Post-metal/sludge band from Zagreb,Croatia since 2012. Hesperian Death Horse is a narrator of psychedelic, nihilistic poetry of everyday stumbling from death to birth and between. Band members are/were active in bands such as Seppuku,Portman,Kvltivator,Tzara,Prod,Maljutka,Uthovar.

Mrtav, Croatian for the word 'death', is the first of a planned trilogy of releases, recorded in reverse order encompassing the human life cycle. ('Birth' & 'Life' will see the light of day in late 2013 / early 2014). Guitarist Sven Sorić explains, "We have an overall theme; it is a span of a lifetime, and this trilogy we have envisioned will cover the complete process in which all humans share. Despite our different languages, cultures, ideals, beliefs, and values, we all birthed into this world, live our lives, then die. It is that simple and thus, we are all equal. We want this music to convey one's internal vision of what happens during the last moments, be it minutes, hours, or days, of our life."

The 4 part / 49 minute Mrtav, is a post sludge cacophony of nihilistic poetry. The album was recorded in the winter of 2012 at Studio Depth in Pozega, Croatia by the quartet consisting of Dario Orač (guitars & vocals), Domagoj Žunić (bass & vocals), Sven Sorić (guitars & vocals), & Ivan Kukuljević (drums). Mrtav was produced and mixed by Filip Sertić.
