Cold Dead Hands


Cold Dead Hands started with Ian Strung, the band's singer, primary songwriter, and sole guitarist. Since the mid-1990's, Ian had been writing alternative rock songs and honing his instrumental skills, looking for the right band to perform and record with. In 2004, Ian met Cold Dead Hands members Robin Deyong and original drummer Elena Silina at the Trebas Institute in Toronto. The two players knew they wanted to be in a band, and enjoyed Ian's original demoes enough to give him a chance. Read more on Last.fm
Cold Dead Hands started with Ian Strung, the band's singer, primary songwriter, and sole guitarist. Since the mid-1990's, Ian had been writing alternative rock songs and honing his instrumental skills, looking for the right band to perform and record with. In 2004, Ian met Cold Dead Hands members Robin Deyong and original drummer Elena Silina at the Trebas Institute in Toronto. The two players knew they wanted to be in a band, and enjoyed Ian's original demoes enough to give him a chance.

Ian's surprisingly hummable songs and unique playing-style - inspired by single-guitar bands like Blur, Cream, and Nirvana - fit perfectly with Robin's huge, Who-style bass playing. Half-way through 2006, Elena parted ways with the band, and Rob Kisler from FINE MOTOR CONTROL took over behind the kit. Without skipping a beat, Cold Dead Hands had suddenly acquired a huge, ultra-impactful sound. The sound of Cold Dead Hands is thoroughly contemporary, loud and intense enough for the garage rock set while remaining nuanced and textured. Cold Dead Hands could best be summed up as a super-heavy throwback to the golden era of 1990's grunge and britpop, along with all their fetishes (70's arena rock, the Beatles, punk and new wave). Cold Dead Hands has attained a reputation for intense live performances.

Their shows are exhibitions of incredibly tight playing and an over-the-top improvisational edge. The band does what they want on stage; they have the chops to pull it off, and the songs to make it addictive. And they do it all with a stark minimalism - live and on record, individual notes are audible, and withstand close scrutiny. Cold Dead Hands are a well known as a musician's band and have shared bills with bands like The Two Koreas, Cities In Dust, The Postage Stamps and Bionic.
