Terzij de Horde is a black metal band with dark vitalism as central theme, from Utrecht, NL, formed in 2010.
They are known for taking their inspiration from mostly literary and academic sources and intense live performances. Terzij de Horde is old Dutch for “set apart from the horde”. It is a line from the poem “Einde” (ending) by legendary Dutch poet Hendrik Marsman.
Marsman is an inspiration to the band, as are many other authors and philosophers in the same dark, vitalistic vein.
