The pairing of Black Metal and Shoegaze was always going to have its naysayers; fortunately, the triumphant and crushing sonic result has been the catalyst for some incredible bands – just like Danish-powerhouse Møl.
Møl are set to release their unyieldingly stunning and cathartic debut album Jord via Holy Roar Records on 13th April. Taking the shimmering tropes of Slowdive and seamlessly blending them with a sharp strain of Black Metal to create an exceptional collision of beauty and wretchedness – this instantly deems them as one of the best in their genre.
Listen to track ‘Penumbra’ here:
The band comments: “It is Møl’s first tour in England! We´re super excited to see how the UK will greet us five Danes and our gentle and punishing tunes! It’s a scary thing – but with such great company as Svalbard, Helpless & Monolithian – plus ending the whole ordeal with a kickass show at Creeping Death Fest in the city of Brighton, I know we’re in for a quick but nonetheless memorable ride.”
24th May – Black Heart, London with Svalbard
25th May – Soan, Nottingham with Svalbard
26th May – Mother’s Ruin, Bristol with Helpless / Monolithian
