THE HORDE was formed in 2006 and released their debut album From Empire to Ashes via 

Scenester Credential Records in June of 2008.  Their new album was engineered, mixed and

mastered by John Hopkins and John Svec at Minstrel Studios in Iowa City, IA using old school technology married with new school production values.

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…
Check out THE HORDE live at Central Illinois Metalfest 2011 at this location.
