Gothenburg’s HORISONT have released the first song and video from their upcoming album, “Sudden Death”, which is due for a release on May 15th, via Century Media Records.
Watch ‘Pushin’ The Line’ below.
The band comments: “We are thrilled to be back in business with a brand new song and video! The first taste of our upcoming album ‘Sudden Death’ is the song ‘Pushin’ The Line’. A straight up rocker! To go with the theme of the album title, we decided to record the video in an actual ice hockey rink. It was slippery, smelly and cold but as they say; no pain, no gain. Hope you’ll enjoy it!”

HORISONT’s “Sudden Death” supercharges their mountainous ascent in an immediate explosion of rich and intricately created songs, but in it’s conception was an artfully crafted 3-year labour of love. The pay-off for HORISONT’s dedicated handiwork is a confidently sumptuous album of monumental, anthemic stadium-sized rock choruses, twin-guitar harmonies, and symphonic piano-laden rock that is as rare as it is catchy and captivating. Having earned their special place in the hearts of the heavy underground, with a dedicated international audience in thrall to the stunning energy of their live shows, HORISONT are a fearlessly inventive tour-de-force of heavy rock.
Vocalist Axel declares that “Our mission was to make the record that WE wanted to do, and not what people expect us to do,” and it is with this irreverent and devil-may-care attitude that HORISONT let’s their music run wild with abandon, undeniably electrifying and moving the listener the way real rock and roll should, a middle finger to current trends.
