The Cold View are a 1 man band from Germany that plays a mixture of drone and funeral doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Weeping Winter".
Drum programming is all slow beats, while the synths bring a very dark and depressive ambient sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful tone with primitive drone/funeral doom riffing that dominates through out the recording.
Guitars are all absent from this recording, while the vocals are mostly deep funeral doom growls mixed in with some black metal screams on the last song while the lyrics are a concept album about the winter, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion The Cold View are a very great sounding mixture of drone and funeral doom metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Grey January" and "Mournful March". RECOMMENDED BUY.
