Progressive metal outfit from Denmark, COLD NIGHT FOR ALLIGATORS, have dropped their brand new single 'Nostalgic', today.
A straight-up banger with a lot of brilliant nuances. Solid riffs, electronics and rhythmic oddities in a blender with a total complex and catchy outcome. The song feels like a nice continuation of both proggy and more metal influences.
The video was shot and edited by their friend Jacob Harris, who integrated live-action, the lyrics and a cool, throwback video-game aesthetic.
Johan Pedersen (vocals) on the song:
“We’re a weird band and have gotten quite a bit of hate over the time, both in person and online. Now we finally wrote a proper “metal” song, so it seemed appropriate to write about this. I guess this is a kind of loving middle finger to a metal scene that we come from, but don’t really fit into.”
Watch/listen 'Nostalgic' now.
"It's a trial
A battle filled with endless pride
Did you try?
Old wounds they will permeate"
