Khold: Til Endes

Oslo, Norway’s Khold have proven themselves to be one of the strongest, as well as sturdiest entities in the Black Metal underground to date. With the exception of their bass player, which has changed hands a few times before current member Crowbel took the reigns, the group has largely remained Sarke on drums, Rinn on guitar, and Gard handling vocals and guitars. According to Metal-Archives there’s also a fifth member, Hildr, who happens to be the main lyric writer for the band, as well as Gard’s wife. Despite those few line-up alterations to one instrument, the past fourteen years have seen very few major difficulties for the group, as well as a steady number of full-lengths following an originally unreleased demo sent only to labels. Since their 2001 debut (Masterpiss of Pain) to their most recent (2008’s Hundre år gammal), Khold have turned out one album after another to positive reaction by fans and critics alike. However, this is still one of the grossly overlooked acts within the field. But, after a good six years of silence, Khold return with their sixth full-length effort, Til Endes. Will this be the recording to really put the band over the top in the style, or will this be one glossed over for more reasons other than mild obscurity?
