Tuesday Teardown: Terzij de Horde – A Rage of Rapture Against the Dying of the Light Jul 14, 2010

“The Roots Of Doomsday Anxiety”

The Tuesday Teardown series is coming along strong. I’m hoping you metal heads are enjoying it! For this week’s entry, I’m featuring the Dutch black metal band Terzij de Horde‘s new album, A Rage of Rapture Against the Dying of the Light.

Changing their name from Liar Liar Cross on Fire to Terzij de Horde was probably the best career move the band could ever make. With their debut EP, A Rage of Rapture Against the Dying of the Light brewing up quite the storm, the Dutch black metal band has shown the world that once again, geographic location doesn’t mean shit when it comes to black metal. In the spirit of Wolves in the Throne Room and other avante-guard metal acts, Terzij de Horde’s creation is a string of high-intensity, never ending melodic, tremolo-picking metal. Expect ethereal vocals focusing heavily on nature and literature. Isn’t that the new trend in black metal?
