Song of the Week – Cold


Last night I just happen to come across the video for this song, Cold, by AxeWound. I read about this collaboration band a while back; if you never heard of them they are basically members of Cancer Bats (Liam Cormier), Buller For My Valentine (Matt Tuck), Rise To Remain (Joe Copcutt), Glamour of the Kill (Mike Kingswood), and Pitchshifter (Mike Bowld).  I don’t believe any of these bands are on hiatus or defunct, AxeWound was started as a side project and as far as I can tell, still is.  I read recently that BFMV have finished recording their next album which means we will probably see it in stores in about 3-4 months.

As far as the song goes, it sounds pretty good to me, pretty straightforward metal as far as I am concerned and worth a little more exploring. Their debut album is going to be released October 1st, and I am sure I will be picking that one up which means you will see it reviewed shortly thereafter.  Have a great Wednesday and enjoy the Song of the Week – Cold – AxeWound.

New Band Alert: AxeWound


I have been reading about this band AxeWound for some time now.  I saw they were put in a good position at Download Festival (different day than when I went), so I thought I would finally give them a spin.  Their two main members hail from Bullet For My Valentine and Cancer Bats – Matt Tuck and Liam Cormier respectively.  I am a fan of BFMV, but not too familiar with Cancer Bats.  Either way, the article I just read on my digital copy of Metal Hammer featured an article about them and it promised to be heavier than what both BFMV and Cancer Bats creates in their bands.  Matt Tuck of BFMV stated that AxeWound is heavier than anything he could or should so in his main band, so this is a nice side-gig for him to express his musical desires.   That was enough to sell on getting my butt to YouTube for a listen.
