It’s always nice (for some of us) to find a band that reminds us of the glory years gone by. But, it’s quite important to be musically adept at what they do. There are plenty of bands out there that not only fully understand the past, but can replicate it in such a way as to have us believe that if they were around “back then”, they’d have done alright.
Well, I’ve stumbled onto one for you.
Horisont got their start back in 2006, and has produced two albums, both of which have great things going on in them. What their rivivalist sounds boast of are Wishbone Ash twin leads (listen to “Nightrider” off their 2009 debut, Två Sidor Av Horisonten), Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and a host of Metal/Prog bands from the ’70s.
Två Sidor Av Horisonten was released via Crusher Records. It was followed up in 2012 with a signing with Metal Blade Records, and a new album, Second Assault. Their last album, Time Warriors, was released in later months of 2013 (which makes them due for a new one soon).
Horisont are a Swedish band with a strong tie to the metal music of the late ’70s, and the ’80s. Time Warriors is not unlike Judas Priest in any of its offerings. The band consists of five talented musicians well-versed in Rock and Roll. They are: Axel Söderberg (vocals), Charles Van Loo (guitars), Kristofer Möller (guitars), Magnus Delborg (bass), and Pontus Jordan (drums).
Horisont has a new vinyl 7″ single available, released in November of 2014. The 7″ is A-sided with “Break the Limit”, B-sided with “Yellow Blues”.
