We first saw Ghold in the back room of a filthy pub in Hackney. Their instruments kept breaking, the room was full of smoke, and we had so many ciders we were nearly sick on the nightbus afterwards. Waking up the next day, we had a terrible headache but we willingly bombarded it with the powerful, unrelenting marriage of doom, drone, and naked power that was every Ghold track we could glean off the internet. With their new album In Ruin just released, we pinned the duo down for a Future Hits interrogation.

Ghold on Thrash Hits
October 14th, 2014
We’ve always been pretty big fans of the mad noise that Årabrot have made their stock-in-trade, so when the news hit earlier this year that the band’s lynchpin Kjetil Nernes had been diagnosed with throat cancer, we were plenty concerned. Thankfully Nernes seems to have gotten the disease under control, as he’s leading his band to perform in a stacked bill at one of our favourite London micro venues later this week.
Interview: “Relic knows that it’s a fetish-object; it knows that it’s a ridiculously time-consuming beautiful thing” – Harriet Bevan from Black Moth on Relic zine
July 18th, 2013
Hey London, you’ve got it good. Especially tomorrow night. Not only could you go watch Yards’ sixth ever gig (supporting the equally awesome Palehorse), but there’s also a kick-ass launch party going on in North London for Relic, the brand new zine put together by Black Moth’s Harriet Bevan. We caught up with Harriet backstage at Download last month to get the inside scoop on Relic, and seeing as it’s launching tomorrow, well, now’s probably a good time to let that particular cat out of the bag, right?
