COLD AS LIFE

Demos 95-97 LP Backside

I think Cold As Life is a band that needs no introduction, because for several decades they represented the most sincere and brutal sound straight from the streets of Detroit. 

Formed in the late 1980s, they tragically lost their original singer Rawn Beuty ( RIP ) who was murdered in 1992. With Rawn on vocals they recorded a couple of excellent demos, a little more punk and oi influenced than the new direction the band was soon taking after the changes suffered as a result of his loss, when Jeff Gunnels assumed the role of singing as well as playing guitar. In 1998 they would release one of the best hardcore albums of the 90s, Born to land hard.
The Demos 95-97 LP brings together the two demos that they released the previous years to Born to land hard, in which you could already see the new, even more brutal and metal path that the band was taking. Side A of the album includes the demo from 1995, with songs still reminiscent of their early era, still with some OI sound on it like the song Addicted , and on side B the demo of 1997, a new step for the band into the most brutal and metallic hardcore sound a band could get, clear the roots of what their first album Born to land hard was gonna be.
