Herder Splits With Vocalist

Reflections Records has issued the following announcement about Herder parting ways with the band's vocalist:

"'Horror Vacui' will be Herder's last brass knuckled fist in many hipster's face with ultra bastardous vocalist Nico insulting the crowd. Since he liked spending time Down Under with women (and kangaroos) so much, he decided to stay there. The noisy scumbag that'll replace him is Ché Snelting. This notorious hound of Hades has built his criminal record with Born From Pain and Arma Gathas and will be an aggressive addition to this already relentless stabhappy pack of rabid alsations.

"The band is already working on new material to be released mid 2013. We are very stoked that Herder has found this incredible replacement for Nico. We’ve known Ché since his glory days with Born From Pain and he never failed to deliver. He’s not only a great singer but also an amazing front man. A great addition to Herder and we can’t wait to see him leading this pack of wild dogs!"

As Ché puts it:"Only one thing crossed my mind when Holland’s hardest AND best asked me to join them and scream my lungs out for them. It took me a second scream: 'HELL YES.' I cannot wait to get on stage and start recording with Herder, even though I recognize Nico’s shoes are big shoes to fill, but I will do anything in my power possible to be a more than worthy replacement. The vibe within the band is as awesome as it can be. Be prepared for greatness. We’re taking over."

Herder has also been selected to play the imfamous Roadbrun festival in Tilburg. Herder will destroy the Green Room of the 013 venue on Thursday, April 18th. The Roadburn crew comments: “After defiling the Roadburn hard rock hideout in 2012, Herder’s mission remains defiantly unchanged: to unleash filthy sludge in an outpouring of deep rumbling decibel quakes in the hellish underbelly of a world gone mad!” More...

The song can be heard below, and pre-orders are available online at this location. Reflections Records also comments:

"The possible survivors of the smoldering crater that the Herder debut album left after impact, are now completely finished off with a furious death stab to the neck. No mercy, no positivity, no sobriety. Only the strong will be left standing, the rest will have their throats ripped out.

"Filth ridden bass, crushing triple guitars, thunderous hammering drums and genuinely pissed off vocals lay down the soundtrack for prison shanking, bar brawls, heavy smoking and lizard night drives at high speed! Lock up your wives, daughters, and well, your dogs too just to be sure. 'Horror Vacui' is the new weapon against human morale and it fucking destroys! FOAD - HERDER IS HARDER!" More...
