Hardcore quartet Cold Mass return with a self-titled third album.
Cold Mass sure know how to make sulfuric guitars, sledgehammer drums, and throat-pulverizing yowls sound fun; a menacing groove animates the band’s music, rendering it neck-snappingly, arm-flailingly danceable. Cold Mass III opener “Bring the Chairs Closer to the Casket” twists itself around a series of gnarled rhythms like a snake crushing its prey. A track that invokes the specter of death overflows with furious, rampaging life.
