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.

Thank you Taylor Swift for showing us I Prevail

Welcome to my TraumaI Prevail releases their last work and I won’t lie to you, is at the same level as we expected.

I Prevail – Trauma album

Continuing on the track of their previous work “Lifelines“, the band keeps betting on their guttural verses by Eric Vanlerberghe, with the catchy, harmonious choruses of Brian Burkheiser.

Getting another MASTERPIECE is not easy, even more so considering where the bar was set. They won’t let you down at all!

Black Veil Brides, back to the 80’s

Black Veil Brides was founded in 2006 by 16-year-old vocalist Andy Biersack. Today the only original member.

Since the beginning, BVB have been compared to Kiss for their painted faces, leather clothing and a lot of 70s movement. Musically they are another thing, listen to Failthless and you’ll know what I am talking about… “Modern” Heavy Metal .

In their debut year, they ranking at No. 36 on the Billboard Top 200 and the No. 1 on the Billboard Independent chart.
