Khold - Phantom CD


Obviously, Khold prefer to stay cold and play cold music. I cant see anything bad in that. They are playing slow, groovy riffs with dark, but clean production. They are playing thypical old school black metal with senseable ingredients from old heroes like Darkthrone and Mayhem. The guitar riffs are more than acceptable, in fact some of them are outstanding in the genre, but I will dare to claim that the drums are a bit too low and that makes it a bit monotonus. The bass sound is way better than I thought and gives the enitirety a good picture. For the first time I heard them, Khold unexpectly managed to create an atmosphere that strikes many of my earlier experiences with black metal.
