Blackened Death metal


It’s the abysses of the human mind, it’s man’s cruel and vile nature that fuels all that is Horresque. In music and lyrics. The Blackened Death Metal this band forges in the 8 songs of their debut full–length can be described with one word only: Raging! Horresque don’t appear out of nowhere. The members are active – or have been active – in other Bands obviously. Guitarist S. D. is a member of infamous German Black Metal Band ‘Nocte Obducta’, as well as working as live musician for bands like ‘Schammasch’ or ‘Melechesh’. Singer M.R. has been torturing his vocal chords for the German Death Metal Powerhouse ‘Discreation’ in recent years.

After releasing a Demo in 2016 and making a name for themselves in their home region as a live band, the band decided to refine their style, the atmosphere of the new material took them deep into Black Metal territory, while not leaving the roots and power of Death Metal behind.

Horresque dig deep into classic trademarks of both genres, enriching their sound with a analog and dynamic production. With their own twist of double-guitar melodies and a broad vocal range of screams and growls, as well inexorable drumming, this Album does make one thing clear:

Horresque are here to conquer!
