No Flesh Around The Heart

A last-minute addition to an amazing month of playing shows.

Next Sunday, the 9th, we will be sharing the stage with Winterfylleth. When we played our first show in the UK, many aeons ago, they came to see us, and we talked about playing together somewhere along the line. So as they released full-length after full-length, we continued doing what we always do. And now, finally, we can play together! We will be joined by Saille, who will release their album on this tour with Winterfylleth, and our friends of Black Decades.

Filth in the Light

Last August, we played our first shows after a year of silence. We want to thank Laster and Slakkengang for a healthy return. As we slowly crawl to the end of the last song before we enter the studio, we have been asked for three shows at the end of November.

On Friday the 21st, we will salute the passing of Mondvolland in Arnhem.

Saturday the 22nd, we will play our first Belgian show in a church in the center of Antwerp. Safe to say, we are curious.

We will be joined by amazing Belgian newcomers Drawn into Descent , up-and-coming blackmetalincrowdfest Wiegedood and Southern Lord favourites Hessian

Sunday the 23rd, we will round the tour up with a show in one of our favourite venues in the Netherlands, De Onderbroek. The last time we played there, we were still called Liar Liar Cross On Fire and 3/5th of the current band played in far worse bands. We will play with Deer in the Headlights, who are a Bosnian screamo band with an intensity and rage not unlike ours.

During this tour, at least two new songs will be performed, possibly three, and we will bring the last 12"s of the EP with us. 

Regarding the split 10"s, the first three installments of Elemental Nightmares have been released according to plan, and they sound amazing. This will also mean that our release will see the light of day December 25th. Hail Mithras

My Spine Will Be My Noose

As mentioned last time, we will be performing in Tilburg on Saterday the 30th. Joining us will be Slakkengang, a noise/black duo that has been working its way through the scene. They will play a 15-minute set, but that will be more than enough.

During this show, we will finally play two new songs, one of which, 'Absence', has been the bane of this band for over two years. As said before, we are slow and picky writers.

Later this year, recording will take place, but it feels good to mention that we will have one release out this year anyway. We are part of the Elemental Nightmares 10"-series, with bands and friends like MondvollandWildernessking and VUYVR. On Mithras' day, our four-way split with Hyperial, Parasitized and Waning will be released. The song on this 10" is a one-off, and it will never be released again in any form. You can still sign-up for this compilation, which has stunning artwork. Every 10" will feature 1/7th of a huge, encompassing piece of craft. The first one has already been released, with Wildernessking and Oak Pantheon, a.o. Especially those two songs are worth the listen. Check Elemental Nightmare's bandcamp.

Temptation V - Neglect

For the past six months, we have been rehearsing, writing and overall thinking about what will happen.

At the end of this month, we will play our first show in a year's time.

It is a reacquaintance, a welcoming and an introduction of new members and new material. Two new songs will be performed. We are joined by our friends of Laster, the latest addition to the Utrecht-roster of black metal occultists.

Adding to that, we are saluting the works of Mondvolland and their farewell in Arnhem the 21st of November. They were the Dutch equivalent of Winterfylleth, but with better records overall. 

More news to follow soon.

Denial of the Species

It has been a long time.

Our brother Stefan has left the band due to health reasons. It pains us all, but we all know as well that this was the only possible outcome. Below is his farewell.

Hey all. Let me take this opportunity to let you all know that, with both sadness and relief, I have decided to quit my guitar activities for the band.
The reasons for this are diverse. Some of you might know that these last few years have not been the easiest for me, and though I'm doing quite OK now, it has left an imprint. Therefore a full on rehearsing/recording/touring outfit is simply not made for me anymore. A heavy hearted feeling that's been itching for a while and I simpy have to step up and face it.
An other equally important reason is a desire in me to channel my thoughts and feelings into productive within the realm of other musical genres (than Metal/Hardcore).
So no, you're not rid of me yet! In fact, I already have been invited for several projects and this year I will focus on getting a solo project called Lantern Slides more running. Next to that there is talk of ending the hiatus of my former band Osewoudt.

Is this the end of TDH? Of course not! In fact a follow up for me might be lurking around the corner sooner than you can say 'a rage of rapture against the dying of the light'. So work on the full length will continue!

So let me sign off with a great big heartfelt !thank you! to all the people that booked us a show, drove our van, recorded with us, shared a stage with us, released our vinyl, did our live sound, offered us a place to sleep, anything that helped us out and of course those that bought the records/merch and banged hard at the live shows. You know who you are and I certainly am glad I do, too.

Finally of course a big warm hug and a smoky whisky to Johan, Joost, Richard and Demian, the brothers in arms that took part in the realisation of some of my dreams.

Be Seeing You. Non Timetis Messor! XO Stefan.

When we started looking for replacements, or actually, someone to bring his or her personality, way of thinking and playing style to the band, hardly a name popped up. Yet, we found a kindred spirit
Jelle A., of Nihill fame, has joined Terzij de Horde. He will be writing along and playing on our full-length, the eternal white whale. But Ahab's gaining. 

We have a couple of shows coming up, alongside Planks in Germany and with Wildernessking as these South-African friends tour the continent. As soon as more info is present, we will inform you.
