"Quick Play: A round-up of June 2011 album releases"

Koltdown are a Mexican alternative metal band with hardcore, thrash and progressive touches.

Opener 'In Spite Of It All' opens with vocals and piano and builds with guitars quite heavily, with some effects too. 'The Fall' is quite a heavy chunky number, nicely rough, punchy drums, thrash riffs and heavy screamed vocals (straight out of the 90s). 'Volcan' is more uptempo and features a blistering guitar solo rising from the racket.

If a 20 stone rugby player could tap dance on your eardrums in a progressive manner, the 6 minute 'Revolver' would come close.

'Seis Desparos' (running at over 8 minutes) has some progressive stoner moments and hardcore guitars too. When it nods to acoustic style (noisily I must add), the guitar interplay is quite intricate. The screams and deep vocals are the progressive icing on the hardcore alternative cake. - Joe Geesin - Get Ready To Rock

Bio

Koltdown (also known as KTDN) is a metal/rock band with some years of been started in La Paz, South Baja, Mexico. The members decided to move to Mexico City, looking for better chances of growing as band. The project was kept alive only by both guitarists, Mike Porta and Héctor Trasviña, who eventually found and reclute new members in Mexico City.

Koltdown has played live in South Baja, including Los Cabos. They´ve also played in many different places of Mexico City like Circo Volador, where some bands like Arch Enemy and Lamb of God have also been there.

Their first album is called Truth Becomes, released in early 2011. It has 12 songs that reflects musical influences of each member of the band. Each song gives different colors and emotions wich combined, they fully described Koltdown’s
proposal. Influence of heavy metal, trash, progressive, even grunge and hard rock can be heard whitin the entire album.
Recently, Rolling Stone Magazine in Mexico made a review of Truth Becomes in march 2011 edition, remarking the rudeness of vocals and guitar riffs, and the solid bass and drums arrangements. The album is already on sale at digital stores and the first single video, Wake Up Dead, is also available on the Web.
