Illinois based Viking Thrashers The HORDE are currently writing material for their 3rd full length album which is set to be released on Abyss Records later this year. Title and release date have not been confirmed at this time. Some early song titles are: Conquering of the Firevurm, Usurper Berzerker, Darkened Embers, Behold in Despair, Destroyer... Slayer of Men and Pray Hater. The track Pray Hater was recorded by Drew Webster at the Dungeon of Doom and is available now below.

In other the HORDE news; in late 2012 Tim Matthews, Guitarist for the Horde, was officially endorsed by Krashburn Guitars. Krashburn built a custom guitar for Tim by the name of Mjolnir (pictured below).
This is real metal, played by real men of metal, for  real fans of metal. 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 Doom.

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... 

Influences are the likes of Venom, Celtic Frost, Metallica, Destruction, Kreator, Motorhead, Slayer, Cro-Mags, and Iron Maiden. They recently inked a record deal with the mighty Abyss Records for their 3rd release due late next year in 2013...

Prepare for the HORDE to take a seat amongst the Skulled thrones of previous metal masters and stand proud amongst their brothers in arms.
