    Cold in Berlin announce their new album The Comfort of Loss and Dust will be released on 4th May by Candlelight Records. 10 tracks of unprecedented scope and power, recorded at Gun Factory Studios, London and Mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Sunn O))) and Electric Wizard).
    A black mass of doomy punk rock awaits the listener, fired by the Gothic imaginings of vocalist/lyricist Maya. With its dark soundscapes spun in haunting imagery and a feeling of the uncanny, The Comfort of Loss and Dust plays like the aural accompaniment to a Hermann Hesse nightmare. The down-tuned guitars and powerful drums create a tide of sound; carrying Maya's vocals as she twists and writhes through the murky waters of love, loss and bone-shaking lust.

    “The album travels. We draw from diverse, supernatural landscapes. From the Yorkshire Moors to the barren beauty of Iceland, from India to the Catacombs beneath Paris. All share a similar mystery - and for me, are tied up with some form of loss. I think the listener will travel with us.”

    The record’s centrepiece is the seven-minute Mysterious Spells - a post-mortem of youthful abandonment and a terrifying journey into the miasma of our current malaise. Electricity crackles, Tibetan singing bowls ring and prayers are offered as the band completes its metamorphosis into a new kind of audible beast, Cold in Berlin at their darkest, heaviest and shin-shattering best.

    “With this album, definition is difficult but pain resonates throughout; the powerful sound of survival,” - Maya.

    Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album Give Me Walls (2010, Cargo) and the 2012 follow up And Yet, this release will be the bands’ second on pioneering independent label Candlelight Records.

    Since forming in 2010, London-based Cold in Berlin has played throughout Europe alongside some of the most revered alternative acts, graced major festival stages and won praise from influential publications including Q, Mojo, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound and Clash. Last year saw Cold in Berlin cement their position in the UK’s underground scene with a lauded appearance at Whitby Goth Weekend and a presence in the Terror and Wonder exhibition at the British Library.

lyrics

He writes her a letter to say he'll break her two
And she'll beg him to she'll beg him to
He writes out the list of the shit he's gonna make her do
Make her crawl for you make her crawl
Rape her daughter first
Rape her mother first
And she'll crawl through the filth to pray to you
Break her fingers first
Break her rib cage and she'll slide through the slime to get to you
He writes her a letter of all the things that he could do
She'll beg him to break her in two
He writes out a list the shit he's gonna make her do
Make her squirm for you make her squirm
Break her fingers first
Break her rib cage first
And she'll dance through the dust to pray to you
Rape her daughter first
Rape her mother first
And she'll squirm through the shit to get to you
In the murky water as he holds her down
Let the weight of the water soothe you as you drown
Break her fingers first
Break her rib cage first
And she'll dance through the shit to worship you
Break her mother first
Break her daughter first
And she'll squirm through the shit to get to you
