Cold Colours is album #4 from the band of the same name that, despite the British spelling, hails from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The vocals are mainly Death growls with some Black rasps and clear singing thrown in, the latter being the weakest of the bunch. The music isn't very thrashy and there is relatively little tremolo picking, rather the songwriting seems based in a Traditional/Doom style with lots of pounding riffs and a good mix of tempos. The first few songs are quite entertaining with the guitars and vocals creating a thundering wall of sound that washes over you in huge waves. The second half of the album, minus the cover of Rotting Christ's "Cold Colours," is less engaging. There are more attempts at atmosphere and more clear singing that isn't bad, but isn't great, either. Cold Colours succeeds in being a bit different from typical Death Metal and for that is worth a spin if you are looking for a break from the norm.
