Hesperian Death Horse is an avant-garde black/sludge/post-metal band playing in Zagreb, Croatia since 2012. HDH is a narrator of psychedelic, nihilistic poetry that sings a saga of the birth, life and death of every being, each stage envisioned as a separate album forming a trilogy, after which, the band will have concluded the saga and will not create any further music. The saga will be told in the order of death, life and birth. Death was the theme of their first album ‘Mrtav’ (Croatian for the word ‘Dead’), released in 2013 by Play The Assasin Records. Life is the theme of their newest, second album ‘Ziv’ (Croatian for the word ‘Alive’), released now. Birth will be the theme of the last part of the trilogy, and the band’s last album, ‘Rodjen’ (Croatian for the word ‘Born’), will see the light of day in late 2020.
Life is the theme of their newest, full-length album ‘Ziv’ (Croatian for the word ‘Alive’), the second of a planned trilogy of releases, recorded in reverse order encompassing the human life cycle. The 4 part / 30 minute ‘Ziv’ is avant-garde black music with nihilistic poetry.
The album was recorded in the summer of 2017 at Kramasonik Studio in Zagreb, Croatia by the quintet consisting of Dario Orac (guitars & vocals), Domagoj Zunic (guitars & vocals), Marko Galetic (guitars & vocals), Ivan Kukuljevic (drums) and Slaven Jedvaj (bass guitar). It was recorded and mixed by Hrvoje Niksic, and mastered by James Kelly (Altar of Plagues/Wife). Artwork by Snjezana Mekic Delic.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
