Cold is back after 14 years in silence

Can you imagine if Fred Durst didn’t listen to Cold‘s demo? Would we know them today? Would we know what they’ve released a new album?

Cold

It was 2000, bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Staind… (Family Values ’98, great concert where we could see everyone sharing the same stage), they were doing their best. By accident, I got a CD with an eye-catching album cover: “COLD – 13 Ways to Bleed“. For sure, if you’ve listened to them, you couldn’t ignore Scooter Ward‘s voice, deep, dark, melancholic and with a very strong personality.

Cold or Grundig at that time, was formed in 1996, Jacksonville (Florida). Their first album of the same name, produced by Ross Robinson, didn’t have much success. It was in 2000 with their second album “13 Way to Bleed“, when the band became widely known. If this is the first time you’ve heard of them, I strongly recommend you start here.

Their third album “Year of the Spider“, made them reach the top, heading into 3rd place on the Billboard chart, but also meant a year of change, professional as well as personal. Their first single, “Stupid Girl,” featured Weezer singer Rivers Cuomo. However, after this great success, the record label or the bad personal moment that was going Scooter Ward (never clarified), they stopped to promote the album.

Hit song:

Scooter Ward wrote for a long period many songs in his sister’s room, who had suffered a huge battle against cancer. As a result of these experiences, the title of his fourth album, “A Different Kind of Pain” was born. Unfortunately it wasn’t very successful and in 2006 Cold announced their break-up.

Finally and after 14 years in the dark, Cold returns for the pleasure of us who saw them grow up.

“I did experience writer’s block for the first time in my life during the process though. It was brutal, because the one thing I’ve always had—left me.”. – Scooter Ward

 

Curiosity: the spider’s logo defines Cold‘s music as “slow and creepy”.
