Head over to the Invisible Oranges-site for an exclusive stream of Terzij de Horde’s Self. Out October 19th 2015 worldwide on vinyl, cd, tape and digital.
Here’s what they had to say about the album: “To say Terzij de Horde’s full-length debut has been a long time coming would be a vast understatement. Existing in various forms since 2007, this Dutch five-piece’s various EPs, splits, and a special tribute to poet Hendrik Marsman offered brief, tempting glimpses into their masterful fusion of dark neocrust and expansive black metal discord, but just enough to really whet one’s palette.
Enter Self, the culmination of Terzij de Horde’s eight years of tumultuous existence. An ode to the shedding of one’s monastic self and embracing mind-body dualism, Self mirrors its thematic elements with a striking sonic duality. A stunning alternation between shimmering, near-post-rock heights and jagged, jarring discordance, Terzij de Horde’s unbridled passion remains steadfast as our protagonist sheds his singular self for the fungus it really is.”
The creature, the traveller, is torn apart
Opened, turned outward toward death
Its thinking deranged and outraged
Its seamless garment rent
-”Sacrifice – A Final Paroxysm”, Joost Vervoort/Terzij de Horde
