Introducing to Australia, Swedish melodic hard rock band Coldspell!
Coldspell are based in the north of Sweden and were formed in 2005 by guitarist and songwriter Michael Larsson. Since their first release back in 2009, ColdSpell have been one of the most talked about bands in Europe when mentioning high class Scandi hard rock. The band has released four albums so far, and all albums have received stunning reviews from leading hardrock webzines, magazines and radio shows all around the world including The Rockpit who have named their last two releases as rock albums of the year.
Coldspell blasted onto the scene in 2009 with their own brand of hard rock/metal. They first took the world by storm with their “Infinite Stargaze” release, an album that created a stir in rock circles and the album received stunning reviews all over the world and was on several album “top lists” for 2009 and album of the year at various magazine´s and radio stations. Two years later in 2011 a brand new release “Out from the Cold” was put out to an eager audience, once again mixed by Tommy Hansen in Denmark, Tommy known for his work with such acts as Helloween, TNT, Pretty Maids, Jorn and Pagan’s Mind.
In 2013 Coldspell put out a new recording entitled “Frozen Paradise”, once again with Tommy Hansen at the mixing desk. This was an unbelievable recording and the band have extended their expertise with razor sharp riffs, solid rhythms and great choruses. Now with three albums released, the wait is over. Coldspell are ready to strike again with their latest album titled “A New World Arise”, released on September 22nd 2017, a stunning recording that features 12 new songs of epic proportions cementing ColdSpell firmly on the rock n roll map. This is Scandinavian melodic rock of the highest order and will be a strong contender as a classic rock album in the future.
The band’s latest single, ‘It Hurts‘ was released as a video on May 31st 2018 which features a live performance of the band at the Rock City Stockholm Festival on April 28th, capturing the very essence of Coldspell in it’s purest form – live on stage! The single comes off the latest album “A New World Arise” which is out now via Escape Music. Watch the video below:

ColdSpell have made a great impact as a live act over the years. During 2014 they played Hard Rock Hell in the UK and Väsby Rock Festival in Sweden before heading to the the US in May and the UK in March and November, on top of select gigs in their home country of Sweden. In 2015 they headlined Scotland’s premier rock festival, Wildfire Festival and scored a top spot at US festival Rock Fest in July. Their hometown also got a visit at Kirunafestivalen in Sweden under the northern light in June 2015 and 2016 saw the band share the stage with Michael Schenker in the Nordic capitals.
Coldspell are ready to crack the Australian market and hope to gather as much interest as possible among the Aussie fans. With rock still a viable force down under, there’s a lot of excitement to finally see Coldspell bring some Scandinavian rock firepower to the masses!
