Review


Horn are a one-man band from Germany, and like a lot of one-man acts have been quite prolific, cranking out seven full-length albums since 2005, of which this is the latest. We are long past the days when a one-man band was by default a cheap vanity project, as there are some massive artists producing fantastic works on their own, and this album is deeply impressive.

If I didn't know this was German, I would have assumed it was part of the French scene, as this kind of melodic, pagan Black Metal reminds me of bands like Himinbjorg or Belenos. This is expansive, well-produced music with good riffs and a lot of space and melodic development in the songwriting. The vocals are split between a dry rasp and a more clean-sung voice that is still quite aggressive. I like this. It's really listenable and has a lot of mood, maybe it could have been a bit tighter and more structured, but there is some fine, fine work on here. Recommended for fans of Pagan Metal.
