HARDWARES

HORISONT

Time Warriors

(Rise Above Records)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 8.0

I'll never accept or enjoy that band name, but here on their third album, Swedish classic rockers HORISONT (ugh, don't like saying it, don't like typing it, don't like reading it) do such a great job of mining retro rock in such a genuine, honest way that I'll (maybe) stop harping on them for their moniker. Fans of their first couple aren't going to be totally surprised at what's on tap here, despite a more pronounced proto-metal sound, some gothic and power overtones from back when both of those weren't swear words, tunes like 'Diamonds In Orbit' coming across between something off of an old Metal Massacre compilation and something off of KISS' fifth studio album (you know the one, right?), while 'Ain't No Turning Back' rocks the shufflestep and wah solos like there's no yesterday. Opener 'Writing On The Wall' is a perfect blast of modern classicism; 'Eyes Of The Father' abandons the classic rock pretence for moments of pure metal screaming glory, and closer 'All Must Come To An End, Part I and II'' rides the horse all the way to the tripped-out middle section. The whole album is smothered and layered with a glorious and natural production sound the likes of which are seen way too rarely around these parts these days. And when the vocalist belts out "There goes my brother... MY BROTHER!" during the hysterical 'Brother', which sounds like Trouble on triple-time, it's hard to not get completely caught up in the power and the glory of it all.
