About Cold

Alternative metal outfit Cold started out by sharing the aesthetic of Limp Bizkit, another band that came from Florida. Both groups favored technically complex, bleak, and brutal metal that merged elements of Jane's Addiction, Metallica, and Tool, but Cold also embraced elements of shoegaze and soaring, Snow Patrol-esque alternative rock. Bizkit frontman Fred Durst actually discovered Cold playing in the Jacksonville area and helped them sign to the A&M subsidiary Flip. Emerging in 1998, the band caught fire in the early 2000s with the albums 13 Ways to Bleed on Stage (2000) and Year of the Spider (2003), both of which were certified gold. Cold went on hiatus in 2006, but re-formed a few years later and released two studio albums during the 2010s.
