Church Of The Cosmic Skull released a great album with ‘Is Satan Real?’, and while being full of top notch tracks nothing came close to opening number Mountain Heart, which to this day is still one of my all time favourite songs.
How will they ever top such a classic song? Well if they haven’t done it with Cold Sweat, they’ve certainly come close. The track is different for the band, and as in different I mean this is one of the happiest and brightest rock songs I’ve heard in a long time, and it’s not like the band were ever all doom and gloom, but this is something else. Does its work?…. absolutely. I listened to this song once and instantly remembered the melody and the words, and it sticks with you like nothing I’ve heard before. The layered vocals sung by no less that six singers, make this quite unique within the modern rock genre, and while it may not be big on the riffs or grooves, that gospel flavour and the total feel good vibe make this one of the catchiest and greatest songs of 2018. Great work once again from this rising band. 9/10
