Fred Durst once again discovers a band that has made it big. But don't let
that scare you, if you didn't read it somewhere, it's very hard to tell that
Fred was involved at all. Cold returns with their sophomore album dedicated
to Raul Espinosa. From the dark, loud, gloomy sound of No One, End Of The
World and most of the other songs, to the quiet and sad guitar playing of
Bleed, this album is definately worth the small price tag that is.. or was,
attached to it. Scooter's vocals are simply amazing, some may complain about
not being able to understand him but in my view it doens't really matter,
it's just relaxing to listen to his voice. Even when he yells and screams you
can still hear the pain in his voice, such in the lines of Confession: "Now
she's old, she's been blessed, take a bow and confess, she threw it all away,
my angel died that day, no one came, no one cared. You think you're half as
good as me, the only thing you'll ever be.. is just a way for me to bleed on
this...stage."
The album isn't really a "happy" one, every song is meant to fill you with
the singer's (or maybe band's) sadness and depression, but at the same time
makes you smile because of the amazing sound of the band playing and the
singer's voice. The album goes from quiet to loud a lot, and the final song
is just beautiful. A very mellow guitar, very sad and depressed vocals which
describe how Scooter would be nothing without music, and Aaron Lewis singing
quietly in the background. Perhaps working on this song inspired him to do
the song "OutSide," which is on the Family Values '99 CD. Although, there's
the problem.. I think OutSide was done before Bleed.. maybe it was the other
way around. Oh well, I don't know.. I do know that both songs are amazing and
worth your money alone. Aaron Lewis goes with Scooter so well it sounds like
the exact same person, Staind and Cold touring together would be a great
idea. Perhaps on the next Family Values tour. Oh, and Staind is or did
re-record a studio version of Outside for their upcoming album, Break The
Cycle, and if you ask me, having Scooter do the backup vocals instead of Fred
Durst is a very good idea. Hey, they even look somewhat alike.. well okay,
they both have no hair... kinda like Fred Durst!

Ooooh that looked painful. The ass is now in the air and it doesn't look like
it will land anytime soon. 9.
Cold is definately one of the hottest bands on the scene today and are very
much worth your money if you're a deep person who likes music with a dark
sound.

Did You Know?
Cold is another one of Fred Durst discoveries, along with Staind. Staind lead
singer Aaron Lewis is also found lurking around in the background of this
album.
