Horcas ("Gallows") is a Heavy Metal band from Argentina created in 1988, two years after the dissolution of V8 by that band's guitar player, Osvaldo Civile. The band's growth was hampered by the constant changing of members.

By the year 1992, Zucchi had already left the band. In this year they released "Oid mortales el grito sangrado" with two members gone from the band (now Oscar Castro, played second guitar and Norberto "Topo" ("Mole") Yanez the bass). This is regarded by critics and fans alike as their best album. In 1993 Horcas opened for Motorhead and Metallica. Management problems provoked a discographic silence for more the 5 years, though the band kept playing live.
