Everything Goes Cold – VS. General Failure (CD Bitriot Records)Posted on 05/03/10
Eric Gottesman who set up Everything Goes Cold gained some experienced being member of bands like Psyclon Nine, Deathline International or yet Ayria. The style of Everything Goes Cold has more to be searched in the two first bands. I think we here can make some comparisons although I experience the songs as much more aggressive. We can speak about a solid crossover style where guitars and electronics are like fighting in a kind of duel. The guitars are often ending as the winner although the electronic parts are an essential ingredient. The electronic sections are mainly persuasive while the guitar power adds a feeling of rage. The vocals are even more enraged, making me think of hunting an animal. Guitars and vocals together create an easy recognizable American style, which might remind you of legendary ‘industrial’ bands. But the vocals are also quite punk-like and that’s what makes the difference with a band like Ministry (to name one). This punk-touch is quite particular and even sounds like a real trademark for the band. Another particularity for this album is the contribution of several guest musicians. Daniel Myer is for sure the most unexpected one doing some guest vocals on “Don’t Quit Your Day Job”. This is one of the more electro-minded pieces and a quite efficient cut as well. Guitarist James Perry from Deathline Int is another guest on the album. Another surprise is the banjo played by Gottesman on the “I’ve Sold Your Organs On The Black Market To Finance The Purchase Of A Used Minivan”. This is an instrument I didn’t exactly expected on such a heavy piece of music, but don’t expect a sweet ballad. Every Goes Cold remains heavy and merciless with a constant punk attitude. I guess this is the kind of band that will be more appreciated on the American market, but I’m sure some tough Europeans will be pleased as well.
