Witterings from an old indie kid
Disasters seems to be the debut release from German post-punk band Cold. Opener The Evil Moon is the ideal track to grab your attention fusing fuzzy guitars and female vocals to great effect. There is a brief interlude with 37 seconds of what sounds like noises in a haunted cellar in the shape of //////////////////// before it’s followed by Ashes.
That too is an attention grabbing track which, like The Evil Moon before it, is due to the way the singer sings supplementing the power-pop/punk pop guitars and pounding drums. Both tracks are easily retained in the listener’s memory. That cannot be said about their cover of Cancerslug’s Bloodlust which comes across as a poor metal filler. Their own tracks are pretty good mind so let’s hope there are more in the works.
