I've got high standards when it comes to depressive black metal. But KOLD met those with ease. This debut record is not overly lengthy, the production is upper-class without taking away the feeling of damp bleakness and isolation. Thrumming bass, precise drumming, big tremolo moments, desolate moments aplenty and ferocious vocals. What more could one ask for?
Favorite track: Fortvivlelsens Kammer.
