With Death (Comes THE HORDE)

Unleashed in 2008, From Empire to Ashes consisted of six epic, metal classics that took the listener on a journey into dark forbidden realms and all the way to the hallowed gates of Valhalla. Songs of bravery in battle, demonic warriors, clan warfare, and bewitchment that would inspire any true warrior on the fields of battle. As the band themselves proudly proclaim, "worship the glory of death!" This is real metal, played by real men of metal, for real fans of metal. That tradition continues on the band's fire-branded second release Thy Blackened Reign.
Members of The HORDE have been playing together in one form or another for the better part of two decades, having played in past regional bands from the area. With marked influence from their prior groups, The HORDE brings the perfect mix of headbanging Mosh pit chaos, epic Sword & Sorcerer monster battles, and just the slightest touch of stoner doomage.
The HORDE has shared the stage with the likes of Exodus, 3 Inches of Blood, Job For a Cowboy, Black Dahlia Murder, Soilent Green, Skeletonwitch, The Red Chord and many others...  Influenced by the likes of Venom, Celtic Frost, Metallica, Destruction, Kreator, Motorhead, Slayer, Cro-Mags, and Iron Maiden, Their next slab of pure battle metal will be a concept album which they are unleashing in September 2011 via Stormspell Records on a metal drenched fanbase.  Prepare for the HORDE to take a seat amongst the skulled thrones of previous metal masters and stand proud alongside their brothers in arms...
