COLDUN | COLLAPSING POLARITIES [GERMAN DOOM METAL] REVIEW BY LUKE HAYHURST

393860

I’d have to say that the very first thing that struck me about German doom lords Coldun is their vocalist who if not the lead singer of the Crash Test Dummies is at least his vocal twin!

Okay with that pop music walk down memory lane behind us I can move onto “Collapsing Polarities”, Coldun’s sophomore opus and an absolute must own when it’s finally released at the start of 2014!

Mesmerizing is the vocal talent on offer and around this is an enviable shroud of deep melodic texture.  Soon to be released by Northern Silence Productions, a label who really do know about quality in my opinion, “Collapsing Polarities” is a passionate display of wonderful technical prowess, sublime song craft and beautiful soaring melodies and harmonies!

If the cavernous roar of Coldun’s guitar solos don’t hook you, his “Mmm Mmm Mmm” like voice will! I haven’t heard a singer in Metal with a voice this gripping since the late Pete Steele and that is very high praise.

[9/10]
