More live recordings from Roadburn

The guy filming this is unfortunately standing in front of Kristofers crazy loud Hiwatt with double cabinets.... Kristofer told us later that the only thing he heard was his own guitar, even drowning the sound of the drums. It becomes pretty clear why here hehe.

Horisont - Second Assault Review

Some pictures from the tour with Graveyard

 Power up in Hamburg!
 Someone has to do the dirty work...Axel emptying the bands collected urine with a smile.
 Graveyard awesome as always!
 Boozin the night away
 I drank all this beer ya'll. Peace!
 Some are brushing their teeth and some (Axel) is getting drunk again.
 A very fun and interview with Soulceller magazine
 Kristofer happy about his new shoes that he bought at Netto for only 20 euro. Those 5-layer soles will last a life time for shure. Good investment!
 Barbeque in some sort of a parking lot, gypsie style!
 Relaxing and enjoying the sun while it lasts in Holland
 Graveyards road manager backed our camper into a post and cracked the tail lights
 Brussels loge view
 Sleeping in a farmers field in France
 Sleeping on a dodgy street in London
 The right rear tire exploded on the highway and nearly killed us all in northern England. Getting help from a nice police man.
Last days of the tour, waiting too long for crappy food, drinking crappy beer in Nottingham

Album Release!

Our new album, "Second Assault", will be available on CD as of the 12:th of march 2012. The LP version does not yet have a set date of release but hopefully it won't be too long a wait.

Here is the official Rise Above press release:
Horisont - Second Assault

For a country with a population of less than ten million, Sweden packs a heavy punch when it comes to loud guitars. Nurtured in the same fertile 70’s rock-rich soil that gave us Witchcraft and Graveyard comes Horisont (Swedish for horizon, if you hadn’t already guessed). They debuted in 2010 with Två Sidor Av Horisonten - or Two sides of (the) horizon for non-Swedish speakers, an album that impressed Rise Above Records so much that they simply had to add them to their roster. Rise Above main man Lee Dorrian invited them over to support Pentagram at their debut London show where Horisont’s rousing soul-drenched, powerhouse performance floored the sell-out crowd, leaving a palpable sense of anticipation for what must surely be one of the highlights of 2012.

Second Assault hails back to the point in the early 70s when Heavy Metal was just starting to be defined. This was a time when a Uli Jon Roth-led Scorpions and a fledgling Judas Priest were where fusing the colossal riffs of Black Sabbath, Zeppelin and Grand Funk to the soulful virtuosity of Hendrix, Deep Purple and Wishbone Ash.   Horisont can be found proudly jamming at the point where flares and cheesecloth shirts gave way to denim and leather.
A band is nothing without a killer rhythm section;  in drummer Pontus they have a true disciple of the holy trinity - Bonham, Ward and Paice; partnered by 4-string monster Magnus who locks in like a veteran soul man.  The twin lead attack of Kristofer and Charles lacks only surnames to be worthy of mention in the august company of Gorham/Robertson, Schenker/Roth or Turner/Powell. By turns both tastefully melodic and proudly bombastic, they play like masters yet are never self-indulgent or boring. In keeping with such a stellar band, frontman Axel delivers the sort of impassioned performance that would make his forbearers proud; veering from laidback and soulful to banshee wail, but always from the heart. But musical skills mean nothing without songs. Fear not, these are ten of the finest you could wish for. Irresistible grooves and hooks so catchy you’ll need innoculation just to be in the same town with them.     

Opening with the driving Purple-esque grooves of Time Warrior then onto the mystical eastern melodies of Road To Cairo, Crusaders Of Death’s laid back melodies and bluesy sound bring to mind Wishbone Ash at their very best. There’s the rock ‘n’ roll soul of On The Run, the Hendrixy fuzz of the title track, and nods to Fleetwod Mac on Watch Them Die and Things I’ve Seen. Topped off with the Thin Lizzy raunch of closers Hard Bargain and Thunderfight, Second Assault crystallises all that was magical and exciting about heavy rock and early metal between 1969 and 1976.  
Utterly infectious, soulful and driving heavy rock for fans of the golden age, this is an album worthy of sitting alongside Taken By Force, Argus and Live & Dangerous.
File under Damn, This Rocks!
