The Cold Stares is another promising traditional hard rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Any Way the Wind Blows, off from their latest single with the same title which was released in 2019. The Cold Stares is one of those bands who will satisfy many traditional hard rock music lovers with their professionalism and powerful sound.
Honestly, I don’t listen to traditional music very often. But when I listened to Any Way the Wind Blows for the first time, it gave me the feeling that there’s much more than that in this band. It was just a feeling at first and I realized that I wasn’t wrong when I checked out their pictures, Spotify and social media. As you can also remember from some of my previous articles, from time to time I mentioned the importance of handling all these aspects as a whole to be successful. Well, The Cold Stares in this way is an excellent example that every musician should examine. Take a look at how professional they look, their images, photoshoots, concepts and everything else along with their music, is creating a very professional image.
Any Way the Wind Blows is a very successful piece of work with top-class sound quality, great dynamics, and a proper hard rock spirit. This song was built to be played live on stage. The composition is super easy going, structured with traditional elements only. Again, when it comes to traditional and classic rock music, there’s no need to go into more details. We all know this is the actual foundation of our most favorite music, still lives on and forever will be thanks to bands like The Cold Stares.
