A new video from death/thrash/grind outfit Cold Blooded just came online this morning. “No Hope = No Problem” is taken from the newly released album “Throneburner,” which dropped via Blackhouse Records. Though a dark and cathartic track about the ills of society, vocalist Ethan Kennedy has a different perspective on the “No Hope = No Problem” video itself.
Kennedy said: “it’s primarily a live video as we recorded our performance as well as off-stage antics. We filmed this during the Volume Music Festival in Spokane. It was an especially great night as the organizers (the Spokane Inlander newspaper) were cool enough to let Blackhouse records have a whole night to showcase their vast roster. Being able to share the stage with Slug Christ and Ras Kass as well as our regional counterparts in Zan, Scatterbox, Infrablaster and Narrow Minded made the shoot truly memorable.”
Cameos from many of the Blackhouse family (including label honcho Scott Rozell) also appear in the video. Inspired by the division in the country during the recent presidential election as well as violence in America, “Throneburner” is a particularly turbulent album. Further adding to the sonic fury is Bill Nieman in the Producers chair and Topon Das (of avant-grind freaks, Fuck The Facts) who contributes several sound-collage interludes and masters the record.
The band has several upcoming live shows scheduled, including:
8/18 Seattle, WA The Kraken Klaw
8/19 Everett, WA Tony V’s Garage Klaw, Method 13
8/31 Spokane, WA The Pin Decapitated, Thy Art Is Murder
