† And then the Curse swept the Earth

Formed in late 99. Coldwar started out mixing equal parts hardcore punk and extreme metal into an angry incendiary assault. They have shared stage with bands like Sepultura, Suffocation, Discharge, Converge, Exploited, GBH, Napalm Death amongst many others . "Christus Deathshead" is the fourth release from the band, it is a concept album dealing with global issues gelled together with a biblical revelations theme, advanced military complex, far right Christian propaganda, global warfare, economics and politics. 

Musically speaking, Coldwar plays a mix of a thrashy death metal with some crust and sometimes grind attitude, it sounds something between Sepultura and Acephalix with bits of Discharge. The album itself is a short one, but showing the band deliver a pissed-off and aggressive sonic assault. The drumming is rather relentless and hellish, supplemented by some killer riffs and equally ferocious vocals. "Christus Deathshead" is definitely an album that is worth of your attention, as there’re no gimmicks, no imitations or compromise. This is a straight-up-your-face assault challenging both your ears and your brain.
