Matt Mitchell And The Cold Hearts – Self Titled Album Review11th February 2019
Matt Mitchell (Furyon, Pride, Colour Of Noise) is one hell of a vocalist and seems to have a way of always making spectacular debut albums.
Matt has gone from strength to strength. From the AOR/MOR of Pride, the heaviness of Furyon and then onto the AC/DC tinged Colour Of Noise, Matt Mitchell and the Cold Hearts is much more what the double M is all about.
The lead track from the album Black Diamonds isn’t a fair representation of the album.
I absolutely adore Matts voice and it’s come along in leaps and bounds. Especially since blowing his voice out a few years ago (which must’ve been tough for Matt to stay silent for so long and take a lot of time off gigging etc). But it’s really done him good. Much more tone, and dare I say, soulfulness.
The musicians on the album are good, Matt Cherry (drums) who locks in with Dom Ladd (bass(, Mauro Laconi (guitar) and Stevie Watts who lays down some amazing Hammond sounding keys.
Matt Mitchell and the Cold Hearts record is very much like an onion (many layers,) although it won’t make you cry.
This is a solid debut album and it’ll be interesting to hear it live
