Hesperian Death Horse - 'Živ' (2018, Avant-garde/Post-metal/Sludge)


New Metal Member
May 21, 2012

Avant-garde/sludge/post-metal band playing in Zagreb, Croatia since 2012.
Hesperian Death Horse 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.
Life is the theme of their newest, second album 'Živ' (Croatian for the word 'Alive') released now.

1. Saol (Part 1: Prizma)
2. Elu (Part 2: Voda)
3. Hayot (Part 3: Mezanin)
4. Liv (Part 4: Horde)

'Živ' can be purchased on Bandcamp

Recorded at Kramasonik Studio, Zagreb, summer 2017.
Recorded and mixed by Hrvoje Nikšić.
Mastered by James Kelly (Altar of Plagues / Wife).
Artwork by Snježana Mekić Delić.

Hesperian Death Horse released a music video for the song HORDE from the second studio album Živ

"Something about the video makes it a bit uncomfortable to see, but the music has something to do with that. In the main, the song is just one long repeating sequence of sludgy bass notes, a rambunctious drum pattern, a tension-torquing riff, and an ominous, chanted vocal refrain, around which the lead guitarist spins twisted, hallucinatory arpeggios that threaten inner ear disturbances." - No Clean Singing
