Discover: Cold DrivenVicki
Cold Driven were a hard rock band from Armstrong, Canada. I say ‘were’ because it was disappointing they disappeared from the radar in 2011. With three releases to their name – Set In Stone (2005), Steel Chambers (2007), The Wicked Side of Me EP (2011) – for me, the most stand out by far was their last.
The Wicked Side of Me EP is a bittersweet release. From the film score-esque ‘Intro’ track to the double kick filled ‘Rise of the Broken’, there is a good mix of of punchy riffage and melodic vocals. It’s definitely their best work to date, but sadly the last we’re likely to hear.
Not to gloss over their earlier releases, as their track ‘Heavier than Heaven’ is also great.
