The Cold View is the Drone Doom / Funeral Doom Metal project of A.A.S.. The Cold View plays slow Funeral Doom Metal with deep growls. Even though The Cold View has developed it's own style, every fan of Esoteric, Thergothon, Ahab, Shape of Despair, Evoken, Skepticism or Mournful Congregation should check it out.
The fourth album Born Banished Beaten Broken Buried with nearly 60 minutes running time got mixed and mastered by Greg Chandler at legendary Priory Studios. The concept album is dealing with existential questions; the circle of life and death, the isolation of beeing an individual, the suffering of beeing alive. Musically the album shows a new side of The Cold View regarding composition, pace, rhythm and dynamics. The artwork was created by Northem Art. Bass guitar and drums were recorded by J. Laass and C. Herrmann at Blockstudio, Berlin. All music and lyrics were created by A.A.S. (The Cold View).
The third concept album Wounds with more than 70 minutes running time got finished in the second half of the year 2016. With Wounds the final chapter of the album trilogy got completed. The new album deals with the emotional injury and healing of a human being. The first two albums took a personal and a neutral perspective. Now the cold view is directed outwards to the fellow human beings. Musically and compositionally the 6 songs of the third album are the most dynamic works of The Cold View.
The first two albums Wires of Woe, Ways of Waste and Weeping Winter were released as CD digipak and as digital download on Bandcamp. Other highlights in the history of The Cold View are the collaboration with the Funeral Doom legend Pantheist and the split-album Songs of Deepest Skies with the French project Abysmal Growls of Despair.
The Cold View is dedicated to Funeral Doom Metal with an underlying share of Drone buzz. Deepest growls, desperate keyboard passages and oppressive guitars form a sound that is urged to emphasize the hopelessness of the human existence which has been torn off from the world of nature.
