Cold Sweat is the name of four different bands, they are: 1. A hardcore/punk band with releases on the now defunct Manic Ride Records. Members went on to Iron Lung, Repercussions, Gehenna, Walls, Men's Interest and Society Nurse. 2. An American hard'n'heavy band, who recorded an album "Break Out" in 1990, which is a classic among rare hard rock albums collectors. When guitarist Marc Ferrari left the mildly successful Keel in 1988, he sought to recruit a new band that would play a similar brand of slick hard rock.
