Hailing from Oslo and formed in 2000, Khold are a worthy and fitting addition to the Moonfog roster, as they have some similarities to bands such as (newer) Satyricon and Thorns. The guitarwork, vocals, and general atmosphere is clearly derived from old-school black metal bands such as Darkthrone, with the main differences being that Khold rarely move up to blastbeat speed (preferring a slow to mid-paced grind), and also the fact the Khold eschews the bad-production-on-purpose ideal of many black metal bands in favor of a crystal clear production that works well to their advantage. They aren't perfect, as some songs tend to drag and more energy in the musicianship wouldn't go amiss (the drumming in particular is functional but unadventurous), but within the rigid genre of of traditional black metal they've managed to both retain the sound of their influences while forging a style of their own.
