Previously known as Liar Liar Cross On Fire, Holland's Terzij de Horde are one of many bands bringing Black Metal to the attention of the masses through the cross-over appeal that floods their music. Mixing sweeping and epic Black Metal with long periods of doom-laden anguish, post-rock acoustics and often screamo-sounding vocals, this interesting quintet summon strange and psychotic images through evocative soundscapes, grand in scale, almost perfection in execution. For an independent release, this EP is of a very high quality, with a rich production that doesn't allow one instrument to dominate the others, letting you hear everything they throw at you with unabashed clarity. Like a sun-drenched rain, A Rage Of Rapture Against The Dying Of The Light falls down, an intelligent and thought-provoking exercise in genre concision. They have this style so well distilled; they could (given time) become one of the leading lights, despite the slightly core-ish vocals and punk lyrics.
It is a no brainer that these guys will get sighed, with a bit of luck to a label such as Season Of Mist, and I for one would love to hear what a full-length offering could provide. For now, fans of Wolves In The Throne Room and Drudkh should make it their business to discover Terzij de Horde. The new boys have arrived.
