AxeWound slice right through heavy metal with "Cold", the first single from Vultures, out October 2, 2012.
Featuring Bullet for My Valentine singer and guitarist Matt Tuck on the axe and Cancer Bats mainman Liam Cormier on lead vocals, the band stands out as the ultimate modern super group. Tuck's tight, tough, and technical riffing drives "Cold" with gusto and groove. He also adds pristine vocals on the hook that prove simply transfixing. Meanwhile, Cormier sounds out for blood screaming with unmitigated rage. Their styles fuse together perfectly for a corrosive combination that's downright badass.
Guitarist Mike Kingswood [Glamour of the Kill] matches Tuck perfectly, while bassist Joe Copcutt [Rise to Remain] and drummer Jason Bowld [Pitchshifter] lay down an utterly punishing percussive groove.
"Cold" is simply a prelude to Vultures though. Metal's new guard has come together, and blood will flow.
