Khold, Norway’s premier exponent of groove-laden, grim black metal, has released a new video offering a track by track breakdown, courtesy of drummer Sarke, outlining the motivations behind the music and what to expect from each song on its new album, Til Endes, out now on Peaceville Records.

Undoubtedly the band’s strongest work to date, Til Endes explores the dark foreboding corners of the metal spectrum with eerie riffs, grim vocals courtesy of mysterious frontman Gard, and catchy hooks which are so often ignored in the genre.
Expanding upon Khold’s staple sound of mid-tempo primitive and heavy black metal, the band’s sixth studio release adds an additional aggressive edge to the tracks overall, whilst retaining its use of solely Norwegian lyrics. The album also notably includes a cover of the Sepultura classic, “Troops of Doom,” given the full Khold treatment, and titled “Dommens Arme.”
Til Endes was recorded at Studio Fredman (Amon Amarth, At the Gates, Opeth) in Sweden in June 2014 with the line-up of Gard (vocals/guitar), Sarke (drums), Rinn on guitar and Crowbel on bass.
Til Endes can be purchased via iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/til-endes/id920624157, Amazon.com at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NQ3HB7I/ref=dm_ws_ap_tlw_alb5 and through the Peaceville web-store at: https://www.burningshed.com/store/peaceville/.
Khold formed in Oslo in 2000 by Gard and Sarke (currently seen in his own, self-named act alongside Darkthrone’s Nocturno Culto), as Khold emerged out of the ashes of the cult band Tulus. The band has recorded five albums to date since its debut Masterpiss of Pain was released on Moonfog Productions, and has successfully toured with bands such as Satyricon and Behemoth in the past.
