Eric Gottesman, who worked with Colin Slash, Psyclon Nine, Deathline Int'l or Ayria, came out with a new band Everything Goes Cold. Considering a fresh motion on the industrial rock scene during the last few years it should be said that some of the artists get back to the music style roots, enriching their tunes with new technologies. At least we live in the age of the technology, what has reflected the state of these days industrial music but some of the styles need a refreshment saving the idea of their originals. Eric decided to defrost some things from the past thus there are 5 original songs and remix versions on Prepare To Be Refrigerated CD. The only one untouched track is a very industrial, almost noise interlude? called Defrosting. All the remix versions come out next.

I'm happy to hear Hate Dept. on this CD while they announced their own album 2 or 3 years ago and seems like Seibold can’t focus on letting it come into fruition. Fail (Bruise & Disco Mix) came out really good with this revolutionary punk vibe so typical for the band. I hope this incoming album turns out great after such a long time of waiting!
Another musician who marked its presence on the 90s coldwave scene (however seems like the band due to lack of promotion didn’t get enough of an exposure then) is Boom from Society Burning. He made a remix with I guess the longest ever and very funny title: I've Sold Your Organs on the Black Market to Finance the Purchase of a Used Minivan (Except for the Stupid Skeletor Tattoo on Your Right Bicep). Right on! This version of the song contains dynamic beats, vocals with an effect of 8bit music and a variety of cool samples coming out along with heavy guitar riffs.

I could recognize such names like Babyland, Caustic and Dismantled, but it's nice to know the others. You may like a dynamic remix by Panic Lift, and not less rhythmic but a bit noisy Fail (Refrigerated Mix) by SAM, which can cause you stamping. Babyland played less aggressive but more electro what may enjoy the fans of club parties. Other than that Embodi merged a few styles of music, but the core of the song reminds me a similarity to KMFDM vibe. The con is about too synthetic drums but pro considers guitars involved.
Next there's Life Cried with Fail (Life Failed Mix) in a Cloud of coldwave synths, heavy guitars and sampled beat. Caustic kept the song in almost power-noise rhythm, though nothing but the dynamics is not enough to me. An interesting trance version of the remix with an adequate title (Trance-planted) made Epsilon Minus. My attention was stolen by the rhythm but sampled guitars added some kind of an aggression to the remix. It's a great song for a dance floor. The album ends up with Fail (Never Survive Mix) by Dismantled, less dirty then earlier however I could hear the echoes of Prodigy.

The album contains very visual traces of coldwave and industrial music of the 90s, old-school industrial sound of Numb, Out Out, Diatribe, Chemlab, MLWTTKK, Society Burning or 16volt.
There are both samples and guitars kept in an equal balance what's an advantage for EGC. A very good album production and a free promotional remix made by Out Out 'Fail (Swift & Concise Failure Mix)' also brings a high note for this release. Most of the artists featured on the album have an experience in music production so none of the songs sounds low quality.

The CD brings a merit to these days' industrial rock scene which has been living its second youth for the last few years. There are new releases and remix albums on the market – old pros vs. newbies. ECG turned to the old, efficient remixing method, where the remix had to be connected to the original version while new remix releases put out by a few other bands lack that feature probably due to less knowledge about the old methods. Abort (Tinnitus is a Son of a Bitch Mix) by off_ocus is the only one track which is not reflected by any remix on the CD.

Is the CD title suggestive? We'll see but all-to-all EGC after a hype for coldwave sounds in the 90s recommends refrigeration time now ;)
