Sweden’s Horisont will return to Roadburn after their highly acclaimed 2012 performance. This time, the band will be playing Cul de Sac, the friendly music cafe located across from the 013 venue, in Tilburg, The Netherlands on Saturday, April 12th. Since they were on tour with Scorpion Child, we eagerly tabbed them play the 2014 festival.
If you are an avid heavy 70s aficionado, or a lover of supreme hardrock, you will definitely dig Horisont. The band excels at crafting old school, bluesy hardrock, and on their latest album, Time Warrior, released on Rise Above Records, Horisont even incorporates heavy metal, while remorselessly going for the throat. The fact that the lyrics are sung in Swedish and English adds to band’s appeal.
Continue to stake their claim that Horisont may be the best new talent to emerge from the ever-fertile Swedish rock scene, the anticipation for their Roadburn appearance will be massive. Make sure to be there early, as Cul de Sac can only host 175 people.
Roadburn Festival 2014 will run for four days from Thursday, April 10th to Sunday, April 13th 2014 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
Tickets for the traditional Afterburner event on Sunday, April 13th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands are still available. Get in on the action HERE!

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Horisont are yet another shining example of just how good the modern music scene is in Sweden. Presumably Richie Blackmore and KK Downing have being taking over music classes with a countless amount of great bands emerging from the same places that gave us […]

Firmly rooted in both doom and epic heavy metal, UK’s Age of Taurus majestically voyage down the road also travelled by the likes of Manilla Road and Brocas Helm in their prime. Like their forebearers, Age of Taurus – led by Toby Wright (guitar / vocals) and flanked by Alastair […]

Hailing from Berlin, Germany, The Oath is one of the most talked about bands in the underground right now, and for good reason: their mind-blowing debut 7″, Night Child / Black Rainbow, puts The Oath at the forefront of the current crop of 70s inspired hard rock bands and earned […]

Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: The words “hotly anticipated” do not even come close to summing up how I have been salivating to hear this album. I remember many moons ago, I ran into the right honourable Reverend Riddell outside a gig (Grand Magus and Electric Wizard, I think?) […]

Lovingly pinched from Brandish: In case it has escaped your attention there is a bit of psych revival going on at the moment with thousands of bands from all across their world aping their 60s heroes in creating trippy, yet hook-filled soundscapes. A lot of those bands take the easy […]

Lovingly pinched from The Obelisk: In some ways, it makes sense to think of the new Church of Misery album, Thy Kingdom Scum (Rise Above / Metal Blade), as a sequel to Houses of the Unholy. Like that 2009 full-length, the title is a pun with a religious theme also […]

Lovingly pinched from Angry Metal Guy: So this is the end of the road for Lee Dorrian’s long-running psychedelic doom experiment. Looking back on Cathedral‘s career, they’ve certainly delivered some entertaining and diverse albums while helping make doom cool and interesting again. While I always favored their earlier, less trippy […]

Lovingly pinched from Virgin.com: Time to go back down the rabbit hole! Named after a demon, and fronted by the ever intoxicating Rosalie Cunningham (of Ipso Facto fame), Purson have delivered a record overflowing with occult referencing psychedelic rock with a strong 70s feel. At times it feels like listening […]

Lovingly pinched from ThisIsNotAScene: There is a line in ‘Witchwood’, the opening track on Blood Ceremony’s latest album The Eldritch Dark where singer Alia O’Brien forcefully tells us that “…the old ways remain”, and indeed they do as The Eldritch Dark – Blood Ceremony’s third album – is an album […]
