I’m a little bit late getting on this, but last week was pretty hectic. But the wonderfully weird Horseback posted a new song, ‘Ahriman’, from their new album, Half Blood, their first album with Relapse Records, after the label re-released some of their older records last year. If you’re unfamiliar with Horseback… where to start?
‘Ahriman’ is just hypnotic with sleek, meandering guitars, which are met by harsh, corrosive vocals. This is a band that can be beautifully atmospheric and ambient but strangely, get into your face at the same time. It’s psychedelic and strangely meditative. There really aren’t that many other bands that sound like Horseback.
