Horte Announces A Brand New Material

Maa Antaa Yon Vaientaa” is as captivating as it is alienating. The sophomore album by Finnish experimental post-rock extravaganza Horte is a dark and mesmerizing journey that is best consumed in one sitting – or else you’ll miss all the dramatic arcs. Horte demand your undivided attention.

“If you stare long enough into the abyss, the abyss will also stare back into you”, Nietzsche found. It is this existential experience that is the brooding essence of Maa Antaa Yon Vaientaa. Every musical idea is based essentially on emotional dispositions, which unravel as the idea is sketched, developed, then thrust into the abyss… only to echo back and find bleak resonance within the very heart that initially gave birth to it. Listening to these echoes is deeply cathartic, and an integral part of the Horte experience.

“Maa Antaa Yon Vaientaa” (“Land Lets the Night Grow Silent”) was recorded by the band at their homes and at Tonehaven Studio in Lievestuore, Finland. As an outside observer, Juho Vanhanen (Oranssi Pazuzu) worked with Horte on the production. The album was mixed by Saku Tamminen (Sink, Dark Buddha Rising).

The official release for Maa Antaa Yon Vaientaa is August 27th. Until then, keep your eyes peeled at Pelagic Records.
