Madysin Hatter’s SONG OF THE WEEK
Song: NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDING, Artist: KOLD BLOODED
Expect great things from KOLD BLOODED— a local band of high schoolers led by vocalist and rhythm guitarist MIKE FLORENTINE. Having just released their second single “NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDING”, the band is already slated to record with Disturbed’s John Moyer this summer. You don’t have to be in high school to connect with the raw, passionate rage that drives “NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDING”. In fact, by honestly writing about what they know, KOLD BLOODED displays a level of confidence and maturity that even some of the more seasoned artists fall short of achieving. I especially dig the hard hitting chorus that’s just begging for a mosh. Experience the menacing energy of KOLD BLOODED live at Championship Bar in Trenton on March 31st, and at GameChangerWorld in Howell on April 15th!
Q: What was your inspiration for writing “NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDING”?
MIKE FLORENTINE, VOCALIST AND RHYTHM GUITARIST OF KOLD BLOODED: When I switched schools a few years back, I went from a very easy, laid-back school to a school that was the complete opposite of that. And for me, that was my worst NIGHTMARE— hence inspiring me to write this song.
Q: What’s your favorite lyric from “NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDING”?
MIKE FLORENTINE: That’s a tough one haha. I like all of them, but if I had to pick my favorite I would probably have to go with “Ripping Off My Face” from the chorus.
Q: Describe KOLD BLOODED in a five word phrase.
MIKE FLORENTINE: Success is the greatest revenge.
Q: Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
MIKE FLORENTINE: Korn, Slipknot, Eminem, Hatebreed, Linkin Park, and plenty of others.
Q: Where are you from?
MIKE FLORENTINE: Matawan, New Jersey.
Q: What’s one of your favorite local hang outs?
MIKE FLORENTINE: Probably my house haha, we have lots of fun there.
Q: When is your next local gig?
MIKE FLORENTINE: Friday March 31st at Championship Bar in Trenton. Then Saturday April 15th at GameChangerWorld in Howell.
Q: What’s your favorite song to play live and why?
MIKE FLORENTINE: Even though it’s a cover, “Bodies” by Drowning Pool. No matter where we play it people always lose their minds.
Q: What’s next for you and your band?
MIKE FLORENTINE: This summer, we’re going to Texas to record our debut EP with John Moyer, bass player from the multi-platinum selling, Grammy nominated band Disturbed. And playing some shows around the country!
Q: Big picture, what is KOLD BLOODED’s goal?
MIKE FLORENTINE: To get signed, put out our record, and tour the world for a living.
Q: Heat wave or blizzard?
MIKE FLORENTINE: That’s a tricky one. Probably a heat wave cuz, being from New Jersey, I’m not a fan of the cold.
