Hailing from the nation's shipbuilding capitol Newport News VA. Coldcast fuses a "working class" ethic with modern American metal. Drawing on influences like Faith no more, Mr. Bungle, Candiria, Death (Chuck Shouldiner) Ozzy (of course Randy Rhodes!), Coldcast brings a unique mix to heavy music. Attention being focused on individual musicianship, and songwriting. Each member brings the very best his instrument can offer the song.
True veterans of the stage, Coldcast have been performing as a band since 2000. Proving show after show that "We LOVE doing this". Coldcast have played at national venues such as the NorVa theater in Norfolk VA, the Wrecher theater and Club Mate in Baltimore MD.
