Today, Dunkelheit Produktionen set June 1st as the international release date for the highly anticipated fifth album, "Beyond the Dark Border" from Horrid.
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.
The track listing for "Beyond the Dark Border" is:
1. The Black March
2. Cursed Dunes
3. Blood Painted Walls
4. The Eyes Of Terror
5. The Statement
6. Sacrilegious Fornication
7. Missing End
8. Demonic Challenge

Originally released back in 2002, Horrid's "Reborn In Sin" will get the re-issue treatment from The Spew Records on January 25th, 2016. The label also issued this statement about the history of Horrid:
"In 1988 the band was formed by Belfagor (guitars) and Max (bass). They adopted the name Rites Of Death, aspiring to sound like bands such as Hellhammer and Celtic Frost. One year later the name was changed in Horrid. The first releases were issued in 1992 and 1994, years which saw the arrival of two self produced demo tapes: 'Eternal Suffering' and 'You Are Mine.' Another promo tape was recorded in 1993, although it didn’t see the light until 2009 on Terror From Hell Records.
"Each cassette generated interest among various labels, so in 1996 the band released the 7-inch vinyl 'Awaiting For The Truth' under Cryptic Soul Production. Three years later Horrid entered the legendary Sunlight Studio in Stockholm to record its second EP 'Blasphemic Creatures,' released by Behind The Mask Records.
"The mini album became an underground classic and gave Horrid the chance to sign a deal with Deadsun Records for the release of its first full length 'Reborn In Sin' (2002). Shortly thereafter, in 2006, the band received attention from Xtreeme Music and released its second full album 'Rising From The Hidden Spheres.'
"In the meantime Horrid was featured on several compilation albums with new and repressed material: 'Evil’s Birth' 2002 (More Hate Productions), 'Death By Metal' 2010 (Blasphemous Art Productions) and 'The Final Massacre' 2011 (Black Tears Productions). Many line up changes occurred throughout the band’s 24 years history. Then in 2012, after a short hiatus, Horrid came back to life when Riccardo (drums) joined the band. More...
