KING have spent the last two years painstakingly writing Coldest Of Cold with supreme focus and vision on forging black metal of the most monumental scale. As evidenced on their debut album Reclaim The Darkness, KING have a master's grasp on creating music that evokes the scathing and pristine art of their forebears, such as Immortal and Satyricon. They inject it with even more triumphant melodic elements and dynamics, giving it an immense musical and emotional scope. Coldest Of Cold takes that initial statement of intent and expands on it. No less grandiose and magnificent. With this album, KING have looked into the heart of darkness and delivered a truly savage and callous piece of work, even more richly evocative and transportive. With a stronger drive toward gripping hooks and charging choruses, none of the subtlety and nuance has been sacrificed. The melodies and composition of these new songs are still carrying the beauty and awe of Reclaim The Darkness, but the emotional journey delves deeper into the bleak abyss while never forsaking the reverence of nature and the veneration of the spirit.
Coldest Of Cold is without doubt a darker and more attacking album, packed start to finish with one anthem after another. Still uplifting, but less of a 'raise the flag, troops' rallying-cry and more of a 'this must be done and I will be obeyed' decree of a KING who has seen too much and knows that the path to glory will first lead through hell. This KING is a tyrant of necessity with ice in his veins and the burden of a vulnerable world on his shoulders.
