Lost Horizon

LOST HORIZON ("Awakening The World")
These guys that look like warriors from the "BraveHeart" movie are no newcomers in the metal scene... Their original formation, Highlander (1990-1995), featured the likes of Joacim Cans, Stefan Elmgren and Patrik Rafling of today's HammerFall. In 1998 Lost Horizon was formed by 3 guys: Wojtek, Martin and Christian but soon the singer Daniel Heiman joins them. In 1999 two demo songs were recorded and sent out to several record labels. The band receives very positive feedback and interest from most of them and finally they signed with Music For Nations and the four warriors enter the studio. From late March to mid August 2000, their debut album "Awakening The World" is created and set to take the metal community by storm. And, WOW, what a debut! They have a real European melodic and powerful metal sound the way Gods intended, which I love, but not sounding like HammerFall, 'cause their sound is heavier. Daniel's vocals are pretty good, sometimes melodic and sometimes harsh. The album starts with the intro "The Quickening", followed by the great heavy metal song "Heart of the Storm". "Sworm In The Metal Wind" and "Perfect Warrior" are among my favorites on this album with its teriffic choruses, killer vocals and excellent guitar passages... these songs are awesome and sure bear the hallmarks of great power metal songs. Another great one to be found on this disc is the 9 minutes long track "The Kingdom of My Will"... you will be in heaven :-) This album is absolutely recommended for all fans of True Metal... Keep your eyes open for the mighty Lost Horizon... The time is now... Hail to the new metal warriors!!!! (Review by: Marina)
