Jacek Wolański about Cold Therapy and much more!
Tomasz Herbrich: With Traumatize you also come very high. Foreign label, physical releases… Lot of polish artists are dreaming about that. Was it hard?
Jacek Wolański: To be honest, it wasn’t so hard as it can look like, but it was arduous, took a lot of patience and time, care about finding good contacts, and making your way to the right people. It came by itself. I’ve started to know with influental people and artists… After that, it was much easier.
Tomasz Herbrich: But even in Traumatize something went wrong. But we don’t shed a tears, because your newborn child called Cold Therapy is comming! We can hear first snippets of it on the internet. Tell us more about your new project.

Jacek Wolański: I dont regret anything I’ve done with Traumatize. It ends, that’s all. End of story. Don’t sched tears (it sounds really dramatic).
Now i focus on Cold Therapy where I’m going to reach higher level. For now, you can hear short (30 sec) snippet of “Lost Yout Way”, but in near future it will be able in full length, included on Halotan Records Sampler CD. Also you will find me on three other samplers… For now I’ve done tree remixes and one featuring track, so I slowly start the promotion for Cold Therapy.
About the sound… You can expect something like you already know from Traumatize, but I must say that I’m not so much interrested in agressive sounds right now. First Cold Therapy album will be more like classical Dark Electro style, with more „oldschool” sounds, because all that I love in this music genre comes from ’90s. I wonder if the new Cold Therapy album will be well accepted.
Tomasz Herbrich: So what is the biggest problem to realize your “american dream”?
Jacek Wolański:Live shows, I think. To this days, I’ve never played live, because I didn’t had opportunity and proper gear for it. But it’s a present state… I’ll never play alone, pressing play on my laptop and screaming to microphone. When you start to do something, do it good. I Hope it will change in near future, and I’ll be able to play live.
Tomasz Herbrich: So what’s the reason? You can’t find any good musician? You don’t have gear? I understand your reluctance for “solo live – laptop performances”, because I heard that it looks really bad. But doesn’t good music defense itself?
Jacek Wolański: As you said, I think it’s frivolous. In my opinion, that kind of project should never play live. Standing alone with laptop? Sorry but it’s not the show… I’ve talked about all obstacles earlier. For now, this is the way how my live show would look, so I’m not doing it.
I must say that I had a lot of offers, even to play with well-known bands. From my friends BetaMorphose (ex Nurzery Rhymes) for example. They really want to play with me, but as you said, I don’t have crew for live acts. They should be trusted people, not someone from nowhere, cause I don’t want to be afraid for my back all the time, when I’m singing. I don’t have gear to play live, for now. It should change in future I don’t know where or when, but someday I will play live. that’s for sure, I can promise that!
Tomasz Herbrich: Now the classics. What does Cold Therapy mean to you?
Jacek Wolański: Name of my new project is a collison of all my past ideas, something between them, because they wasn’t really good for a project name and “cathy”. My friend helped me with it, and I liked it.
About the meaning, I think it is in some way about certain period of my life.
Tomasz Herbrich: Tell us then, when you want to release your debut album? And where, in near future, we can find Cold Therapy featuring tracks? Or is it a secret?
Jacek Wolański: For now, I cant’t say anything sure about release date of debut album, but I hope I’ll be able to finish work on it between February and March 2013… But it’s only a hope. When I’ll be finishing it, then, for sure, I’ll tell more.
And no, it’s not a secret where you can find Cold Therapy. I’ve recorded vocals to “El Comandante”, for Argentine band FF.AA. They are playing martial industrial / dark electro, something between Feindflug and Acylum. Track will be included on their upcoming album, released by Mutant-E Records. I hope, there will be some kind of preview of it soon, so you can hear it.
