If the debut album and ArtRocker Album Of The Year ‘Give Me Walls’ was dark and spiky, the follow up sounds like a solid black wall of sonic death. Darker, heavier, slower, faster, better. Haunting vocals over massive drums. Driving bass versus eerie guitar lines. Choral chants of historical reenactment. Detuned pianos, an Ebow and even a guitar solo!
Cold in Berlin broke of out the east london scene to play Offset festival, tour in Europe and share stages with bands as diverse as The Chapman Family, Diary Of Dreams and Mater Susperia Vision. Still skint, heart broken and living on the fringes of society and acceptance, it is clear that alternative cultures romantic vision of DIY purity is no longer an option.
Cold In Berlin play Upstairs at The Garage on 7th September. Supporting will be Terminal Gods and Partly Faithful.
