Coma of Souls is the fifth studio album by German thrash metal band Kreator, released in 1990. It was reissued in 2002, with the lyrics for the last four songs missing from the booklet. It would be the last album before the band began experimenting with influences from other musical genres. It also would be the last record issued in the U.S. by Epic Records.

Coma of Souls was also released in the U.S. as a limited edition in purple vinyl. Although the album's lyrics contain no profanity, original copies of Coma of Souls had a Parental Advisory label on the cover. Subsequent pressings of the album do not carry the Parental Advisory label.
