Khold - Masterpiss Of Pain CD
Hailing from Norway and described by some as the manifestation of raw Black Metal's spirit transposed into the new century, Khold show the healthy attitude of refusing to fit any definition whatsoever. Yes, these guys are obviously into simplistic Black Metal. Yes, they show a modern sound and approach to their music.
Khold's sound is raw and stripped down, but by no means technically poor and old-fashioned, at all. Actually, "Masterpiss Of Pain" is as modern as it can get without sounding artistically misplaced. First, unlike many Black Metal bands, Khold use heavily downtuned strings.
