Coldrain's new album 'The Revelation' is out now through Hopeless Records. Here's what we made of it
Having signed to Hopeless just a few months ago, Coldrain’s third effort finally sees the band do what they’ve been threatening to since they surfaced in their native Japan, and cast their net worldwide. With the quality to fuse a mature, melodic approach with their ear for a clean and catchy chorus (‘Given Up On You’), the Nagoya-based quintet make it virtually impossible to simply sit still and listen. Chuck in the more venomous, metalcore-esque sections (the title track), not to mention the odd ripping solo (‘Time Bomb’), and there’s enough variation here to formally introduce Coldrain to the world.
