Horrenda started as an Irish experimental black metal solo project but would become a full band in 2016. Darragh played bass, guitars, keys and did the vocals for the early demos known as the "Horrenda - Solum Demos."
The sound of the band transitioned into one rooted in the second wave of Norwegian black metal; taking cues from bands like Immortal and Mayhem.
After band's demo "Neronian Times" was released, Horrenda started gigging and later found their lead singer in Arron " Nomad" O' Shaughnessy.
And after a few line up changes, Horrenda rounded out with "Crux" on drums and Keith "Donn" Smith playing bass. The first full band demo "Vile Lament" is out now!
Horrenda are: Darragh "Outis" O'Connor Live Guitars, Studio Backing Vocals, Keys/Synth Arron "Nomad" O' Shaughnessy - Lead Vocals Daniel K. "Cruxx" Heafy - Drums Keith "Donn" Smith - Bass
