Cold Colours are a band from Minnesota that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very depressive, atmospheric and gothic form of doom/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "MMXIV".
Clean and distorted playing start off the ep along with some melodic guitar leads which leads up to a heavier doom metal direction along with elements of 70's progressive rock and then blackened death metal screams start to become a part of the music along with some growls and they also mix the clean and heavy parts together.
Violins can be heard in the background at times and all of the musicla instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the band mixes in a lot of depressive melodies in their gothic approach to doom and death metal along with some black metal elements being utilized at times and the gothic metal parts sound even more powerful when the band goes into mid paced mode.
Cold Colours continue their depressive and melodic gothic doom/death metal sound of the previous album while also showing a great amount of growth as musicians, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark, depressive, nature and heathenism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Cold Colours and if you are a fan of depressive, gothic doom/death metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "From This Pain". 8 out of 10..
