Swedish band Coldspell released their fourth album “A New World Arise” through Escape Music on 22nd September. It has been 4 years since the release of their previous album “Frozen Paradise” in 2013 and the band have returned with another great melodic hard rock offering. I included the track "Forevermore" on the Friday NI Rocks Show this week.




Coldspell formed in 2005 and released their debut album “Infinite Stargaze” in 2009. That was followed by “Out From The Cold” in 2011 and “Frozen Paradise” in 2013 – I posted a recommendation for the latter at that time – http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/back-stage/music-reviews/1340-ni-rocks-recommends-qfrozen-paradiseq-by-coldspell.html


The line-up has changed a little over the years, but the current members of the band are Michael Larsson on guitars, Niclas Svedentorp on vocals, Chris Goldsmith on bass and Per Johansson on drums. There are guest appearances on keyboards from Jona Tee of H.E.A.T (and the Martina Edoff band who also released an album on 22nd Sept) and Ged Rylands from Tyketto and Rage of Angels.

There are 12 tracks on the album – some of my favourites would include “Forevermore”, “Call of the Wild”, “Love Me Like You Do” and “Get To The Top”.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!

My musical tastes cover most things rock; from the not too melodic to the not too heavy. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows on Rock Radio NI.
