about

DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN is proud to present HORRID's highly anticipated fifth album, Beyond the Dark Border. Italy's longest-running death metal band, HORRID have built an enviously dependable, unyielding body of work since 1989. Taking initial inspiration from the dual gods of Celtic Frost and Hellhammer, the band spent the 1990s solidifying their sound over a clutch of demos and EPs. Eventually, come 2002, their debut album manifested itself as Reborn in Sin. From there, the name HORRID has continued to stand for the timeless upholding of classic death metal values.

But now, with the imminent release of Beyond the Dark Border, HORRID are set to stake their claim for death metal supremacy. Truly a summation of everything that makes the Metal of Death so enduring and engrossing, Beyond the Dark Border possesses pretty much every element one would want in a pure 'n' authentic death metal record: immediately memorable songwriting, crushing-yet-clear songwriting, breathless execution, interesting twists of texture, and just enough melody to remain rooted in foundational heavy metal. More than that, HORRID render the album a rollercoaster of dynamic darkness, leading the listener down nine separate-yet-linked corridors of nameless horror and eldritch dread. And, at a stout 50 minutes, Beyond the Dark Border remains compact and concise and yet fully satisfying - whoever said meat & potatoes death metal wasn't the best meal? Go Beyond the Dark Border with Italy's HORRID!

Track Name: The Black March
Still we're marching on

Rotting, the purulent herd marches on
Hunger drives our shuffled steps
Black is what we see, red is what we seek
We wanna tear your insides, drink your warm blood

Greed, the only emotion we feel
Famine, will never be overwhelmed

Decaying, the soulless crowd hunts
Eraser of life through its infinite path
Alert, we're gonna hear your whispers
Beware! We're the slayers, you're the cattle

Greed, the only emotion we feel
Famine, will never be overwhelmed

Bite the flesh
Rip the guts
Tear hearts off
Swallow all that it bleeds, smash every bone

Neverending night, bottomless desire
So long the road, so little relief

Feel our nails slipping under your skin
Making their way right to your very depths
Never satisfied, craving for the next one
All we long for is the next prey's taste

Feel our nails slipping under your skin
Making their way right to your very depths
Never satisfied, craving for the next one
All we long for is your taste
Track Name: Cursed Dunes
Down on the shores of the sacred river
I was called. To rule
on the sacred kingdom, to reign
and walk above you all

I am order, I bring balance
I am the center of Heliopolis
I am life if you please me
I am death if you don't obey

In the city of the Sun
Here, where I am second to none

The falcon flying across the sky
Life comes from the light of my eyes
I possess the water, I command the flood
Show me respect, bow down in the mud

In the city of the Sun
Here, where I am second to none

Die, under my chariot
The gods are coming on wheels of gold
The lord of strength armed with claws
Father Ra sharpen my blade

My legion will not stop
Cause my land has no boundaries
I am the ruler of the whole world
Don't you dare to call you king before me

You will starve trapped in my siege
No man will ever get up his head
I came as the enemy invader
I leave as the only true god

Down on the shores of the sacred river
I was called. I ruled
on the sacred kingdom, I reigned
and walked above you all

I'm preparing to complete the circle
The Sun I drove, the Moon will greet me
The mortal shell has reached its end
The immortal god will now transform

Stone by stone they're raising the peak
Corpse by corpse they're bolstering the base
The warlocks are darkening the shadows
No one can come in and get out alive

Rise, sepulchre on the sand
Secret chamber for the afterlife
To the sky I will ascend
I'm returning to my kind
I am divine
Track Name: Blood Painted Walls
Am I human? Am I meat? Am I even me?
When did I become just my flesh and blood?

Like he did yesterday
Like he's doing tomorrow
The executioner comes to cut my limbs

Piles of dead bodies fill the air with funk of putridity

So valuable and so miserable
One of a kind, their fucking guinea pig
How many times did I lose my body?
Immortality has become endless pain

Numb, I've lost the sense of touch
Numb, I've lost the sense of time

I will make my path through the dark
And it will be red painted, guts scattered
For my goal is your life
For your life is their death

I have just one certainty:
I will survive my butcher
I'll be victorious standing on his corpse

I will dive in the river of sorrow
My blade will be steadfast and efficient
Eye for an eye, blood for blood, meat for meat

Numb, I've lost the sense of time
Numb, I've lost the sense of touch
Numb, I've lost the sense of sight
But now i can see
I am reborn
Through the death of the first lamb
And his true sacrifice
I'm no human, I'm no meat. I'm the real immortal
Piles of dead bodies lie beneath the ground
Hidden forever between blood painted walls
Track Name: The Eyes Of Terror
Run, run, run like hell, cause the evil, so close,
with its corrupting hands is soon to grab you

Among the spoiled crosses of the ones who died in his name
They believed in his essence. It showed itself lethal
While your feet bleed and your breath gets short
you can see with terror the shadows reaching out

Bleeding anger, rage and cruelty out their eyes
Run fast, don't look behind

The beasts are close, hungry for your soul
The goal is far to be reached, the light still out of sight
Hideous demons now approaching
you prey with all yourself to hold your hatred

Look at me! Here I am, my lord!
Your servant is here for you

Save me...I don't wanna die
My God please, embrace me

Why are laughing? Won't you listen to me?
Now I get your church, just a bunch of lies
And in my flesh, the passion and the sin of whom
will give us his life, will spit on your name

I gave you all my life
My blood will be my faith

The beasts are close, hungry for my soul
The goal is far to be reached, the light still out of sight
While my feet bleed and my breath gets short
I can see with terror the shadows reaching out

Bleeding anger, rage and cruelty out their eyes
Run fast, won't look behind

Run, run, run like hell, cause the evil, so close,
with its corrupting hands is soon to grab me
Track Name: The Statement
Ahahahah, come here
I'm waiting for
yooooooooou! Read carefully
the devil's book
It's writings are not for
anyone, but you surely can
Find the path through the putrid grass,

the moss and the rotting mold
Down in the Big Cypress swamp

You'll find me here,
in the ancient city of the dead

You don't need to talk,
you know what to do because
I leaked it into your mind
Puppets dancing down my strings
I lured you in my grave
Work hard to get to me

Scratch the dirt
Move the stones
Greet your pal
Climb down the steps
Turn the corner
Through the dark
Your reward is near

Pounding hearts
Deafening peace
Hyperactive senses
Nervous limbs
Sticky sweat
Your reward is death

Meet my legions of wicked fiends
Look the forbidden horror

You wanna join too?
You just follow the cries
The scythe in the sky will lead your
steps under the foggy sky

You'll always find me here,
in the somber stillness
of the ancient city of the dead
Come! Join us!
Track Name: Missing End
Lost
In the blue desert where we eat our friends
There's no more hope left for us
Grinning rotting faces look our way
Inviting us to the party of decay

Hope turns to despair

Buried alive, left with a few words written in blood
and the doubts of what would have come.
Out of supplies and lost in delusions
I had to fight for my life in a sea of pitch

When violence and brutality
attack yourself stand up and fight

Among the people with the black teeth
Far from the world we all know
we'd still find the same truth
Men are fierce and longs for blood
When your trust has been earned
that's when your back will be stabbed
Look all your work and friends
vanish in the final bloodshed

And so I lie, concealed again, invisible to survive
preparing, waiting for my chance to live

I went on a journey for fortune and fame
but fate is always ready to strike
I holed up myself in the deep of the dark
and I found the white end
Track Name: Demonic Challenge
In front of the damnation gates
I am outside Hell's entrance,
the crownless lord of all nightmares

Show me the way, deceiver demon,
take me to the starman,
the morning aster of the reign of sorrow, pain and loss.

Welcome to the Hellfire Club,
the challenge will take place tonight.
The judges will be Azazel and the Lord of the Flies.

I need the impious newborn triumvirate to give me the fiend,
thieve of what's mine.
I need my powers to grow up, over the radiant nova,
to win down in hell with perjury and tales.

In front of the damnation gates
I am outside Hell's entrance,
I lied to you all, there is no hope.
Track Name: Beyond The Black Border
Pitiful worms devoted to their god
with murderous books and crosses
are coming to be crushed under my hooves
I eagerly await thee, christians

My blood is boiling
My sword will pierce through your flesh
My shield will smash your bones
and I will enjoy every single lament

Your god looks on you
Proud of your deceits
Rich with your scams
Selling misery for gold

Beyond the black border
Look what is there
Beyond the black border
You'll soon be there
Beyond the black border

I will bathe in your blood
I will spread your guts to the crows
I will stomp your skulls
No victim of yours will be unavenged
