Biography

Jacksonville, Florida (1998 – 2006, 2009 – present)

There are at least 10 artists called “Cold”.

Cold [1] are from Jacksonville, Florida, USA. With the release of their self-titled debut, “Cold,” in 1998, the band quickly became known for its angsty lyrics and the singer’s distinctive voice. “Cold” has obvious touches of grunge, but on the following album, “13 Ways to Bleed on Stage,” Cold changed towards a more ambivalent, and in some ways, alternative hard rock with slightly calmer, angst inspired songs. Since their early work, Cold has moved closer to plain rock, heavily inspired by lead singer Scooter Ward’s dark lyrics and sorrowful sound. Cold released a third album titled “Year of the Spider” that moved them closer to mainstream rock as well as mainstream success. Cold collaborated with game developer and publisher Midway to produce an exclusive song titled “With My Mind” for the 2004 video game Psi - Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy. Their fourth release “A Different Kind Of Pain” moves more-so in the direction of dark, emotional lyrics. This album was released on August 30th, 2005.

Cold is rumored to have always been able to illicit very close and emotional feelings amongst its fans, which has resulted in a very tight fan base nicknamed the “Cold Army,” an obvious Kiss reference in and of itself. Lead singer Scooter Ward is in close contact with certain Cold fans via the band’s official homepage and forum, which is run and moderated by a former fan.

Former members of Cold include guitarist Terry Balsamo, who left the band after a joint tour to replace Ben Moody of Evanescence, and Kelly Hayes, who left the band amid turmoil over its future in music and in the music industry itself.
