Candlelight Records is proud to announce the signing of Irish hardcore punks Coldwar! Debut Candlelight Records album coming 2014. Equally thrilled by the signing, Coldwar had this to say about it, “Coldwar are proud to announce that we have signed to Candlelight Records. We are very excited about our future with Candlelight and are honoured to be on a label with such a varied and talented collection of artists.” This is Coldwar with their latest recording ‘Pantheist’.
Listen to 'Heart Of Darkness' from the upcoming Coldwar album 'Pantheist'
Pantheism: The belief that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent God, or that the universe (or nature) is identical with divinity. Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal or anthropomorphic god.
The darkness of the soul, esoteric symbology, natural evil, scrutinization of the irregularity of the Gregorian calendar, the meltdown crisis point at which capitalist society presently finds itself, and the possible final gasp of our current ‘material age’, to pave way for a potential revolutionary shift in values-consciousness for a jaded humanity. These are some of the varied concepts with which Coldwar lyrically engage, in their latest anthology, and forth-coming release ‘Pantheist’.
Formed in 1999 in Dublin, Ireland, Coldwar are influenced by underground hardcore punk and extreme metal. Fuelled by a rejection of Church & State institutions and other oppressive, intolerant and absolutist states of mind.
To date, Coldwar have toured Ireland and the UK as well as having made several trips to Europe and the USA. The band have also played a number of festivals including Wacken Open Air (Germany), Obscene Extreme Festival (Czech Republic), Load As Fuck (USA), Day Of Darkness (Ireland), Up the Punks (UK), Cork Winter Fest (Ireland), Burning Oak Festival (Ireland), Subvert Festival (UK) and more.
Coldwar have shared the stage and toured alongside bands such as Fear Factory, Soulfly, Sepultura, EHG, Suffocation, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Discharge, Napalm Death and many more.
With four releases previous since their inception via Underground Movement each release has gained the band a growing fan base.
