Horisont from Gothenburg, Sweden, looks to the classic hard rock and the bluesy 70′s progressive rock for inspiration. The mix of classic rock, progressive, blues and psychedelic brings the mind back to the days of Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath and November. The wha-wha, fuzz, slide, double riffs, thunderous drums and a killer voice, it’s all here.
On the album "Två Sidor Av Horisonten" from the 2009. Half of the songs on the album are written in English, half in Swedish, giving the album an exotic feel. . Horisont is also currently working on compiling their upcoming album that will be released on Rise Above Records. I belive that Horisont can provide Graveyard a good match for the audience this Friday evening at Debaser, Stockholm. Will you be there? I will!

It all started back in 2004 when a few guys, originally residents outside of Gothenburg, met and decided to form a band: UNION. It didn’t take long before one by one started to drop out or mysteriously disappear ’til the band was completely dissolved. After a couple of month they once again stumbled across each other’s paths and started talking about reunite the band but with a refining of the previous setting: and HORISONT was born. They didn’t play many shows before they found themselves recording a studio album for Crusher Records.
The members of the band:
Axel Söderberg – vocals
Charlie Van Loo – guitar
Kristofer Möller – guitar
Magnus Delborg – bass
Pontus Jordan – drums
Todays tune "Nightrider" is taken from the album "Två Sidor Av Horisonten"
