Dark Horse White Horse premiere: ‘Black Hole’

Dark Horse White Horse premiere: ‘Black Hole’

Dark Horse White Horse is a 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. Today, we are happy to premiere their first song, ‘Black Hole’. It combines all the qualities of the band members: Bone-crushing riffs, blistering keyboard leads, inhumanly tight drums and a ruthless vocal performance.

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 first song 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).

The debut single ‘Black Hole’ will be available on all digital platforms from October 31st, and is a precursor of the band’s upcoming EP, recorded at Sandlane Recording Facilities and mixed by Joost van den Broek.
