The song "Flesh World" is now available for streaming in the YouTube clip below.

Commented COLDWORKER drummer Anders Jackobson: "It was the first song written for 'The Doomsayer's Call'. It's a straightforward, furious mix of the elements that make up COLDWORKER, and serves as an example of what people can expect from the album."

Added vocalist Joel Fornbrant: "Civilization being the thin line between barbarism and the modern world, 'Violent Society' explores the plight of contemporary man and his ongoing war on himself."

The cover artwork for "The Doomsayer's Call" was created by the Swedish artist Pär Olofsson who has previously worked with such bands as MALEVOLENT CREATION, IMMOLATION, IMMORTAL, EXODUS and DYING FETUS.

Stated COLDWORKER: "The work Pär did for us followed our strict instructions and perhaps not his usual style, but we are all extremely happy with the result."

Jackobson previously stated about "The Doomsayer's Call": "There's often talk about 'the difficult second album.' Well, history has told me time and again that the third album is usually the most memorable in a band's discography.

"We have all put more than 100% each into this album, writing songs that will stand out on their own as well as have a natural place on the album, spending many hours in three different recording studios just to get the best out of ourselves and so on.

"The album is definitively 'the next step' for COLDWORKER, with developed songwriting and performances that are the best we can muster. It's really a band effort as all five members of the band have written songs, and likewise all five of us have opinions about what the final album should be."

"Rotting Paradise" was released in the U.S. on May 13, 2008 via Relapse Records.
