With haunting 70’s sounds harking back to the time when rock n roll ruled the world, Horisont immerses the listener into a timewarp. High on a plane of Deep Purple drumming, the momentary sound of the classic twin guitar harmonies could lead you to believe this is some obscure cut from Thin Lizzy back catalogue. But oh no, these swedish boys called Horisont know their heritage and craft their knowledge wisely. Now 10 years in the game they have tapped into a world where NWOBHM and the Scandinavian retro-rock revival still runs wild. Live-evil and Muskelrock festivals shed light on the denim clad nation that is rising up from the underground.
With their recent departure from Rise Above Records the new signing to Century Media records sees the Swedish quartet release the new album ‘About Time’ February 3rd 2017. Scheduled for more tours and another appearance in the US due April/May 2017 it looks like there is no stopping Horisont.
Out on their first tour on US shores, I catch up with the boys at the sold out Starline Social Club in Oakland, California. Tune in to hear us chat about Horisont’s first time to the states, plus news on their new album ‘About Time’ and upcoming tour dates.
