The Cold View is a drone/funeral doom metal project from Germany, that released their sophomore record earlier in 2014, called Wires of Woe, Ways of Waste, via Endless Winter.
As the name suggests, The Cold View’s music feels like a cold, sober look on loneliness, desperation and life’s darkness. The new album is slow, dark, atmospheric, but perceived from a more neutral point of view than the more esoteric previous album, poring over the materialistic modern society and the negativity a greedy, physical world has over humanity’s presence.
If you live in a big city, score your next walk through it with Wires of Woe, Ways of Waste and take in the alienation. As much as something like this would be disturbing, it would feel liberating as well.
