Happy new year folks! Wish you all the best for 2016, especially tons of great new records, shows, new bands…whatever!

Since I grew up during the 00’s, COLD WORLD is a band that I saw coming to life, even though I wasn’t prepared for it in 2004 and couldn’t really appreciate it, as young as I was. The split with STRENGHT FOR A REASON was actually the album that made me discover how awesome the Wilkes-Barre band is. Since that time I started writing zines, or at least trying, and I wanted to do a COLD WORLD review, an interview or anything I could relate to this band.
I think this serie is the perfect place to do it. And I know many of you will get confused considering the records I did previously and how alive is this band. I’m saying that because some people believe if a band hadn’t split, you can cover them or consider them crucial yet, like you have to wait for it to be gone to praise them. Well, I’m gonna serve you with a band that’s alive and well and still kick the shit out many bands and surely deserve to be what I consider to be a crucial band with crucial records.
Now the band have put out a new release, on Deathwish Inc. Already a great records but still the best album they did is, for me, Dedicated To Babies Who Came Feet First. Let’s figure out why.
