Staff review by
The music within is awful. An infernal racket of screeched vocals and underproduced instruments that seem intended to be a grating experience for the listener.

Then again, this is a quasi-black project and all of those above statements which could easily be taken as negatives are, in fact, positives.

Terzij De Horde are a Dutch five piece that were formerly roaming the low country, assaulting people at random as Liar Liar Cross On Fire. The band is, apparently, "post-Black", which seems to be largely black metal with some doom and perhaps even traces of screaming hardcore influence. And who knows what else? "The Roots Of Doomsday Anxiety", one of tracks on this four song EP, A Rage Of Rapture Against The Dying Of The Light was previously found on a LLCOF demo. This time it is slightly beefed up, and closes out with what is likely some Euro folk instrument I've never heard of but sounds suspiciously like a banjo. ("Did you just get bluegrass in my screaming post-black?")

A Rage Of Rapture Against The Dying Of The Light is a cacophony of screeches, nauseatingly fast wrong chords, roving bass and more horrifying screeches, the perfect soundtrack to a nice summer's eve picnic getaway with your special someone.

There is a nice review of this up, but since so few visited it i'm going to randomly beat you over the head with this release on the front page until some other artist releases a hidden gem that another staff member doesn't pick up on first.

Something about this album is really appealing to me. The guitars just violently shred along, yet the album feels hauntingly melancholic at parts.
