Cold's eponymous debut is a set of ugly, harsh post-alternative metal in the vein of Korn. The group concentrates on brutal, bleak riffing, instead of tight songwriting -- it's an album about texture, where the hard-hitting, post-thrash rhythms and the group's vaguely nihlistic undertone combine to form a scary, provocative succession of sound. Cold's songwriting isn't always great and they're too concerned with adolscent angst and horror ("Everyone Dies," "Insane," "Serial Killer," etc.), but the band's sound is fully formed, resutling in a strong debut.

This CD is great. THE SWITCH is one of the best songs ever made by Cold aside from ''Sick of Man'' and ''Gone Away.''
It's funny how this cd could very well be a cult classic. For instance, it's it's the best (in my opinion) grunge cd I've ever heard! And it's a self-titled debut without being commercialized. Normally, that's not a good thing, but this album is just filled with emotion! At points they have you wallowing in self-pity, while others your screaming with anger. Eventually, the also move to sadness. Buy this album!
This has to be one of my favorite albums. It's just so raw sounding without being screamo. Scooter Ward, you are my hero, pal. He obviously knows how to stir up emotions lyrically. I guess that's the great thing about music. Atleast good music anyways. "I guess it just got cold in here."
extremelly emoitanal music. a little more of a raw sound when compared to 13 ways, but equally as captivating. much heavier tracks then the new album- but somw well written and intelligently placed acoustic songs. deals wonderfully with addiction both physical and emotional. scooter ward does a tremendous job of pulling the listener in and giving them a grand tour of a not so great lived life. a must have for any true rock fan
