We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Cold Blooded’s new song “Forever War” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming full-length album Throne Burner, which is scheduled to be released through Blackhouse Records on July 21st. You can pre-order the album here.
Throne Burner is the musical culmination of the band’s cross-pollination of death-metal riffage, thrash drumming, grind tempos and punk attitude.
To further hone the sonic chaos the band enlisted Topon Das of avant-grind freaks Fuck The Facts to contribute several sound-collage interludes, as well as master the record.
Speaking on the album’s title and lyrical through-line for the songs, Cold Blooded vocalist Ethan Kennedy said the following: “In the past I wrote lyrics inspired by books or films that affected me. However with Throne Burner I started writing shortly before the presidential election and I knew no matter who won, a good deal of this country would be supremely pissed off and extremely divided. I wrote about all the negativity and violence in America and the influences that in turn has on our society. Some songs are from the perspective of someone directly affected by the violence, some deal with those of us viewing it in the media and even to the perspective of someone who wants to perpetrate the violence.”
