Coal Chamber is the eponymous debut album by American nu metal band Coal Chamber. It was released on February 11, 1997 by Roadrunner Records and contains the single "Loco".
Coal Chamber are led by gruff vocalist Dez Fafara and operate in territory somewhere between the traditional hard riffing of Black Sabbath and the sensationalist techno rock of Marilyn Manson. Fafara met guitarist Miguel "Meegs' Rascon through a classified ad, and they later added drummer Mike Cox and bass player Rayna Foss, the room-mate of Fafara's future wife. The arrangement became permanent in 2002. The band was further unsettled when Cox departed the same September. Coal Chamber split in 2003. In late 2011 it was announced that Coal Chamber would be reformed.

The debut album from LA nu metal band Coal Chamber. It was certified Gold and remains Coal Chamber’s highest selling album. It also spawned the hit single Loco. Musically, the album is simple nu metal, clearly inspired by their contemporaries Korn. The guitars have the classic down-tuned nu metal sound and basslines are funk influenced. The vocals alternate between growling and panicked clean singing. The lyricism is abstract and often repetitive, as demonstrated by Loco and Sway.
While Coal Chamber's self-titled debut album doesn't sound all that original (White Zombie and Korn are obvious touchstones), they are certainly one of the better bands in the so-called alternative metal genre. Their sound is noisy and powerful, they seem to approach the music with strong emotional commitment, and B. Dez Fafara's vocals are appealingly left-of-center
