Coldworker – The Contaminated Void (2006)

I caught Coldworker’s last ever show, I think at probably OEF 2013. At the time I thought to myself, “Shit, I never checked out the Contaminated Void!”. Several years later then, it’s time to commit Coldworker’s debut to the site.

Let’s not mess around with long paragraphs here, as the band themselves are certainly not fucking about. Featuring the same drummer as Nasum, the opening track quickly sets the pace on a breakneck trip through a blend of death metal and grindcore. Comparisons to Nasum themselves is perhaps lazy, but if you enjoy their work, then Coldworker is a no brainer.
