Terzij De Horde

TERZIJ DE HORDE combine an amalgam of progressive black and doom metal with a rawness and live presence reminiscent of extreme hardcore or chaotic screamo.

Terzij de Horde is old Dutch for “set apart from the horde”. It is a line from the poem “Einde” (ending) by legendary Dutch poet Hendrik Marsman. Marsman is an inspiration to the band, as are many other authors and philosophers in the same dark, vitalistic vein.

Starting out as Liar Liar Cross On Fire in 2007, the band grew away from its sonic roots in grindcore and crusty hardcore, and toward more dark atmospherics. Throughout their existence, the band has been described as a mix between Khanate, Wolves in the Throne Room, Deathspell Omega and Neil Perry.

In April 2010, Terzij de Horde played their first show under that name with Altar of Plagues, Year of No Light and Starve to release their EP “A Rage of Rapture Against the Dying of the Light”. Since then, the band has received widespread international attention and many very positive reviews both of their recorded music and of their explosive live performances. In June 2011, the EP was rereleased on vinyl by Antithetic Records (Kayo Dot, maudlin of the Well, Young & In The Way).

Throughout the years following this release, Terzij de Horde played all over the Netherlands, toured the UK, Ireland and Germany, shared the stage with the likes of Liturgy, Anaal Nathrakh, Bone Awl, Envy and God Dethroned and played festivals like Siege Of Limerick, Incubate, Doom Over Leipzig, Black Metal Desecration and State-X New Forms.

    By the way, before we argue any more and clog up a perfectly good shoutbox (let's just chalk this up to "opinions are like assholes, yada yada yada"), the band and myself have been passing around some ideas about the upcoming full-length album. Nothing's official or set in stone yet, we still need to figure things out and agree on terms and all that, but it is looking pretty good so I just wanted to throw the news out there to clear the air waves.

    "people should be a bit more careful with genreshouting" <----- That's why we have genres in the first place. ;-)

    The cliché of calling a genre dead is utterly boring and obviously not valid. Now, I can imagine the struggle to combine all these bands who've solderiered forth under one fine flag of evolution. Because, who decides which band is 'post' enough and which one is not? Is ColdWorld a post-black metal band because of his very orthodox music or is it because the production is so smooth that even the new wave of listeners is able to embrace it? And can we call Les Discrets post-black metal because of their relationship with Amesoeurs, or is it because of that one blastbeat on their entire debut? Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not here to freak out on bands I don't like. I'm a huge fan of TDH and I love what they do with their sound, but people should be a bit more careful with genreshouting. Non the less, do as you please.

    @ ontzwart, Let's face it: black metal is dead. It doesn't matter what your feelings are for Alcest or any specific group you don't want lumped in with Terzij De Horde, the fact remains is that these bands have roots in black metal yet didn't get caught up in the fallout because they pulled up stakes and soldiered forth to shape and mold a new sound and identity which in strict definition to black metal makes them something else entirely (and not simply "unorthodox black metal" either). People have struggled to define these bands for years so I proposed "Post Black Metal" as a general term for a variety of artists regardless if they're good or bad, sound like hardcore or sound like pop. "Post" simply means "after" but also indicates a movement away from something, so I see absolutely nothing wrong at all with this labeling. And Terzij De Horde is a great band by the way. Whatever you choose to call them is your business just don't freak out about it.
