Colours Gone Cold is a record by My Misspent Youth that you might have missed. The original release date was 2012. It took the band four years to make this album for a number of reasons.
The band from Norway has a good sound and is hard to pinpoint. One thing I can say for sure is that there is a good amount of attitude especially from the female vocalist. The music can go from sounding more serious like a Tool song to something that just sounds badass.
They start off with the title track which is sleek and mysterious sounding. The band is incredibly tight and the production is exceptional. It s a dynamic song that displays the band's technical and creative talents. Suffice it to say the band is impressive.
The band continues to impress with “Integrity” which is just as dynamic and arguably a little more emotionally heavy. Some of that badass attitude I was talking about is backed up on the song “My Misery” contain lead guitar that tears a at the seams while “White Palm” is the first song that takes a bit of a breather and is quite atmospheric.
The songs are pretty diverse as the album progresses but never got into territory where it feels like it's a different band. The highlights to me were “Silvermule” and “My Angry Eye.” I can’t say there were any duds. The songs all felt well written.
The production is really good overall. I liked the bass and drum sound which gave a lot of energy to the recording. Overall, I enjoyed the album. Colours Gone Cold has raw energy even though the production was good. The songs were also well written and performed. Recommended.
