COLD WORLD is an extreme fast hardcore punk band from Vienna (Austria) active from 1988-1994. They had several international releases on labels like Sound Pollution, Lost & Found, B-Core and Sacro Egoismo. They have reunited in 2008 for a 20th Anniversary Gig and a new EP on the Australian label "Shortfuse Records" in 2013. This "So far so fast" is in reality the compilation of this album plus 2 ep´s and was released by "Sound Pollution Records" the label run by Ken from the band HELLNATION. The label was active from 1990 to 2008, but now is unfortunately defunct. The album without these 2 ep´s was released in 1992 with the help of "Sacro Egoismo Records", now defunc too. The musical style of COLD WORLD is pure, simple, short and direct hardcore like the early american bands in 1982, but here the band play the way ultra-fast like other few bands: Lärm, Intense Degree, SOB, Cryptic Slaughter, etc. The quality sound is very good and is important to mention the anecdote the band to added an adhesive where they affirmed not to sound like FUGAZI and similars... ha ha (you can see here below). Cold World come back in 2008 with new songs and touring across Europe and UK until nowadays.
