Hordes - Longing For The Kingdom Of Steel

Hordes (hol) - Longing For The Kingdom Of Steel 7"EP 1994
Part I
2) Part II


This is the second and last Hordes release, mentioned in the previous post. I didn't get this one from my comrade D.B.M.W.'s blog, though he has posted it there for sure, I've had it for a while, probably acquired from Soulseek. This is a re-recording and - arrangement of the first song on the "Songs To Hall Up High" demo and sounds quite a bit different as well as being split into two parts. The sound is different and reminds me a bit of Barathrum's "Hailstorm" or "Infernal" - it's by no means clean or polished and fits the gloomy feeling perfectly. Enough talk, get this EP.

...And if you happen to possess a copy of it, sell it to me, you don't really need it!

wow, this is actually Guido's band! He used to called himself Hammerheart of The North. I used to wrote to him interviewing Hordes Of Lust, but he responded with answers for Bifrost along with their 1st promo tape. So I'm trying Hordes now. By the way Velkaarn, do u have Mustan Kuun Lapset stuff? Been looking for that stuffs.. Very good blog u got \m/hail

Thanks for the comment Janto, well Guido was out of Hordes /-of Lust in a brief time and I believe situations went on and lived pretty quickly back in those months. Anyways Bifrost would be his main focus and passion for a bit along with the oncoming label.

But of course you remember things were very hectic and different back then... with information taking always its sweet snailmail time to travel.

could you re-upload this? the second part is corrupt.

Velkaarn kirjoitti...

You're right, the fucking MediaFail upload is corrupt, once again! That's why I don't support MF much these days. Use the Megaupload link, it's ok.

Sorry, man - but I prefer to hang on to my copy! I might be able to get hold of another copy, so if you still need it, let me know and I'll see what I can do! Can't promise anything, but I'd be glad to try.

Velkaarn kirjoitti...


Yup still looking for it, would appreciate if you happen to find an extra one!

Okay, not sure when I'll know - sometimes it's a bit hard to get in touch with the guys I have in mind!
