Hortus Animae

The Wave experience

Pictures from the gig at Wave Alternative Club in Misano Adriatico, Italy.
One more great evening with new and old friends, thanks to Wave, Mannaia, Sara Squadrani of Ancient Bards and the badass audience for making it happen and, last but not least, thanks to Leìt for the pics.
During this evening we presented a brand new song, There’s No Sanctuary, title track from the forthcoming EP that will be released in May (USA) and June (Europe) via Azermedoth/BlackHeavens.
We remind you that the EP can be preordered for a early bird price of 10 Euro, that will change to 12 at the release date, so hurry up there is only one month left.
Preorders are available here:

Live @ Grotta Rossa (Rimini, Italy, 09/05/2015)

The night of the 9th of May 2015 was a very special and magic one.
After 9 years of slumber we’ve returned on stage again and it was literally explosive, thanks to you, our old friends, devoted fans, that even drove hundreds of kilometres to see us. We really hope to see you all really soon.
Big thanks also to the two bands that supported us: Crawling Chaos and Funera Edo. And obviously to the Grotta Rossa Club that welcomed our rituals.
Here are some photographic testimonies. See more on our Facebook page.

Hortus Animae new logo by Christophe Szpajdel

Hortus Animae are proud to announce that Christophe Szpajdel (also known as “The Lord of the Logos”) designed their new logo!
Christophe is very well known for having designed the legendary logos of bands like Arcturus, Borknagar, Covenant / The Kovenant, Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, Enthroned, Falkenbach, Moonspell, Old Man’s Child, Seth, Wolves in the Throne Room and many many many others! Also a big thank you to MM Productions for their precious contribution to the final result.

Moreover the logo has been officially presented on January 15, in the Marks of Metal exhibition in Denmark, curated by Vitus Vestergaard (whom we also heartily thank for his availability), a special exhibition about logo design and visuality in heavy metal, with a special spot dedicated to Hortus Animae.
