Incubate Preview: Khold

By on 17 September 2013

Norway’s Khold play mid-paced black metal with a hearty dose of rock’n’roll inspired groove, not unlike the later works of Satyricon or Craft. Formed after the break up of Tulus (who, incidentally, reformed back in 2006 and are also taking to the stage at this year’s Incubate festival), Khold have since gone on to release five albums worth of their trademark black’n’roll. Combining the cold hostility of black metal with the groovier climes of rock is often a recipe for disaster, but Khold have managed to harness the power of both genres to spectacular effect.

With their evil, hard rocking grimness, Khold’s set may be the only one at Incubate that you can swing your hips to whilst simultaneously extending a crab claw into the sky, so don’t miss out!
