3rd Album: WOUNDS

8,5/10 - Doom-metal.com: "It's cleverly done and well-executed, offering a very effective balance between challenge and reward throughout, and a distinct stride forward for the band. Highly recommended, even if Funeral Doom isn't generally your thing."

The third concept album Wounds with more than 70 minutes running time got finished in the second half of the year 2016. With Wounds the final chapter of the album trilogy got completed. The new album deals with the emotional injury and healing of a human being. The first two albums took a personal and a neutral perspective. Now the cold view is directed outwards to the fellow human beings. Musically and compositionally the 6 songs of the third album are the most dynamic works of The Cold View.

Collaboration of The Cold View for Pantheist

Pantheist - The Cold View - Events


While legendary Doom Metal band Pantheist is working on their new record, band leader Kostas Panagiotou is writing the concept story for the album. Each chapter of the story called "Events" is accompanied by a song. The Cold View was asked by Kostas to contribute some Drone guitars for the third chapter song Warping the Space-time Continuum.

Kostas is saying about the collaboration: "A few words about the track 'Warping the Space-Time Continuum' that accompanies the third chapter of the concept story. It is a drone piece recorded with the help of A.A.S. from The Cold View, a funeral/drone project from Germany which just released its second album. The track features church organ, drone guitar, keyboards and samples of Russian basso profundo singing. as ever, we are grateful for the collaboration and thank A.A.S. for the time and (dark) energy he invested in this recording."

The third chapter When Fire is Father is illustrated by a drawing of Pantheist's long-term visual collaborator Cheryl Panagiotou.

2nd Album: Wires of Woe, Ways of Waste

10/10 - Vendetta Metal Magazine: "'Wires…' is not a funeral doom album anymore. A.A.S. has redefined that genre which I, henceforth, shall call Vantadoom."

Funeral Doom: The Cold View Wires of Woe, Ways of Waste Cover


The Drone / Funeral Doom album Wires of Woe, Ways of Waste by The Cold View is available as limited CD digipak with 8-page booklet at Bandcamp and the label shop of Endless Winter. The digital release is exclusively available at Bandcamp.

The concept album is dealing with the dead end that the modern world is facing. The human existence is loosing identity, mind and soul in exchange with materialism, technology and social alienation.

The album contains the four songs Wires, Woe, Ways and Waste. Each song has a running time of over 15 minutes, so the album features over 60 minutes of slow, crushing and drony Funeral Doom.

The Cold View got very good reactions for the second album from both Doom fans and Metal media. For reading of some of their thoughts just head over to the review section.
