Til Endes
Vinyl

After a period of 6 years in the wilderness, Norway's exponents of groove-laden black metal are back with a new album, 'Til Endes'. 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 their 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'.
