De-Loused in the Comatorium is the debut studio album by The Mars Volta, and it remains their most successful album to date, both commercially and critically. It was released in 2003 to widespread critical acclaim, with Rhythm magazine voting it the 9th best drumming record, and the track Drunkship of Lanterns named by Rolling Stone as the 91st best guitar song in history. De-Loused is a concept album based on a short story written by members of the band.

De-Loused in the Comatorium is the debut studio album by American progressive rock band the Mars Volta, released on June 24, 2003, on Gold Standard Laboratories and Universal Records. Based on a short story written by lead singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala and sound manipulation artist Jeremy Michael Ward, the concept album is an hour-long tale of Cerpin Taxt, a man who enters a week-long coma after overdosing on a mixture of morphine and rat poison.

SOLO, w/ Piano playing in the background. How to play De-Loused In The Comatorium.

De-Loused in the Comatorium will undoubtedly rekindle prog, or at least spur a reassessment of the genre. Somewhere, kids will proclaim The Mars Volta to sound like Fugazi's End Hits mixed with The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (which it sort of does)- the Comatorium title "Eriatarka" even sounds like Spanish for "Aquatarkus"- but few will confess to actually liking Genesis or ELP. Though The Mars Volta may be prog in the traditional sense, they're in no way "progressive," just as The Hives do not record their music in a "garage. If any, the album constantly recalled during Comatorium listens is Mansun's 1998 sprawl, Six. The seagull-screaming guitar solos on "Roulette Dares" mimic Dominic Chad's playing on tracks like "Negative" and "Shotgun". The magic-trick studio transitions sound eerily similar on both records.

De-Loused in the Comatorium is the first studio album by the progressive rock band The Mars Volta. Based on a short story by lead singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala, and sound manipulation artist Jeremy Michael Ward, it is the hour-long tale of Cerpin Taxt, a man who tries to kill himself by overdosing on a mixture of morphine and rat poison. The attempt lands him in a week-long coma during which he experiences visions of humanity and his own psyche.

De-Loused In The Comatorium is a music studio album recording by THE MARS VOLTA (Heavy Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 2003 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. and as the turn of the millenium occured music continued to progress alongside time but no new studio album has been this memorable since the dawn of our new millenium.

I own this set and all can say is it is awesome. Great packaging, and the best sound of this album available. Those who say it sounds like shit, take a CD and compare. Other than that, it's the first pressing, don't have the money for that. This one it's top notch. In mine there's a little noise, but once it's cleaned it almost disappears.
  • Kann
I just picked up a copy and confirm that it sounds like shit. It has a lot of surface noise.
  • Ballardana
i i sold my repress too but im still happy with the sound of my original pressing .. never had a pic disc sound that good
  • Felolune
calm down, Cedric... we'll buy nadie reissues too... just calm down and reissue frances and bedlam
  • Hǻrley Quinn
I've got the gold version & there's a very soft crackle throughout the entire album - anyone else get this?
  • fabscf
yes mine had too much surface noise to listen to. Sold it and got the black version. much better.
  • Lanadrta
My gold pressing has a good bit of surface noise as well.
  • Banal
Sounds fantastic; much better than the original pressing.
  • Enone
Looks good and Sounds Great.
  • Kulafyn
Can anyone find this release on MOV site?I saw it there a month ago there but now looks like it's gone, any clue why?
  • Tholmeena
People on various forums are guessing that it's due to the dispute between Universal/MOV and the band.
  • Dancing Lion
Nothing crappy about this release. Awesome packaging, great looking and sounding records. Also 100% legit. Really don't care too much about TMV not pocketing the money for this reissue. They claim to have all the rights needed to release vinyl-reissues on their own, but never bothered thinking about it all these years. And now that universal/MOV does the job, all of a sudden Cedric is like suuuper excited about those reissues they've been planning since at least ever and how terribly great and official they are going to be. No thanks, I'm good. Suck it, Cedric.
  • Dordred
Exactly. We were waitng for years. I already pre ordered Amputhechre and if they do their own release of Frances , and i can get it here in Europe , then i will probably get their version. If not then MOV.
  • Mr.Savik
Music on Vinyl is financed or even owned, I don't know, by big music business, possibly even Universal themselves. They have lawyers who clear the rights to whatever they feel like releasing. Apparently the band (who licensed the CD version of this record to Universal but retained the rights for the vinyl) wasn't on board for this release, which seems like a quick shot reaction to the bootleg that was released a few months ago. I onw some MOV records, and while the vinyl and sound quality are mostly good, sometimes the print/cover quality sucks. I think the band should have repressed this long ago but I guess Universal somehow fucked them over so they couldn't. The first press was on picture discs that sound good but in many cases were not flat, now we get this with reportedly crappy covers, and the bootleg that's a CD master, and possibly another reissue by the band's approval... it's all a bit messed up. I wish there was one version that does these recordings justice! Hope the band will make that happen!
  • AGAD
I don't what everybody is saying but my cover and the rest of the packaging looks nice! Glossy Gatefold and thin but elastic inners , so they don't rip fast. If you compare that to Mars Volta self released last album you have a non gatefold 2lp with very thin inner sleeves and the center labels of the vinyl is bigger than usual so when the stylus raches the end it just stays there and doesn't stop the turntable. Its funny to see all the enraged fanboys on twitter repeating evrything cedric says.
  • ᵀᴴᴱ ᴼᴿᴵᴳᴵᴻᴬᴸ
Music On Vinyl have tweeted to say that this release is official. You can read this article which i think clears it all up. http://modern-vinyl.com/2014/05/17/a-word-on-misusing-bootleg-and-the-mars-volta/
  • Zulkishicage
that's at least was cedric said...dunno if he's right.
  • Nnulam
black and silver are official, but gold isn't? doesn't make any sense to me. at all. either MOV has officiall rights to press those records, or they don't. and they do.
  • lolike
all of the MOV-versions are official. Cedric is spreading wrong information - he's either terribly misinformed or trying to make people wait for the US reissues that the band will be putting out on Nadie. Chances are that they want more money from royalties than they're getting from Universal via the MOV-release, and therefore are misinforming fans about the MOV-version. Total dick move from their part.
  • Qumenalu
all represses are from "nadie sounds". omar's (?) new label...
  • Amis
only silver and black ones are official represses.
  • Lbe
check his tweets from last night: https://twitter.com/cedricbixler_
  • Priotian
Are you sure he isn't referencing the "Gold Standard Laboratories" release that is unofficial?
  • Mavivasa
he has stated that it is indeed the gold vinyl copies from MOV - I still consider him misinformed
  • Dagdatus
these are bootlegs. confirmed by cedric on twitter.
  • playboy
There's some speculation that Cedric isn't fully informed as to who holds the distribution rights in Europe. A little sketchy maybe, but probably technically legal.
  • Xirmiu
No, they're not. Music On Vinyl is a legit label.Most likely one of two things have happened:1. Cedric is confusing this reissue with the bootlegs that were released fall last year. Those were originally meant to be gold-colored, but ended up being black.2. Cedric is displeased with the fact that the band had no say in whether or not these reissues shold happen (most likely due to different rights holders in the US and the EU) and now he's deliberately spreading misinformation. He's not exactly the most stable person so I can't say I'm surprised if this is the case.
  • Eta
Cedric is calling the reissue a bootleg on Twitter (https://twitter.com/cedricbixler_/status/467413950082977792). Please disregard his comments and tweets as he's clearly got no idea what he's talking about. This is 100% official - just in case anyone's in doubt.
  • Brol
Put yourself in his shoes man. If someone was producing and selling your art for a profit without so much as a heads-up, i'm sure you would be pretty upset.
  • Naktilar
Not worth the 40 dollars. The packaging on it is a big disappointment. I would still say to buy the original copy. Its a quality press.
