Anarch An incredible blend of Shoegaze and speed metal/Black metal/Doom metal. The main difference from other bands I have heard trying to blend this is two fold. 1) Other bands alternate whole songs between the two genres of music and 2) Where they are included in one song they don't blend them so well as Jord. With Jord it is as seamless as it can possibly be. Such terror in one moment and a bright shining beacon of hope in the next all within one song.. in every song. Such depth to the music and instruments to, listen close there's tons going on in the background. Work of art. Favorite track: Bruma.

lukewarmdog Just the right blend of melody and screaming for me. Pre-ordered their next album. Favorite track: Ligament.

Michelle The first time I heard this it gave me goosebumps. Penumbra makes my skin tingle all over.
This is the album that got me listening to different metal and then shoegaze and post-rock... Really sent me down a rabbit hole of awesome. Favorite track: Penumbra.

Reviews:

"With a near-perfect blackened shoegaze sound exploding from their debut record, MØL don’t reinvent the wheel their peers in Deafheaven, Lantlôs, Heaven In Her Arms, Oathbreaker, and Alcest push – not at all. What MØL do, however, is drench said wheel in liquid fucking gold and create what is by far one of this genre’s strongest, most-accomplished records in the process. ‘Jord’ is utterly brilliant, to say the absolute very least."
- killyourstereo.com

"Denmark sure has its finger on the pulse of metal at the moment, and their latest export MØL can be added to the list of hottest bands to watch. MØL are blistering yet charming in equal measures. Their brand of ‘black shoegaze’ is nothing short of mesmerising."
- metalmance.wordpress.com

"Throughout Jord, MØL expertly conjure both blistering passages ripe with black metal’s incandescent rage, and esoteric atmospheres at home in the left field of metal’s sphere and gentler pastures. A statement both devastating and delicate, this feels like the beginning of something truly special from band equally capable of wrenching the heart and the neck."
- atomsmashermusic.online

"Whilst it may take some acts years to achieve a sound so detailed, characteristic and atmospheric, MØL have achieved such feats without issue or tribulation. Expect to see Jord on many album of the year lists come the end of 2018."
- www.noizze.co.uk

"I think it is perfectly reasonable in years to come, to see the name MØL sat comfortably alongside the likes of Alcest and Deafheaven as the very best that the genre has to offer."
- manofmuchmetal.com

"This is one of those rare records that will leave you stunned after the very first listen, yet its full, intoxicating glory only reveals itself once you’ve allowed yourself to become fully immersed in its hauntingly stark yet irrepressibly delectable world."
- distortedsoundmag.com

"Honestly, this one only gets better with each subsequent listen."

vision
grow within me
wither the word
we once spoke

devoid
from a restless world
into obscurity

open arms
with hands
that never yield
give into the storm

bleach
these days
black to grey
not guiding me
extinguish the light

aimless
stride
moonless
nights
senseless
skin

we felt the fall
we felt the winter within

brightness
outblown
eventide
return
smother
your prayers
despairing light
we felt the wither within

blackening
the eyes that follow
wandering
a hand that keeps us
trembling
the passing light is
beckoning
decide

the passing light is
beckoning

bleach
these days
black to grey
not guiding me
extinguish the light

these throes, our plight
bound by mortal sight
still we think ourselves chainless
these dreams are fast
our glow will fade and die
still we think ourselves timeless

wither
blind
before the timeless
deceived
totemic idols

we're shadows
of self
before the timeless
eternal
great unknown

evig nat
vi er borte
evig nat
vi er væk

greet the age of all end
return to substance,
ascend
what is simple will remain
unshackled, unfeigned

what is simple will remain
unshackled, unfeigned

these throes, our plight
bound by mortal sight
still we think ourselves chainless
these dreams are fast
our glow will fade and die
still we think ourselves timeless

burning free
and bright
our eyes will see
and die

vi venter på det som forgår
det er høst
for vi er markens sønner

vi længes mod det som består
ved hver kyst
for vi er havets sønner

dvæl
min søn
forløst
styrk dig i lyset

dømt
til liv
fortvivl
dvæl i mørket

død
født
min søn
styrk dig i lyset

et liv
du længes
i dag
i dag

et liv
du lever
i dag
i dag

synk med nattens sorg
løftet af dagens sang til dig
synk med havets sorg
dybets klang, genlød i dig


vi venter på det som forgår
ved hver kyst
for vi er sandets sønner

dømt
til liv
fortvivl
dvæl i mørket

dvæl
min søn
forløst
styrk dig i lyset

vend dit blik
fra verden
dybets favntag
havet velkommer dig

vend dit blik
mod smerten
dybets favntag
havet velkommer dig
velkommer dig

synker med verdens sorg
livets klang, genlød i dig

dit liv
du længes
i dag
i dag

dit liv
du lever

terror
terror
delight
searing into flight
searing into flight

you are screaming
your purpose
to everyone
what to believe in
know who you are
what you care about

terror
terror
delight
searing into flight
searing into flight

I am the flower
I am the passage
the glimpse of day
momentary
temporary
swept away

in our time
we’re terrified
the woe is blind
take me deeper
the weakening
this is our last time

out of reach
how can you grasp
what you won't understand
fear of the future
keep you captive
this is our last time

time
searing into flight
searing into flight

you are screaming
your purpose
to everyone

our eyes caught
the dawnless
skies
the dawnless
skies

ghost

weightless
suspended for days

roaring light

Track Name: JORD
jordens barn
jeg glemmer mit ophav
i min afmagts sold

jordens barn
mit skrig ej forstummes
sluk min tørst med vold

tørst
min sygdom
din hævn
er trældom

tidens ånd
jeg flygter fra trængslen
fra stormens vold

sultens bånd
jeg fyldes af længsel
mod gravens sold
mod dvalens sold

væk mig
en dag
væk mig
igen

når en længsel bliver et hjem
en indre bolig brændt
evig tørst
i et hav af forløsning

mit fængsel er mit hjem
forkullet og forbrændt
livet
solgt til tabte visioner

når en længsel bliver et hjem
en indre bolig brændt
tørstig
i et hav af forløsning

mit fængsel er mit hjem
forkullet og forbrændt
mit hjem
