Dark Horse White Horse to release debut EP on April 16

Bone-crushing riffs, blistering keyboard leads, inhumanly tight drums and a ruthless vocal performance. Dutch metal project Dark Horse White Horse blends all these elements together in their debut self-titled EP.

Dark Horse White Horse is the brand new project of Dutch music scene veterans Marcela Bovio (ex-Stream of Passion, MaYaN, Ayreon), Jord Otto (ex-Revamp, ex-VUUR, My Propane) and Ruben Wijga (ex-Revamp, Blackbriar). After working together in different bands and musical projects, the trio saw an opportunity to combine their skills and influences to create a unique mix of progressive and symphonic metal.

Marcela recalls: “Some time ago Jord joined me and the guys and gals from MaYaN on a few shows as a substitute guitar player. We were hanging out backstage before the show, and he pointed out he had been working on some new tracks together with Ruben. He asked me if I would be interested in working on them, and proceeded to play a couple of tracks on his phone… I was flabbergasted! The tracks were SO good, so heavy, so wild… I got super excited, and started writing and recording vocal demos the very next day. And very soon I realised that this was going to be something special! And now here we are, ready to unleash the our first EP into the world!”.

To record the demanding bass and drum parts the trio recruited two other remarkable Dutch musicians: up and coming bass player Siebe Sol Sijpkens (Sordid Pink, Destiny Potato, The Charm The Fury), and drum legend Ariën van Weesenbeek (Epica, MaYaN, ex-God Dethroned).

Their debut self-titled EP, recorded at Sandlane Recording Facilities and mixed by Joost van den Broek, will be available in all digital platforms on April 16.
