma，负责词曲写作和录音。第二支Khoma就是他们三人再从其他乐队借来乐手来做现场演出。
Khoma is yet another bastard child of Umeå's raging music scene. Founded in 2002, the members have known each other for years- sharing dreams, rehearsal rooms, vans and a musical kindship that has survived the birth and death of a thousand bands.
Anything but a conventional band, Khoma is a few friends sharing a musical and political vision. Khoma is what won't fit the frame. A crashing wave of angst, desperation, anger and beautiful love.
Khoma has two faces. One that writes, rehearses, and records songs, and another that gathers to play live. The core of Khoma is always static vocalist Jan Jämte, guitarist Johannes Persson, and Fredrik Kihlberg on guitar/piano but the surrounding band members are a rolling collective of musicians.
"Khoma is a breathing space where different styles fuse", says Jan "We have a vision of creating heavy music that reflects more feelings than just sheer aggression. Sometimes whispering can be more powerful than screaming."
Despite starting as a side project originally, a few months in things were beginning to take off for the band. A limited 1000-disc run of debut album Tsunami was released and quickly sold out. It was reprinted and quickly sold out again.
