Horizon – Awakening the world (MFN)
motherfucking christ this shit is fast. Not only is it fast, it’s
very catchy. And not only is it very catchy, it’s pretty good too.
Will I be losing myself in superlative praising again in an attempt
to produce a non-biased review? Like, hell yeah! So we all know it
doesn’t take that much to get me excited when it comes to authentic
heavy metal, but in this cd’s case it is truly justified. Lost
horizon simply have the balls to be what it takes to be a real
competitor in heavy metal for years to come. The debut-release
‘Awakening the World’ has all the signs of a true classic: great
songwriting, catchy choruses, high pitched vocals and solo’s that’ll
make you want scream along to them.
|Over-enthusiastic, am I? No sir, this band is truly great.
Lost Horizon is the continuation of Highlander, the band that gave
life to HammerFall. After Joacim Cans left for HammerFall the
remaining bandmembers got their acts together, looked for a new
singer and released this cd. Joacim must be feeling like the world’s
biggest jerk right now, because not only is the Lost
Horizon-vocalist a better much singer than he’ll ever be, this cd is
also at least a hundred times better than the disastrous Renegade cd
HammerFall buttfucked last year. Forget about them, Lost Horizon is
the new rising star in heavy metal. ‘Awakening the World is an
outstanding achievement. |
