Norwegian black metal band Khold formed in Oslo in the year 2000, by Gard & Sarke, as Khold emerged out of the ashes of the cult band Tulus. Khold is notable for their use of old Norse for song-titles & lyrics. Phantom was Khold's second album, released in 2002 on Moonfog Productions, just one year on from their debut Masterpiss of Pain. The tracks on offer were once again a fine concoction of mid-paced, often groove-laden black metal, with old-school riffing, & a prominent bass presence helping to drive the tracks along. Khold quickly became firmly established in the black metal world as a serious force in this newer wave of Norwegian acts. This edition of Phantom includes a bonus demo version of the song Rovnatt recorded by the band in 2000, which had originally led to the band inking a deal with Moonfog.
