Merch of The Cold View is now available!

While I am still busy working on the third album you can now get t-shirts, longsleeves, girlies and hoodies at two webshops. With an eye on shiping costs think about if it would be cheaper for you to order in Europe or the USA.

Europe, Germany:

I have got some shirts for examination and they look good!

It seems the split of The Cold View with Abysmal Growls of Despair ( is still relevant months after it's release. We got an 7,5 out of 10 points review by The review is an excellent read, comprehensive and contemplative:

"To sum up, 'Songs of Deepest Skies' marks an impressive collaborative effort between two equally passionate yet distinctive Funeral/Drone bands whom have laid out, with much care, a non-coercive landscape of subjective contemplation for the willing listener to roam the depths of his/her own mind and heart; a boundless path as vast as the mighty sky itself."

If you still don't have the record, there are some copies of the beautyful A5 digipak left. You can order the digipak or the digital version at Bandcamp!

And it's even getting better: if you buy the full digital discography you will get an discount of 30%!

The split of The Cold View and Abysmal Growls of Despair got reviewed by Chronicles of Chaos:

"On the whole, this split presents a stark study of unalloyed negative emotion. Some personalities will be drawn into this unflinching sonic character; others -- who may require more motion or varied development in their listening choices -- will be repelled. The important thing is that music like this exists, that it is created by dedicated individuals and can be accessed by the greater public." 6,5/10 -

9 out of 10 points for the split with Abysmal Growls of Despair!

The Cold View and Abysmal Growls of Despair have received an excellent review and rating for Songs of Deepest Skies at

"With 'Songs of Deepest Skies' Hangsvart and A.A.S. do create a total work of art, in which almost everything fits. Artwork and music are connected to each other symbiotically, the songs have a clear line in the mood that they constitute and the two artists develop a dark, desperate atmosphere." [translated from: "Hangsvart und A.S.S. schaffen mit 'Songs Of Deepest Skies' ein Gesamtkunstwerk, bei dem fast alles passt. Artwork und Musik sind symbiotisch miteinander verbunden, die Songs haben eine klare Linie in der Stimmung, die sie erzeugen und die beiden Künstler erschaffen eine dunkle, verzweifelte Atmosphäre."] - 9/10 -

Another 8 out of 10 points for the new split Songs of Deepest Skies by Abysmal Growls of Despair and The Cold View! There are still some copies left of the limited release on my Bandcamp page.

"This is the way how it must sound when the huge darkness devourers the earth to never spew it out again."

[translated from "So muss das klingen wenn die die große Dunkelheit die Erde verschlingt um sie nie wieder auszuspeien."]
