When a band lists Trap Them and At the Gates as influences in the bio section of their Facebook page, it gets my attention. The artist in question here is Cold Blooded, a Washington-based outfit that certainly an other music outlet favorably compared to Obituary, and while I can certainly hear that, I'm also detecting some metallic hardcore leanings in there.
Last summer, Cold Blooded issued their debut album, the ominously titled Throneburner, a brutal collection of tracks made all the more frightening thanks to a series of ambient/noise interludes contributed by Fuck the Facts guitarist Topon Das. One of the highlights of the record is a song called "Forever War," and the band just dropped a music video for it.
Directed by Tyler James Rosenbaum and filmed in the group's hometown of Spokane, the performance-driven clip is a great way to introduce Cold Blooded to anyone who might have missed the release of Throneburner last year.
