Cold is one of those bands who I grew up listening to, and although my musical tastes have changed, this album remains one of my favorites of all time. As emotional as a hard rock is going to get, Scooter Ward's lyrics are a standout.
Frontman Scooter Ward and Cold skillfully bleed emotional, powerful, and at times moving music thirteen consecutive times to create an album that can only be described as an overlooked hard rock masterpiece....
... well that's what I said when I joined Sputnik anyway. I listened to a bunch of horrible artists and albums and rated them classics when I joined here, and with time I realized how non-classic they were. Well, 13 Ways to Bleed On Stage was one of those albums, but it never really grew off. To this day, this album has remained a classic for me, and it is with deepest sorrow that I degrade it. That said, you will still not find many better hard/mainstream rock records than this. Here's to the old Cold.
Absolutely my favourite album of all time. One of those albums that you can listen from start to finish and go back and do it all over again to experience the emotion and pain. My favourite track would have to be Sick Of Man, but i could have picked any of the other 12 as my favourite as well - its that good. Any musician or music lover should own this album, it is true musical beauty.
