“Coldbones confidently stand up to the promise of being one of postrock’s shining lights.”
Metal Hammer

“Atmospheric and a fresh take on postrock”
Prog Magazine

“This energy, urgency and unwillingness to bend to genre tropes could easily see Coldbones
rise through the ranks to become one of the leading names in instrumental music.”


“Simply beautiful”
Alex Baker, Kerrang! Radio


Following the release of their epic video single ‘Collapse’ (to which Heavy Blog Is Heavy stated “the term “guns blazing” was virtually made for this”), UK trio Coldbones have released the full track list and iconography for their forthcoming studio album ‘The Cataclysm’, which will release on April 17th via Dunk! Records.

Serving to further deepen the mystery and symbolism surrounding Coldbones’ forthcoming release, unique iconography for each individual track has been expertly crafted by tattoo artist Dan Frye. The artwork for recent single ‘Collapse’, for instance, bears resemblance not only to seismic readings that might indicate an earthquake, but also to a heartbeat entering it’s final moments of animation – a further nod to the catastrophic events entwined in ‘The Cataclysm’.

As the band state; “The titles and icons of each track represent each chapter within our concept, and we’re excited to share further details on this in the coming weeks.”

Coldbones – ‘Collapse’

Wielding a stunning, combined arsenal of post-rock, prog, shoegaze and traditional metal, Coldbones’ forthcoming studio offering follows their 2018 debut “Where It All Began”, which saw high praise upon release, with Metal Hammer calling the trio “one of postrock’s shining lights”.

‘The Cataclysm’ seeks to present an intensely dynamic journey of musicianship, wrapped around a conceptual masterpiece that promises – quite literally – to destroy the world as we know it.


Described by the Kent-based trio as “a fatalist portrait”, each of the album’s ten tracks will serve as interconnecting pieces of a larger picture that offers the listener nothing less than a front-row seat to the ultimate catastrophic event – the end of the world.

“The Cataclysm presents a fictional take on two catastrophic events. The album draws inspiration from past catastrophes as well as works of fiction from various sources”, explains the band on their forthcoming epic. 

“‘The Flooding of the World’ and the tracks that follow draw attention to the raw, natural power of wind and rain, along with the rising sea levels of a great flood, barraging against the highest of land and plunging all into darkness.”

The band go on to talk about the second half of the album.

“As the debris and remains of life ascend towards the light of the sun, ‘The Burning of the Earth’ begins. Thus, a silent, haunting landscape unfolds, worlds apart from the species and vegetation that once populated the earth, now left in ruin and soon to be extinct. For the seldom few that have survived, distress signals are transmitted in a desperate attempt for salvation.”

Complimenting Coldbones’ expansive and world-ending brand of prog-infused instrumental post-rock, artist Alice Urbino captures the devastation of ‘The Cataclysm’ perfectly with the album’s cover art. As fire and brimstone pour relentlessly from a charred and blackened sky, a seductive landscape of barren mountains and hills mirrors the haunted nothingness that Coldbones envisions will replace our bustling, noisy existence at the end of days. Capturing a living, breathing snapshot of the end of everything we know and love from every angle possible, Coldbones’ ‘The Cataclysm’ promises to be an irresistibly bleak, wholly fascinating and entirely engulfing experience from start to finish.

Coldbones second studio album ‘The Cataclysm’ will release on 17th April 2020 via Dunk! Records. You can stream and download ‘Collapse’ now via Spotify and Amazon Music.
