Audrey Horne - Holy Roller

Audrey Horne hails from Norway. This brilliant side project of Ice Dale (Enslaved) and Thomas Tofthagen (Sahg) has paved a shockingly catchy trail of pure rock madness since 2005's No Hay Banda. The record "Pure Heavy" is packed with gritty, slick and smoking solos. And the harmonies is like ear candy.

Audrey Horne are a hard rock band from Bergen, Norway. The band took its name from Sherilyn Fenn's character in the cult TV series Twin Peaks. 

The band was formed in 2002 by Toschie (formerly in Sylvia Wane), Thomas Tofthagen (Sahg), Arve Isdal aka Ice Dale (Enslaved, Bourbon Flame ao), Kjetil Greve (Deride), Tom Cato Visnes aka King (Gorgoroth, God Seed, Sahg, King Ov Hell) and Herbrand Larsen (Enslaved).

Although some of the band's members play or have previously played in black metal bands like Enslaved and Gorgoroth, Audrey Horne's music is far removed from the black metal genre, and can be described as heavy and melodic classic rock, similar to bands like Van Halen, Kiss, Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, Faith No More and Alice In Chains.
