COLDSPELL’s “Out From The Cold” released on February 25th 2011

Coldspell are an exciting new band based in the north of Sweden. They were formed in 2005 by guitarist and songwriter Michael Larsson, who was previously with the band R.A.W., a band that recorded two albums in the 90’s with members from Dalton and Kicken (Poodles) on drums.

Together with four other experienced musicians the band Coldspell are ready to impress you with their own brand of hard rock. The band took the world by storm with their “Infinate Stargaze” release (ESM184), a recording that draws influences from a mixture of everything they grew up with from the groove of the 70’s to the choruses and melodies of the 80’s, mixed with the raw and naked excitement of the 90’s, not forgetting the production expertise of the millennium.

Coldspell’s debut CD has already created a stir in rock circles, and they have a nice crisp guitar sound that can be compared to Gotthard, Malmsteen and Whitesnake but with melodies and a rich rhythm section that smacks of Treat and Dalton. Songs like “Keep on Believin’”, “Eye of the Storm” and “Shot Down” won fans over time and time again. The album received stunning reviews all over the world and was on several album “toplists” for 2009 and album of the year at rockrealms.com. (category “heavy, hard and melodic rock”).

Here we are two years later and a brand new release “Out from the Cold”, once again mixed by Tommy Hansen in Denmark, Tommy of course having previously worked with Helloween, TNT, Pretty Maids, Jorn and Pagan’s Mind. Well, why change a winning formula?! What we have here are 12 tracks of hard rock excellence that take the band to new heights. The core of Niklas Swedentorp on vocals, Michael Larssen on Guitars and vocals and Matti Eklund on keyboards and vocals remains the same, but in come new members Perra Johanson (ex Crawley, Lost Souls) on drums and Anders “kebbe” Lindmark joins on Bass (ex Dalton / RAW).
