Scoring the coveted mainstage local spot on Taste of Chaos 2006, will just up the ante for this talented band. Their debut album "We The Living" was described by Rip It Up as a 'non-stop juggernaut of metal-core riffage, hardcore breakdowns and the vocals of a man not afraid to add intellect to an otherwise sometimes simplistic genre. You're going to want to see 'em. (Extract from Taste of Chaos 2006 press release)
Cold By Winter have in the three years they have been together continually proven their worth dedicatedly and regularly playing live with both their own shows and supporting international acts of the calibre of Thrice, Darkest Hour, Most Precious Blood, Hot Water Music, Terror, Mudvayne, Shai Halud, Day of Contempt, Nation Blue and The Jonestown Syndicate along the way. Not to forget the NZ heroes they have played alongside: The Bleeders, Blindspott, Sommerset, Kitsch and Cobra Kahn.
2006 saw Cold By Winter taking their music to the world with a 22 date european tour which saw them playing shows in Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. This was then followed up by dates in Australia.
Cold By Winter are a band to watch out for.
