Review: ColdSpell – A New World Arise

Escape Music (Sept 22nd 2017)

Reviewer: Stephen Brophy 

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Sweden’s ColdSpell, the last studio album ‘Frozen Paradise‘ was released in 2013, so four years on we welcome a new batch of Melodic Rock songs for our listening pleasure with ‘A New World Arise. This time around there are 12 tracks, each with their own character built in.

There is a maturity to these compositions, these are songs with substance and depth not just thrown together randomly, there is a hint of Progressive Metal at times, guitar work is excellent as always with this band, lots of intricate work from Michael fitting in perfectly with the other components on show. And no shortage of sharp spiralling solos, check out “Call Of The Wild”, on show as well.

The music and vocals are both as strong as ever from a very tightly knit unit that deserve to be heard by a wider audience, ColdSpell are one of those bands that rarely put a foot wrong but have yet to get the success they perhaps have deserved, hopefully this new album will go some way to remedying that.

This album starts off so strongly with three powerhouse tracks, ‘Forevermore‘, ‘Call Of The Wild‘ which is the debut video from the album, and the excellent ‘It Hurts‘. To be honest the rest of the songs follow on in the same vein, powerful, melodic and full of sustained high quality. Certainly not an album with fillers, a lot of hard work has clearly gone in here to ensure that the end product contains both variety and passion.

Pera (Drums) and Chris (Bass) are a formidable pairing, providing the backdrop for everything that’s on top of it. Just terrific work all around and what’s great is that after living with the album for a while, favourite tracks are not set in stone, it can range from almost ballad ‘Signs‘ to the very rocky ‘Forevermore‘ with sweeping guitar and that solid riff and drumming driving it along. Another day could easily bring up ‘It Hurts‘ which is brim full of emotion. The additional keyboards from special guests Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.) and Ged Rylands (Tyketto/Rage Of Angels) add that little extra dimension to some tracks.

If ColdSpell have not been on your radar until now, adjust your settings and sort that out, this is another terrific album from a band that really deserves huge success, excellent musicians that create top class music, this is for me one of the best Melodic Rock/Metal releases of 2017, dig into it and allow it to seep through your pores, well worth the time investment.

This is polished without losing the edge, clean without becoming in any way sterile, what a cracking job all around.

 

Coldspell is finally back! For the fourth time the band from the land of ice and snow up in the north of Sweden is going to bring the world 12 songs that will melt a rocking heart. Titled ‘A New World Arise‘ the band has captured emotions of a world going crazy and finding peace in the wilderness. The first single/video ‘Call of the Wild‘ is out now.

The album was recorded at various studios throughout Sweden and once again mixed by Tommy Hansen (Pretty Maids, Helloween, Jorn) and will be released in September 2017.

With three albums released so far the wait is over. Coldspell are ready to strike again with the brand new album titled “A New World Arise”. This is stunning recording that features 12 new songs of epic proportions and it’s going to put ColdSpell firmly on the map. This is Scandinavian melodic rock of the highest order and will be a strong contender for the hard rock album of 2017.

Coldspell

Swedish hard rockers ColdSpell are confirmed to support Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock for the Nordic leg of their Spirit on a Mission World tour dates. Michael Schenker is a true legend and to many the greatest guitar player around, winning awards, getting rave reviews for his albums and when touring the world.

ColdSpell is a rising star on the international stages. This summer they were one of the headliners at Scotland’s premier festival, Wildfire. And was warming up a US audience as runner‐up to Judas Priest at Rock Fest in Wisconsin.

Micke Larsson, guitarist and founder of ColdSpell, says ”Michael Schenker’s guitar playing was a great inspiration growing up and listening to UFO. The ’79 live album Strangers In The Night got spin after spin on the turntable, two got so many scratches so I am now on my third copy. It is great honour to share stage with Michael Schenker for these shows.”
