Hesperian Death Horse are a band from Croatia that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a mixture of post black, sludge and avant garde metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 album "Ziv".
Clean playing starts off the album while the music also brings in a great amount of avant garde elements along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and all of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Clean vocals and spoken word parts can also be heard at times while the slow and heavy riffs bring in elements of sludge along with some psychedelic sounds also being used in some parts of the music and the songs also incorporate post black metal influences and all of the music sticks to a slower direction.
On this recording Hesperian Death Horse expand on their mixture of black, sludge and post metal by adding in more avant garde influences, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover nihilistic poetry themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hesperian Death horse and if you are a fan of black, post, sludge and avant garde metal, you should check out t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Elu (Part 2: Voda)" and "Liv(Part 4: Horde)". 8 out of 10.
