COLDWORKER
COLDWORKER
The Contaminated Void
(Relapse Records)
39:44min

A lot of people out there will regard Anders Jacobson's new band as heir to NASUM. A fact, which is on the one hand traceable, since he wrote half of the songs on NASUM's masterpiece "Shift". But on the other hand NASUM and the genius of Mieszko Talarczyk belonged together, otherwise Mr. Jakobson would have simply kept the name NASUM after the tragic death of Mieszko. So let's be fair and look upon COLDWORKER not as some kind of NASUM 2.0, but as an unique band. Although all members of COLDWORKER have been active in other Metal outfits, it is quite amazing that this release only took the time of about five months to be recorded! In January 2006 A. Jakobson started searching musicians for a new band, and in June the same year they did their first live show and began recording their debut. Death Metal, mixed with Grindcore, may give a rough description of "The Contaminated Void". The riffs tend more to the typical American Death Metal, in fact the decent listener may find similar guitar work for instance on the latest CANNIBAL CORPSE or IMMOLATION releases. Additionally typical Grind riffs and some fine melodies are added, a good resource against boredom. The vocalist could, from my point of view, be a little more flexible, because he is just deep grunting all the time. Not really bad, but also nothing spectacular. All songs are played fast or very fast, the structure of the most songs (i.e. breaks and playing time) has a tendency more to Grind or Metal Core than the above mentioned American Death Metal. Dan Swanö produced the album, so you know what to expect - a killer sound. www.coldworker.com.
