HORISONT
SECOND ASSAULT
METAL BLADE

Swedish quintet Horisont possess the twin-guitar fueled confidence to follow the retro metal trail blazed by fellow countrymen Witchcraft and Graveyard on their aptly titled sophomore album SECOND ASSAULT. This 10-track throwback endeavor features a bevy of proto hard rock histrionics with psychedelic blues acumen (“Spirit”) to sound as if it was taken from a time capsule locked away since 1975 (“On the Run”). Preserving the crucial bell-bottomed warmth and rhythmic thunder from bands such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Thin Lizzy with wailing vocals and screaming guitars galore, Horisont lovingly recreate the magical and mystical majesty of ‘70s hard rock. -Mike SOS
