GHOLD REVEAL THEIR SECOND SINGLE FROM OF RUIN, PLUS TOUR TRAILER UNVEILED;
PRE-ORDERS NOW AVAILABLE VIA RITUAL PRODUCTIONS
RELEASE DATE: 16 MARCH
Ghold, volume-clad summoners of low end esotericism and chopped-and-screwed rhythmic ferocity today release the second single from their upcoming album, Of Ruin . “All Eyes Broke” (personal favourite) is the perfect example of Ghold’s progressive songwriting prowess. Haunted vocal incantations rise and fall to a whisper, lurching bass lines and cascading drums drop in and out at surprising intervals, all the while, mischievous and unpredictable sounds prevail before the whole song erupts to reach its climatic finale.

The two components of bass and drums are bound together so tight on Of Ruin that they resemble a singular gnarled entity, kneading together groove and melody like putty in the palm of their hands, with explosive results. Intrinsically heavy and elastically supercharged, Ghold create a strain of viscous rock that is as plainly devastating as it is capricious, pushing down the scales in a myriad of manners to achieve an ever heavier outcome. The riffs of the bass approach a murky mysticism, likely to crumble in landslides of overblown fuzz, before snapping in to strict rigidity comparable to what Motörhead would sound like if you isolated the rhythm section. The wealth of ideas presented by Paul Antony and Aleks Wilson on Of Ruin surpass the imaginations of the majority.
Of Ruin, mastered by James Plotkin, shall be available on CD and LP formats via Ritual Productions on 16th March. Pre order the CD via Ritual Productions.
For interview and review requests, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Don’t forget you can still enjoy the sounds of Ghold via their previous single “Partaken Incarnate”
“Ghold are not your bog standard NOLA worshipping sludge troupe. There may only be two of them, but on their debut full-length alone (‘Judas Ghoat’) these guys demonstrate more engaging ideas than many bands do over the course of their entire careers. The pair’s open minded approach to song writing deftly incorporates a whole host of eclectic influences, and somehow manages to sound incredibly fresh and exhilarating even when they’re ploughing into some of the most ponderous dirges you’ll hear this side of Corrupted. When they pick up the pace, their raucous, weirdly timed assaults sound a little bit like Lightning Bolt – well, how we imagine Lightning Bolt would sound if you locked them in a cellar for several months with nothing but a bucket of bovril and a copy of Melvin’s ‘Bullhead’ for sustenance, that is.” – TERRORIZER
