Product Description



Though Cold's music has become more melodic and accessible, that doesn't mean that they've turned over a new leaf. Scratch the surface and you'll find these Florida soreheads are still mad at the world, but happily able to channel that rage into compelling, brainy head-banging. In fact, it wouldn't be going too far to call them post-alt-metal Beck, what with their collage of disparate sounds and effects and their self-referential declarations, mimicking the diminutive singer's early outings: "I'm a loner / I'm a loser / I'm a winner in my own mind / I'm a bad one / I'm a good one / I'm a sick one with a smile." But they're not just a hardened bunch of nihilists. Their bleak worldview is rescued by a staunch sense of self and the quaint but sweet notion of the healing power of love. The affection of a good, but flawed woman is pervasive on the album's 13 tracks. With Scooter Ward's powerful vocals, inventive guitar interplay, and Sam McCandless' nonstop primal bashing, Cold, after 15 years together, are outshining mentors Limp Bizkit. --Jaan Uhelszki

Cold are a band that have been bubbling under the mainstream for the longest time now. They are well-known for their modern-rock radio hits like "No One," "Bleed/Thirteen" and "Gone Away," but have yet to reach their true peak. With 'Year Of The Spider,' Cold come through, both commercially and creatively. With a sound that is accessible, yet unique, Cold are definitely one of the few modern-rock bands that will be around, long after their biggest hits have been played out. "Stupid Girl," the first single, co-written by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, is a nice change of pace for the band. Not only is it catchy, but it is one of the few relatively bright spots on the album. Other songs like "Remedy" and "Suffocate" are some nice, heavy additions to Cold's catalogue, and will no doubt fare well as singles themselves. However, what I have discovered with this CD is that the further you go into it, the more emotional and thoughtful it gets. "Sad Happy" is sort of a revenge song about a fan who was raped by her dad constantly; "Rain Song" is about a close-friend committing suicide. There is also more of a religious theme flowing through this album than in previous releases, mainly evidenced by the track "Cure My Tragedy." This album is dark, personal, honest, passionate and everything in between. Cold have yet to put out a bad album. Everything they do is 100% quality, and as a longtime fan, I am happy to see they are finally getting the recognition they deserve. The limited edition comes with a satisfying DVD, which contains the music video & making of the music video for "Stupid Girl," several live performances (a few acoustic), interviews with all the band members, making of the album and more. Definitely a worthy purchase for any Cold fan. As for the album itself, everyone will love it. Cold fans, old and new, can all appreciate it. Kudos to Cold for putting out something inspiring and thoughtful, all the while managing to be successful.

Cold has done it again. They never dissapoint. The songwriting is real mature and a great step up from 13 or Cold. This is possibly one of the two best cd's for 2003 (The other one being Staind's 14 Shades of Grey). Here is a rundown of the tracks.
1. Remedy- Great cd opener. A little weak in the middle but overall a worthy opener. 9.9/10.
2. Suffocate- One of the best songs on the cd. The girl singing only adds to the song and not detracts like one reviewer thinks. 10/10.
3. Cure My Tragedy (A Letter To God)- Beautiful guitars and Scooter is top notch on the singing. 10/10.
4. Stupid Girl- Their first single and not a bad one at that. Usually when groups release their first single, it is [crummy]. Not with Cold. Every track could be a single but it is great that this song is the first. 10/10.
5. Don't Belong- The song that most relates to my life so i take pride in this song. Everything about it is excellent. 10/10.
6. Wasted Years- Great song with great lyrics. 9.5/10.
7. Whatever You Became- Another hit. You can't go wrong with this song. 10/10.
8. Sad Happy- Possible the best song on this cd. Very emotional and you can totally relate, no matter what. 100/10
9. Rain Song- Good Guitars and drums. The lyrics are great. Really pulls on the emotions. I love this type of music from Cold. 100/10.
10. The Day Seattle Died- The memories of Kurt Cobain and Layne Stanley will live on in the hearts of each and every music fan. Cold did possibly the BEST tribute of all time to two of the greatest, most talented signers of all time. 100/10.
11. Change The World- Good song. 'Nuff said. 10/10
12. Black Sunday- Same here. 'Nuff said. 10/10.
13. Kill The ...

I am absolutely AMAZED by Cold's new album, "The Year of the Spider." While I enjoyed their last album, I have to say that this one is ten times better. "The Year of the Spider" is a powerful and addicting album from start to finish.
These guys have improved on every front when it comes to their music. The lyrics are emotionally charged and sincere, leaving you humming the words in your head even long after the CD is done playing. The guitar and drum playing has also improved, making every song flow in the best possible way. And all of the 13 songs that appear on this album are EXCELLENT.
While I love every song on the CD, there are a couple that I listen to the most. Those would be "suffocate," "cure my tragedy," "wasted years," "rain song," "change the world," and "the day seattle died." "Cure my tragedy" and "wasted years" have to be the two most powerful and emotionally charged songs on the album.
If you are a fan of Cold's past albums, then chances are that you will fall in love with this one as well. I have to say that I am quite impressed. This could be my favorite CD to come out this year so far. If you're looking for honest and sincere music that can actually speak to you, then look no further. Because you have found it. Cold's "Year of the Spider" is this band's best work as of now.

It is a shame I didn't get this album when it first came out, but I suppose any time is better than no time at all. Allow me to go into how I actually FINALLY got turned on to Cold's unique, and spooky sound. Let's just say that a friend of mine showed me a link to a fan made "Animated Music Video" or AMV from a place called YouTube.com, it was one set to a Rammstein song, and it did kick ass. However, I felt like seeing what was on there for Fatal Frame, so I typed that in, watched a few of the videos there, wasn't exactly impressed. But then a video titled with the caption "Pray For Rain" tantalized me.

What was it you ask? It was a video using in-game clips from Fatal Frame III: The Tormented set to "Rain Song", which happened to be on this album and I didn't realize it at the time. As I listened to the song and watched the video, I was just completely and utterly blown away. Not only by the music, but by how this person was able to capture the emotion of both the music and the video at the same time. I was absolutely moved to tears by the whole thing.

I immediately contacted this person and thanked them for making that video, and finally really getting me into Cold. I used to think of them as "just another Staind clone", and lemme tell you folks, I HATE Staind, so essentially these guys were associated with them in my books (they are good friends after all), but oh how wrong I was. Unlike Staind, they are emotional but without being ridiculously depressing, and in my books they're much better musicians too.

I was so impressed that I decided to buy "13 Ways to Bleed on Stage" and "Year of the Spider" in one fell swoop.
