Breaking out of Texas with a thunderous metal sound, ColdWards have been creating a massive buzz of late, taking on the independent circuit with drive, determination, and a titanic new single. A four-piece band built from the talents of drummer Paul Crosby (of Grammy-nominated, Gold and Platinum awarded Saliva), and his two sons, Zac and Sean, along with bass player Richie Hey, ColdWards deliver a powerhouse sound that is reshaping the course of modern metal.
Armed with a heavily percussive sound that layers cataclysmic riffs and sharp vocals with bold messages for today’s youth, the band have recently made their mark with the release of their new single ‘My Skeletons’, and today, we’re putting their modern metal anthem to the test.
Crafted from a dynamic blend of raucous musical arrangements and spiked melodic sounds, ‘My Skeletons’ lands with a fierce, engaging sound design that complements the vocal approach and lyrics perfectly. Wasting no time in making itself heard, the track is a wild ride from start to finish, lashing out with dark atmospherics, bold guitar lines, and heavy, relentless percussion. Executed with razor-sharp precision, everything about the track is perfectly placed, hitting the mark time and time again and carving out a unique path that perfectly illustrates the band’s talents.
Alongside the barbed instrumentals and dark anthemics, the production on the track is absolute class, offering a peeled back style that highlights the most raucous elements of the track. Supercharged with a surprising range and depth of sound, that track is instantly accessible for both die-hard and casual metal fans, making it an easy introduction to a very talented group.
Featuring a strong balance between lighter textured sounds and more brazen metal elements, ‘My Skeletons’ is an undeniable maelstrom of nu-metal-edged sound that will help you deal with the ghosts of your past.
