COLD COLOURS – MMXIV ep (CD)
Now, this is doom metal the way it was meant to played, with melodic, heavy dirge-filled rhythms and harmonies. The vocals are rough, but you can understand as to what is being said without putting too much strain on your ears. The mid-tempo drumming is just perfect for Cold Colours’ sound, with a steady pace, their songs just grab your attention, make you feel miserable, and leave you begging for more of this doom metal tragedy.
The band come across very solid and play with tons of conviction, which also makes for a rich listening experience because you become apart of their tragic story. You’ll feel their sorrow-laden emotions so much, you’ll most likely collapse into a brief state of utter depression. Don’t worry, you’ll not be forced to take Prozac as “MMXIV” is just as effective in reversing the mind altering, psychotic side effects of their music.
The only complaint I’ve here is that this ep is short for a Doom metal release, so, on this note, I’m sure their future full length release is going to be brilliant and lengthy. If you want your doom metal with skillfully written guitar harmonies, heavy rhythm sections, rough and clean vocals, look no farther because Cold Colours will satisfy that depressive dark metal thirst within your feverishly dehydrated soul.
